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~ Louis
Featured Single from Popcorn Jazz Piano “Celebrate Earth”Listen Apple Music, Pandora, Spotify Download on Bandcamp, Amazon 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.

This is a hard copy sheet music book for the album PANAMA PIANO. It is available at louislandon.com. You can also download a PDF copy HERE.
Panama Piano was released on July 10, 2020 and was recorded at the Peace Palace, Sedona, AZ on a Steinway B during the first two weeks of May, 2020.
This album was the result of a two week road trip through the country of Panama. It was totally magical. It was inspiring and joyous. Hopefully you will hear it in the music. I approached this album in a similar way to Southwest Solo Piano, with one major difference. For Southwest Solo Piano, I would think about each of the places that we visited, and then improvise music based on those thoughts and feelings. With Panama Piano, I started with an improvisation after considering places and experiences, but instead of recording the improvisations, I would compose the pieces using the ideas and melodies that came up during the improvisation.
A lot of beginning piano players and teachers have been asking me for easy sheet music renditions of some of my more popular pieces. I decided that I would chose ten pieces and see if I could create simplified versions so that beginning pianists could enjoy successfully performing my music.
Try out this free download of “Peaceful.” I would love to know what you think. And if you like it, there are nine other pieces available on my website.
