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.

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
"Walking the Plains & Other Solo Piano Stories" is the eighteenth release from pianist/composer Louis Landon and his twelfth solo piano album. Landon is one of my favorite artists and one that I have hosted in house concerts for the past six or seven years. I love the energy of Landon’s live performances and think this album captures that energy better than most of his previous releases. The music is more varied and includes the vocal version of “Sedona On My Mind” (the title track from his 2013 solo piano release). It seems that Landon has truly found his ultimate musical voice in Sedona, AZ after moving there from New York a few years ago. His music overflows with joy, peace, and inner harmony that simply cannot be “faked.” That’s not saying that some of this music isn’t more thoughtful or turbulent, but the overall feel of the music is that it comes from the soul of an artist who is truly at one with himself and his muse. The album was recorded at The Peace Palace, Landon’s home studio, on his Steinway B grand piano; Joe Bongiorno of Piano Haven mastered the album.

"Walking the Plains & Other Solo Piano Stories" begins with “Walking the Plains,” a piece inspired by the life-changing experience of a friend’s sister’s walk across El Camino De Santiago in Spain. The piece is unhurried but in constant motion; soulful and melodic, yet transformational - a beautiful start! “Precious One” is a lovely ballad with classical leanings and a graceful flow. “Woods Canyon” is a tribute to the creek in that canyon, which only runs once a year, if that. This lively piece was inspired by one of those times and exudes freedom and a powerful enthusiasm. “Never Ending Story” is much lighter and never stops moving. I really like the poignance of the music as well as the message that “life keeps on going whether one is in it or not” - a favorite. “Ode to Broughty” captures the essence of Broughty Cole, a close friend of Landon’s who left this world last year at the age of 27 - a free and gentle spirit who is greatly missed. “Smell the Roses” is a warm and gentle mind massage and a reminder to slow down and enjoy life. Music doesn’t usually get much more soothing than this one! “Prelude and Etude for a Peaceful World” starts out quietly and freely (the prelude) and then becomes very big and showy (the etude) - a bit similar to Landon’s “Etude for Mother Earth.” “Wind Chime” is very free and leisurely, much like its namesake. Landon uses the damper pedal to create an airy, spacious feeling that is both atmospheric and soothing. I really love this one! “Epic Journey” expresses the excitement of a new adventure - energetic and a bit impatient. I love the deep bass accents in this piece as well as the unbridled sense of fun. That energy continues, but in a completely different style with “Rodeo Gal,” a joyful ode to a free spirited cowgirl. “Call To Consciousness” suddenly turns much more serious, “capturing the energy that is demanding for people to awaken and learn how to live in a more Conscious Loving way” (quoting Landon). The swirling rhythm and sense of urgency convey this powerful, compelling musical message - another amazing favorite! The vocal version of “Sedona On My Mind” closes the album and was written while Landon was preparing for the big move from New York to Sedona - a sweet love song to a new home.

Once again, I can almost guarantee that "Walking the Plains & Other Solo Piano Stories" will be one of my Favorites for the year. Louis Landon just keeps getting more “excellent better all the time” and I give this album my highest recommendation.
