Joyous Spirit

This CD is somewhere between New Age and Jazz. Beautiful melodies and chord changes and a light, rhythmic feel that makes it great to sit back and relax to or to put in the car as you drive.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Joyous Spirit was produced, composed, arranged, and performed by Louis Landon.

Louis Landon has played 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 and has written and produced music for film, video, and commercials, including three years of "best plays" and "bloopers" commercials for the National Basketball Association.

As a recording artist, Landon has released six CD's on the LCI Record Label. 1994 was Landon's debut CD as a solo artist and was called "Love Songs & Jazz." With 10 original songs and one instrumental, this piano trio CD received airplay and was charted on many college radio stations across the country. In 1997 came a smooth jazz instrumental CD called Joyous Spirit. In the summer of 1999, Feel This, a four-song CD of pop music was released. In January of 2000 came Joyous Spirit 2, another smooth jazz/new age CD. In 2003 Landon released "The Gershwins, Cole Porter, & Me", a live recording taken from two different concerts and featuring Harvie S on the bass and Richie Morales on drums. He has just released his 6th CD, entitled "unwind", a new age solo piano CD.

Louis Landon's personal mission in life is to create a more peaceful world by writing and performing music from the heart.

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.
