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.”

From MainlyPiano
Louis Landon is going through a really creative and productive period in his life and his music just keeps getting better! Although I think I still like last year’s "Peaceful Solo Piano From the Heart" just a little bit more, "Sedona On My Mind" is excellent (and getting better all the time!!!). Known as The Pianist for Peace, Landon has taken on a second mission to inspire people to live joyously and passionately, and most of the music on this album is very upbeat and lively. A couple of tracks are darker, giving the album as a whole a balance in moods and emotional energy. It is also a showcase for Landon’s more-than-impressive playing chops. Recorded and mastered by Joe Bongiorno at Piano Haven Studio in Sedona, AZ, the piano sound is impeccable - warm, clear, and gorgeous.

"Sedona On My Mind" begins with the title track, a piece Landon later wrote lyrics for. The strong melody sings with or without words, conveying a relaxed, almost carefree optimism, and a sense of moving forward - a great start! “Wide Open Spaces” is played mostly in the upper registers of the piano, expressing feelings of awe and wonder. When Louis played “Spring Has Sprung” in concert at my house last month, a pair of hummingbirds were dancing around in my fuchsias outside the window - a perfect image for this piece. I love “Leave the Past Behind,” one of the darker pieces (I know I always gravitate to those!). Alternating between major and minor modes, the piece feels conversational, imparting wisdom and life experience. “Beautiful Day” is languid and soothing, creating a mood of blissful relaxation. “Silent Movie” tells a story through the use of musical themes that vary widely. If you’ve been following Landon for any amount of time, you know that he has an Adirondack chair in his backyard that has taken on a life of its own. It has a Facebook page and was featured on the cover of Landon’s retrospective album, 10 Years. Now the infamous chair has its own song - and a beautiful, serene piece it is! “Sun On My Face” is joy set to music. “Play In Seven” takes an odd time signature and runs with it - fluid but not quite smooth with that odd beat, yet compelling. “Is This Goodbye?” is my favorite. Beyond sad, this expressive and deeply emotional piece grabs me every time. I can’t wait for the sheet music! “Sunday Musings” feels like an improvisation - very free and spontaneous yet cohesive, sharing random thoughts at the piano. “Liberation” closes the album with happiness jazzed up and feeling good!

Hmmm - after writing this, now I’m not sure which of the two albums I like better. Sure to be one of my favorites for the year. Very highly recommended!

Review excerpt from Music and Media Focus
Among the most awe-inspiring vistas I’ve had the pleasure of viewing are the red rock canyon lands of Sedona, Arizona. One recent transplant to this primordial landscape is pianist and Steinway Artist, Louis Landon, who considers himself to be a “pianist for peace,” and has devoted his life and music to that end. The album opens with the title track, which, to my ear, had a bit of a pop feel to it. When it transitioned from the first verse into the chorus, I was reminded momentarily of the style of Billy Joel. But Louis is a unique stylist and I appreciated the various influences that surfaced in this composition. I thought I even heard a brief trace of Latin jazz about two thirds of the way in. A more introspective feeling characterizes the next piece, “Wide Open Spaces,” with its lovely descending progression and appropriately spacious ambience. There is a cinematic quality to a track called “Spring has Sprung,” that is one of the most original sounding solo piano pieces I’ve heard in a while, and shines a spotlight on Louis’ keyboard virtuosity. Not only is there compositional diversity heard from track to track, but often within the structure of a single piece, such as on “Silent Movie,” which flows masterfully through a number of contrasting movements in a tour de force performance.

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.
Like the natural beauty of Sedona itself, Louis’ music is a blend of elements encompassing earth and sky, at times flowing like water, and at others, burning with passionate fire. I’m greatly impressed with his artistic abilities and look forward to hearing more from this talented composer and performer in the future.
