Flow, Richard Smith’s second release on Heads Up International is the total solution to multimedia “connexity.” Click. VIDEO: Exterior: Los Angeles: A day-in-the-life-of Richard Smith featuring the infamous LA traffic encountered on his way to work with his “smooth” recording staff. Click: MUSIC CD: Interior recording studio: The musicologist, composer and performer plays excellent guitar on nine tracks, including a blues-flavored rendition of Miles Davis’ “Milestones.” Joined by his Los Angeles based band, Tim Redfield, Larry Antonino and Moyes Lucas, five compositions written by the laid-back string virtuoso get the star treatment. The title track is memorable and so is “The Great Worth,” a pensive synth vibe penned by Smith. In contrast to First Kiss his debut release, Flow is the culmination of many years on the road and his early jazz-fusion roots. The electric and acoustic melodies delivered by Richard Smith on Flow are only a click away. A major innovative statement of smooth jazz and multimedia programming.
