Louis Landon "wowed" the audience at the Suffern Library last Sunday
afternoon. As one of the staff members said in passing, "I've never seen so
many people in this room as we have today.
More than a hundred Frank Sinatra lovers spent over an hour listening to
Landon croon the famous songs from the repertoire of the late "Chairman of
The Board". Songs like "The Summer Wind", "Autumn Leaves", "Come Fly With
Me", "Witchcraft", "Under My Skin", "The Way You Look Tonight", "The Lady Is
A Tramp", "Embraceable You", "Body and Soul," and other well known melodies
of the late, great Sinatra. Landon was quite comfortable with his audience
and his style of music both singing and piano playing was ideal for his
"Tribute to Sinatra" program.
A Chestnut Ridge resident, he plays and sing a little like Harry Connick but
with more of a soothing relationship with the keyboard and the vocals. There
are many original pieces interspersed with the program, which blended
perfectly with the Sinatra music.
Landon is a vocalist, pianist but also a composer. There were certain
well-known tunes which Landon seemed to embellish with his grand piano
accepting every note graciously. The audience loved his improvisational
creative license. Landon has played all over the country and abroad and the
talented musician appeared to be just as comfortable playing before an
audience of beyond "rock and rollers". Landon had his albums, four in total,
for sale after the show and he also told the audience of his website where
the albums can be purchased.
also tells a lot about his background and his
upcoming show dates.
