Hey everybody! How’s it going? I hope that you
enjoyed a most excellent summer!

I’ve been working on deep relaxation out here in NM. It’s
going well and it has led to some consideration towards
creating music again. I just did an extended improvisation
on Facebook Live. If you have a Facebook account, you
can watch and listen HERE. I really enjoy improvising and
I think that the combination of a deep, relaxed state and
piano improvisation will create some really relaxing and
uplifting music.

Because the theme of this month’s newsletter is about
relaxing, I am offering the song “Relax”, from the Nighttime Piano for Relaxation
and Deep Sleep
album. It’s pretty easy to play
and I hope that you enjoy it.

You can hear “Relax” HERE.

Christine and I always sign off with the higher emotions
of Love, Peace, Joy, and Gratitude. So we had our good
friend Dave Newman, a Placitas artist, create a sign for
us that people see when they enter our house. Click on
the link above or the sign below to see more of Dave’s
wonderful art.

Sending love, peace, joy, gratitude
and good health from New Mexico~

Spectacular sunset over Cabezon

We are celebrating! Our monsoon season
started off this June with an amazing three
inches of rain! We are ecstatic! Everything
is greening up. For New Mexico, especially
after last year’s “nonsoon”, this is thrilling.
It  looks like more rain is on the way. With
the clouds that come from this type of
weather system, we are getting spectacular
sunsets. In the sunset photo above, Cabezon,
a volcanic plug, is off in the distance. In honor
of  these spectacular sunsets, I am offering
“Sweet Sunset”,  a sheet music single
download. You can hear “Sweet Sunset”

HERE.

I am considering the possibility of performing
concerts again in 2023. If you have leads on
concert venues with pianos, if you have
a piano and would like to host a house concert,
or if you would like to host a fundraiser for a non-
profit organization and would like to feature a
piano concert as a way to raise money,
please contact me.

Sending love, peace, joy, gratitude
and good health from New Mexico~

Louis

Monsoon rain over the Sandia Mountains coming our way!

NEWS

I hope that you are having a most excellent summer!
Christine and I have continued to put a lot of energy
into our home. We are also making good friends here.
We are so grateful to have found our spot on the planet
where we can relax and enjoy our lives in peace and quiet.
Gratitude!

I have been playing a lot of tennis lately, both singles
and doubles with a number of different groups. I just got into
a very serious group in Los Ranchos de Albuquerque that
is definitely above my level. Pat Metheny used to say that he
wanted to be the worst player in any band he played in.
I feel the same way about tennis. That’s how you get better!
I am moving up the tennis food chain. It’s a great workout
and it’s fun!

In honor of the continued good fortune of monsoon rains,
I am offering “After the Rain”. You can hear “After the Rain”
HERE.

Sending love, peace, joy, gratitude
and good health from New Mexico~

New Album

Album of the Year!

Featured Single

One of our latest projects is creating a garden. Having a garden in the Southwest is much more challenging than having a garden on the East Coast. Back in New York, I used to have a 2,500 sq. ft. garden, with a greenhouse. One truckload of horse manure in early spring and the only challenge was keeping up with the weeds. Here in the Southwest, shade from the sun and protection from high winds is a priority. It’s also important to have a drip irrigation system. Water is scarce.  We love having a garden, not only for the fresh produce, but for the birds and other wildlife that it attracts.

Stay well, stay safe!

Sending love, peace, joy, gratitude and good health from New Mexico~

This song is about the planet we live on. It’s a call to action to address climate change. There is hope and positivity in this song and it is my wish that humans on the planet hear the call and begin to live more sustainably and intelligently in order to keep our beautiful planet a place where we can all thrive peacefully and joyfully. In spite of all that is happening now environmentally and politically, I have to stay positive and have hope that we will persevere as a species.

I hope this newsletter finds you all well!

We are enjoying life in New Mexico! It’s quiet and
very slow paced here, just what we were looking for.

I haven’t played one note of piano since my piano
went into storage in August. The move was energy
intensive and I didn’t really miss it until just a few
days ago. I am working on getting it shipped here
soon.

There is so much to be grateful for! 
Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Stay well, stay safe!

NEW SHEET MUSIC BOOK

My feeling about my new album, It’s a Good Life:
I feel like this album sums up my life and my current attitude toward it. I live in gratitude and realize that every day above ground is a miracle. I like to say that I suffered for 58 years and the last 11 years have been off-the-charts amazing!

Looking ahead, I have my third and final Christmas album coming out in November and one more album recorded for 2022 that is more jazz oriented.

After that, quien sabe? (who knows?) That jazz album will be my
43rd album.I might be retiring. We shall see what’s meant to be.

Stay well, stay safe!

Sending love, peace, joy, gratitude
and good health!

I saw “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring” by J.S. Bach on
someone’s Christmas album. While I don’t typically
think of this piece as a Christmas song,
I love this piece and decided to add it to
Calm and Peaceful Christmas Piano.

This song is all about chill and relaxation.
The funny thing about categories is that
it really feels like laid back country swing,
but there is also a jazz component to it because
I like to improvise. So, there you go, country jazz swing.
Using some Floyd Cramer slip notes too.

NEW SINGLES
Released on July 30th

“Recalibration”
from the upcoming album
It’s a Good Life

Stream on
Spotify and Apple Music

Download on
Amazon iTunes Bandcamp


Even though the cover of this song appears technical and mechanical,
”Recalibration”  is really about heart and the ability to change. The key to
change is self observation and understanding. That observation and
understanding comes during quiet reflection and is represented in the song
by the simple chord voicings at the beginning, middle and end. The rest
of the song is made up of swinging jazz sections that represent everyday life.


NEW SINGLE
Releases August 13th
from the upcoming album
It’s a Good Life

Sneak preview on
Bandcamp NOW!

The piece that is now called “Heartstrings” started out being called
“Hobbit Song”. It was really Frodo and Sam’s song and their incredible
journey. The music contains feelings of suffering, the strength of their beautiful friendship and Sam’s incredible loyalty to Frodo. The “Hobbit” title
morphed into “Heartstrings” upon multiple listenings of the piece.
The new title seemed to fit the music better.

Hi Everybody!

Sedona just got through a close call
with the Rafael Fire. Over 70K acres
burned but now has over 50% containment.
We’re praying for a good monsoon season,
which will hopefully start this week. We can
really use some rain here.

Hey there people in the Northwest. I hope
you are managing to stay cool. Crazy times!
When you see Portland, OR getting temperatures
that are high for Phoenix, you know that the new
normal is anything but normal.

On a family note, my daughter Brooke stayed 
with us for few days after being away for two years
on her solo backpacking trip through Asia. It was
great to see her again. What an amazing journey 
she had!

Stay well, stay safe!

Sending love, peace, joy, gratitude
and good health!

We then went up through New Mexico to Las Cruces,

This is my second cover from my recent recording session.
I don’t listen to pop or current music generally. But I heard

to cover it. Great song! I slowed it down a little and it’s a
little darker now, but it still has a great vibe to it.
