First Kiss is coming soon to a CD Rom drive near you! Richard Smith’s debut released in 1997 on Heads Up International is an imaginative full-length music CD and multimedia CD-Rom with a video, artist profile, free internet access for 30 days and much more. This innovative concept advances smooth jazz toward the next millennium with Richard Smith playing nine songs on acoustic and electric guitar. Smith produced a major technical accomplishment and wrote five of the compositions. The CD is a compliment to technology and to his special guests, Richard Elliot, Peter White, Brandon Fields and Tim Redfield. The title track “First Kiss,” reflects his passion and love for his wife as well as his work and provides the listener with an exciting blend of guitar and saxophone melodies. New Media and the Smooth Jazz genre continue to be the perfect coupling of jazz and state-of-the-art-technology on First Kiss.
