July 2006 issue of Keyboard Magazine by Assistant Editor Michael Gallant of “unwind”: “Louis is right on when he calls unwind “melodic, optimistic, and peaceful.” Though this New Age solo piano album is indeed meditative and mellow, it sacrifices no musical rigor to achieve those ends. With backgrounds in jazz, Latin music, rock, pop, film composing, and classical piano (he's accompanied Baryshnikov, among other artists), Louis brings his breadth and depth of experience to bare here. His playing and compositions are sensitive as they are complex and, even within the New Age aesthetic, a diverse range of influences is more than apparent.”

“unwind” CD review by Michael Woodhead �- LuxAeterna �- January 11, 2006 ”Landon's compositions and playing draw you into a world of personal warmth and joyousness.” “unwind” CD review by Kathy Parsons �- Solo Piano Publications �- January 30, 2006 “I hear a lot of relaxing piano music, but “unwind” stands out as an exceptional CD with its quiet sophistication and gentle elegance.” ”unwind” CD review by RJ Lannan �- NewAge Reporter.com �- February 26, 2006 ”Louis Landon has some powerful and poignant music here. His style is quite gentle and his compositions are emotion�-filled vignettes of how life is and how it should be.”

“100% Me” by Kirstin Bergquist �- Pulse Magazine �- April 2005 ”Landon is quite an interesting man “ a true original. He is the type of musician who is dedicated to sharing music with the world in a way that so many of his contemporaries seem to have forgotten.”

Joyous Spirit CD review by Doug Morris �- Indie Music Appreciation Group “ Dec. 2004 ”I don't care what kind of music you think you like, buy this album.” The Gershwins, Cole Porter, & Me �- CD review by Steve Israel �- Times Herald Record �- March 5,

2004 ”The real test of the CD comes on the third song “ after Landon sings and plays the Gershwins' “SWonderful” and Cole Porter's “Night and Day.” That's when he and his trio perform an original Landon tune. Can he even begin to hold his own with these great songwriters? Yes, he can. Landon has a smooth crooner's voice with enough range to translate the everyman emotions of these timeless songs.”
