Album Notes
Joyous Spirit was produced, composed, and arranged by Louis Landon. All instruments were also performed by Louis Landon.

Louis Landon is a composer and Steinway Artist, formerly of New York and currently of Sedona, who has dedicated his life to music. His passion is for peace. His career has taken him around the world playing a variety of styles with some of the most recognized names in the entertainment industry: classical music for Mikhail Baryshnikov on national and international tours, Latin music with "Pucho and his Latin Soul Brothers" on national and international tours, pop music with Rupert "Pina Colada Song" Holmes on television and national tours, rock & roll with John Hall, opening for "Little Feat" on national tours. For the past 27 years, through his production company, Landon Music, he has written and produced music for film, video, and commercials, including three years of "best plays" and "bloopers" commercials for the National Basketball Association. Not long ago, Landon realized that his music - the solo piano compositions that bring him so much joy and peace, could surely bring joy, and particularly peace, to millions around the world. Louis Landon is currently working with three missions: 1. To create a more loving and peaceful world by writing, recording and performing, music from the heart. 2. To inspire people to live joyously and passionately. 3. To awaken and to assist people in healing themselves through music and mentoring. He has released 21 CDs on the LCI record label his latest is Healing Hearts 3 - Solo Piano.

Reviews
"He has a gift for composition that is second to none." New Age Reporter

"…for those who like their solo piano music rich and full." Wind & Wire

"… indeed meditative and mellow, [he] sacrifices no musical rigor to achieve those ends. With backgrounds in jazz, Latin music, rock, pop, film composing, and classical piano, Louis brings his breadth and depth of experience to bear here. His playing and compositions are sensitive as they are complex and… a diverse range of influences is more than apparent.”
Keyboard Magazine

“While some pianists are virtuosos in their playing and others may not be as technically proficient but have great emotional content in their music, Louis Landon brings it all together with impeccable style and grace. His work covers diverse compositional terrain, incorporating influences of classical, new age, jazz, pop, and more in a mellifluous spectrum of moods and musical colors.”
Michael Diamond Music

Uplifting, Healing Music at it's Best !!
This album has the power to heal. Music is supposed to transport you mind to another place in time and this album does just that. Louis is able to take you from the stress of your day to a beautiful beach with a cool breeze blowing through your hair. Next he will take you on a safari. My point is Joyous Spirit is not only a musical experience but a visual one as well. I was moved by the power of Landon's music. I'm sure you will be moved . Pick up this cd as it's a must for your collection.

One of the best albums I own!!
- As of today, 21 Nov '04, I currently have 1,286 music cd's, classical, country, new age, rock, & others in my personal collection. This album is one of the top 10 discs in that collection. I made the decision to go looking for more New Age artists to add to my collection, and of course, I started my search at CDBABY.com. This album was one of those the search found. I wanted a copy as soon as I heard the clips from it. The first time I played the disc after it arrived, I fell in love with it. I can't stop listening to it!! It lives on my stereo. I have been playing it for everyone I know and they all want a copy of it. Well, okay, I've ordered 20 copies of it from Louis so I can use them as Christmas presents this year. So, you might say I kind of like the disc.
So what's so great about it? It has 11 tracks on it and every one of them is a fine piece of wonderful music. It's what I would have to call "New Age Jazz" because it's definitely great piano jazz but it's also truly a New Age experience at the same time. It sounds for all the world as though you're listening to a really good, well rehearsed jazz quartet or quintet, but it's all just one man, one very fine musician using various instruments and putting down one track at a time till it ends up in a sound that easily convinces your ear that you're listening to a whole small orchestra. You'll hear guitars, string bass, organ, wind instruments, drums of several kinds including steel, other percussion instruments, even a little Lionel Hampton xylophone, a little Ramsey Lewis here and there, and over all of it, the sweet, undeniably great piano of a pianist who started at age 5. It's got a rock beat, a Latin beat, blues tones, jazz phrasing, a mix of acoustic and electronic synthesizer sounds, melodies, harmonies, counterpoint, I mean geez folks, this music has it all. It is guaranteed to have you tapping your feet, bouncing, moving and swaying with the rhythms whether you're sitting, standing or walking. It will move you!! Fantastic work!!!

If I were to try to pick out favorite tracks, I guess they would be Pursuit Of Happiness, Golden Glow, Carnival, Amalfi Dream, Saved By An Angel, and my most favorite of them all, track 11, The Artist's Way. The last 60 seconds of this song will absolutely compel you to get out of your chair and MOVE! It's GREAT STUFF!!!
I'll also say that the songs titled Starbright & Breath Of Life are probably the ones that most reminded me of a true "New Age" electronic music work, like maybe something a David Arkenstone or David Lanz, or maybe even Yanni would come up with. The piece titled Skye's Song, with it's oriental flavor might fit that also, or maybe even a work by Kitaro.

Bottom line? Buy it. I don't care what kind of music you think you like, buy this album. It's now on my "Indie Essential Albums" list. I promise you'll find yourself saying that it was some of the best money you ever spent on music. Guaranteed. Folks, Mr. Landon has served up a masterpeice of ear candy; come feast yourself.
