Relax to the sounds of piano, strings, flute, guitar and others. This CD has been used to soothe and inspire. A poetic friend wrote for the jacket 'The mind stills - An essence of place which is peaceful, healing and restorative...' Try playing this CD on scenic road trips. The scenery seems to expand. Pull over if you get too relaxed John Rich has been inspired by mountains, lakes and the sea ever since his early years in New Hampshire. He has always had a strong desire to capture a sense of place with music. Summers on the lake where 'On Golden Pond' was filmed began forming his musical roots. In 1974, his other work allowed a move to the Pacific Northwest. He has been creating musical images of these magical places ever since. He now lives in a small mountain town in Idaho.
