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

From MainlyPiano
As the title explains, "Ten Years: A Peaceful Solo Piano Retrospective" is Louis Landon’s “Best Of” collection with favorites from his first six solo piano albums. (His first piano release, "Unwind," was actually released in 2005, but who’s counting?) The sixteen tracks cover a broad emotional and musical range and appear in the order they were released, showing the evolution of a style as well as the person who created the music. Three of the tracks were re-recorded with updated arrangements for this album, reflecting how Landon plays them now. I have always really enjoyed Landon’s music, but think his last few albums have been stellar - especially last year’s "Peaceful Solo Piano From the Heart." A lifelong professional musician with a strong background in literally all kinds of music from classical to jazz to pop and new age, Landon brings much experience to his original music and plays it with an effortless touch that can be magical. Whether he’s writing about his daughters, icicles, mermaids, joy, or emotional pain, his expressive playing goes deep and says so much.

The first three tracks come from Landon’s 2005 release, "Unwind." “Peaceful” and “Freefalling” were both updated and “My Brooke” is in its original form. "Peace Revolution" was released in 2007, and “Skye’s Song” and “Camelot” (updated) come from that album. Next up was "Solo Piano For Peace" in 2009, and “Seattle Morning” and “Bittersweet” come from there. For me, a turning point came with 2010’s "Solo Piano For Love, Peace, and Mermaids," which was inspired by Landon’s “Improvs For Peace,” a series of improvisations he recorded and posted on his website for free download for several years. Four pieces from that album grace "Ten Years": “Heartbreak Ballet,” “I Found You,” “Siren,” and “A Lover’s Kiss” - all favorites of mine. I love the hypnotic “Siren”! Landon’s "Peaceful Christmas" (2011) is one of my favorite Christmas albums ever, and two of his originals from that album are included - “Family” and “Icicles” (another piece I dearly love). As I said, last year’s "Peaceful Solo Piano From the Heart" is my favorite of Landon’s albums, and the three pieces from that album are “My Joyous Soul,” “Twilight,” and “Faux Tango Fantasy” - all truly exceptional.

If you are new to Louis Landon’s music, "Ten Years" is a wonderful overview. Longtime fans will love having a highlights collection with new arrangements of three old favorites. Very highly recommended!
