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.

The website, also tells a lot about his background and his upcoming show dates.
