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.

“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.
