New Single – “Diablo Rojo”

Diablo Rojo Cover

“Diablo Rojo” was released on July 3, 2020. It is a single from the upcoming album, Panama Piano.

It is available for streaming on Spotify, Apple Music, and Pandora Radio

It is also available for downloading at iTunes, Amazon, and Bandcamp

This song is about the rogue buses of Panama City and beyond. Diablo Rojo means Red Devil. These are colorfully painted buses with magnesium rims and chrome plated exhaust pipes that roar through the city streets with music blaring. These old U.S. school buses were the only mass transit back in the day. The buses are privately owned and charge $.25 a ride. Apparently with no seat belts or safety, these buses are pretty dangerous and they are being phased out and replaced by normal looking mass transit buses. It is sad that so many of them have been scrapped as each of these buses is uniquely painted and can be seen as works of art.

New Single – “Casco Viejo”

Casco Viejo Cover

“Casco Viejo” was released on June 26, 2020. It is a single from the upcoming album, Panama Piano.

Stream on Spotify   Apple Music  and  Pandora Radio

Download on Amazon  iTunes and Bandcamp

“Casco Viejo” is another single from the upcoming Panama Piano album. Casco Viejo is Spanish for Old Quarter. This area reminded me of the French Quarter in New Orleans architecturally. It is well known for its dining and nightlife scene with cocktail lounges, rooftop bars, and global restaurants. Approaching this song musically, I connected with the music of the old dance halls of Cuba. The music is definitely old school Latin. I felt like I was channeling that type of music with this song.

“Las Lajas” is a single from my upcoming album, ‘Panama Piano.” It was our second beach experience on our amazing Panamanian road trip.  We took a five minute walk to the beach from our little B&B casita and were blown away by the fact that we were the only ones on the beach for as far as we could see in either direction! We saw living sand dollars and some baby sea snakes when the waves would wash in. It was a fantastic experience and super relaxing. We were filled with openhearted gratitude.

New Single – “Pelicans”

Version 2

“Pelicans” is a single from my upcoming Panama Piano album. It was inspired by a pelican that I videoed when I was walking along the Amador Causeway in Panama City. That pelican inspired this song. I watched as he flew and dove for fish. He made it look so easy. This song reminds me of Satie’s “Gymnopedie” because of its simplicity and waltz feel.

New Single – “Rocking Chair”

2. Rocking Chair cover“Rocking Chair” was released on April 10th, 2020.

It is available for streaming on Spotify, Apple Music, and Pandora Radio

It is also available for downloading at iTunes, Amazon, and Bandcamp

Rocking Chair is very relaxing and positive. I tried to capture the feeling that one gets when in a rocking chair. I love this song but this song is most definitely an earworm. When I completed this composition and played it a few times, it got into my head and heart and would not let go. It followed me for days and every time I hear it, it goes on repeat in my head. The only way for me to make it stop is to play or listen to another song.

“Rocking Chair” is a track from the upcoming album Thanksgiving Piano out on April 24th, 2020.

New Single – “We Give Thanks”

We Give Thanks cover small

“We Give Thanks” was released on March 27, 2020.

It is available for streaming on Spotify, Apple Music, and Pandora Radio

It is also available for downloading at iTunes, Amazon, and Bandcamp

The inspiration for “We Give Thanks”: Gratitude! Every day on earth is a miracle. That we are alive in these bodies is cause for celebration and gratitude! How amazing is it that we have this life experience even in these very unusual and difficult times! Gratitude in every waking moment. Presence. I thought that having a piece called “We Give Thanks” was a great way to end an album called Thanksgiving piano. This piece came straight from my heart.

“We Give Thanks” is a track from the upcoming album Thanksgiving Piano out on April 24th, 2020.

Produced, arranged & performed by Louis Landon.

New Single – “Agave”

Agave single cover small 600

“Agave” was released January 3, 2019. Recorded at the Peace Palace in June, 2019 on a Steinway B.

It is available for streaming on Spotify, Apple Music, and Pandora Radio

It is also available for downloading at iTunes, Amazon, and Bandcamp

“Agave” was inspired by the plant. Agaves have sharp marginal teeth, an extremely sharp terminal spine, and are very fibrous inside. The Native Americans used the agave in many ways. You definitely don’t want to bump into or fall onto one of those sharp terminal spines as they will easily puncture the skin. The beauty of the agave is when it flowers. Stalks shoot up from the middle of the plant and can be 10 – 30 feet high and have beautiful colored flowers. After flowering the agave dies.

Produced, arranged & performed by Louis Landon.

Two New Christmas Singles

In preparation for Christmas music listening, I have released two new singles.

“Sing We Now of Christmas” and “What Child Is This?” are favorites of mine. When I record Christmas songs and hymns, I try to give them my own spin and create an arrangement that makes it sound different and yet reflective of the original arrangement.

“Sing We Now of Christmas” was released on November 12, 2019.                                           It was recorded at the Peace Palace in August, 2019.                                                                    It is available for streaming on Spotify, Apple Music, and Pandora Radio.                                  It is also available for downloading at iTunes, Amazon, and BandcampSing We Now of Christmas coverProduced, arranged & performed by Louis Landon.                                                               Music mastering: Joe Bongiorno at Piano Haven Studio, Sedona, AZ.                               Cover art and design: Louis Landon

New Eagles Cover Single – “Best of My Love”

“Best of My Love,” a cover song by The Eagles, was released on September 2, 2019. It was recorded on June 5, 2019 at the Peace Palace on a Steinway B.

It is available for streaming on Spotify, Apple Music, and Pandora Radio

It is also available for downloading at iTunes, Amazon, and Bandcamp

Best of My Love Cover
“Best of My Love” is one of my favorite Eagle songs. I used to play it and sing it in bands many years ago. I tried to do a cover version of this song and it kept falling flat. Then I had an idea to completely change the feel of the song to 6/8 and give it a kind of gospel-like feel. It became much grander and I really liked the way it came out. I like taking someone else’s song and making it my own.
