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.”

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
