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.
