Happy Holidays to you! Wishing you all the best and a Happy New Year!

This month’s new sheet music is special to me. Most people think that “Is This Good-bye?” is a “break-up” song. The truth is that I wrote this for my father when he was in the hospital almost two years ago. I didn’t think he was going to make it. He was back in the hospital a few weeks ago, and again, he got well and went home. I’m going to start calling him the Bionic man. He will be 90 in April and he’s still playing piano!

Lot’s of gigs and concerts this month. Especially looking forward to a week in Santa Fe at the beginning of December. Haven’t been there since the 80’s. Also, three Christmas concerts in Sedona and Prescott with my good friends and fellow Whisperings artists, Joe Bongiorno and Christine Brown.

I hope that you didn’t miss the Christmas specials above with Gift Pack CDs as low as $5.

Thank you for your continued love and support!

love peace happiness~ 

Louis

Latest Review of Sedona on My Mind

 November 25, 2013

louislandoncover2

Sedona On My Mind
Louis Landon
2013

Among all contemporary pianists recommended, Louis Landon is a must listen.His compositions are dressed with an exquisite jazz touch, and what has become his trademark, and something that brings freshness to his music and art. Is not necessary to explain the title of the latest work of Landon, Sedona On My Mind. The grandeur of the place and the beauty of it impressed the artist, making each place, every moment, hiciese song, so this new album was born, a cheerful and brilliant work in which thirteen songs describe his trip to Arizona.

The part which names the CD is just at the touch, immense sensations. Resorting to the aforementioned touch of jazz, Landon takes a masterful performance, focusing on each note representing nostalgia remembering the moments lived in Sedona. The wealth of Sedona On My Mind is so great that the listener is able to experience the same emotions.

More friendly and personal, “Wide Open Spaces” shows the mystery of the great places of Sedona. The music flows with difficulty in some fragments, crescendo other briefly. “Wide Open Spaces” does see the insignificance of the individual in such splendid place.

Bright and playful melody in “Spring Has Sprung”. Quick Tips converge with style and force in this explosive composition that conveys optimism.

“Leave the Past Behind” is one of the great pieces that can be found in Sedona On My Mind. Landon’s hands show concern and melancholy, his right hand a worried tone, powerful music in the chorus, while his left wields dark notes, muffled in a bewildering tempo.

Dreaming of a perfect day, here’s “Beautiful Day”. The beauty of music is comparable to the rising sun of a new day. The romantic piece of music is formed of high notes played with care and a left hand that plays beautiful progressions.

Another major piece of the album is “Silent Movie”. Bereaved Hits low chords accompanying it will be a burst of energy and strength. Louis’s mastery is evident in this composition where courage increases every second.”Silent Movie” is like listening to two pieces join as surprising. Speechless …

A time to sit, relax and reflect. With “The Chair” opens a huge stage, inspiring. The perfect music to enjoy all the bombs that belleza nuestros the way, he tiempo park and give us a moment to nosotros mismos.

“Sailor’s Song” goes unnoticed. Although the music is not much positive to stand out from your notes.

Of all the tunes Sedona On My Mind, include “Sun on My Face”. The opening, which is also the refrain of the piece, is friendly but passionate at the same time. In “Sun on My Face” is expected as a percussion accompanist.It’s just a piano plays a simple melody. Never a melody was so intense.

Like “Sailor’s Song”, unattractive found in “Play in Seven”. In contrast to the rest of the tracks, we discovered an interesting melody or a technique that surprised.

A farewell made music, “Is This Good-Bye”. There are no more distressed than that created by the hands of Landon, giving the piano all the feeling of loss and desolation that pervades the artist’s own music. Play this music completely changes the mood. Unbelievable.

Sadness becomes melancholy “Sunday Musings”. All experienced, seen everything, sense everything is born from the piano keys, showing the feelings that invade the pianist, his reflections have soundtrack.

“Liberation” closes the album Jazz Beat. A perfect title for what they transmit their notes. Landon gets carried away and plays a carefree music, friendly, showing endless possibilities.

Grand piano found in Sedona On My Mind. It is always interesting and a pleasure for our ears to discover new parts of jazz / contemporary fusion of Master Landon. Sedona On My Mind is a live album, The Diary of a musician inspired by nature that allowed for some incredible love scenes, becoming one in music. Great job!.

Happy Cinco de Mayo! (in 5/4 time)

Cinco de Mayo

click on title to listen to song

Cinco de Mayo cover art
  • To come up with music off the top of one’s head is difficult enough, but to come up with something in 5/4 time really surprised me. Cinco de Mayo means the 5th of May and it’s the fifth track on the CD. I was really happy with that. I hope you like it.
