About the Album

On his third release for Pyroclastic Records, Grammy-winning pianist and composer Cory Smythe explores the climate crisis through an abstracted American Songbook classic. Smoke Gets In Your Eyes reckons with the climate emergency confronting humanity by refracting the wistful Jerome Kern / Otto Harbach standard into stark, uncanny forms to isolate themes of combustion, myopic vision, and mournful regret.
