2011: first solo album “Defense Mechanisms”. Recorded in Brooklyn with Berklee comrades Matt Garstka (drums) and Casimir Liberski (piano). ”Is there such a thing as “math-jazz”? I’ve no idea, but it will have you tapping your toe and scratching your head at one and the same time. (...) An engaging and sometimes challenging, but always entertaining listen (...)” (Roger Trenwith - DPRP)
2015: second LP, “Stars, Plants & Bugs” (Dalang!Records). An impressionist concept-album with psychedelic and prog rock overtones. ”The arrangements drift seamlessly from modernistic electronic and sci-fi fuzzed bass backgrounds, to venture forth across spacious cosmic vastness, to dropping in on rarefied alt-lounge jazz piano respectfully paying homage to ancient wonder.” [Roger Trenwith - The Progressive Aspect]
2017: “DUAL”, a collaboration with drummer Matt Garstka, featuring three guitarists (David Potaux-Razel, Aki Ishiguro, Jussi Reijonen). Postmodern classical melodies by Louis, written over Matt’s Math-grooves. “The underground modern jazz album you didn’t know you needed.” [Dave Tremblay - CTEBCM?] “A spidery, hypnotic beast (...) A truly impressionist and modern architecture. If you have an ear for true progressive music, you need to hear this.”” (Roger Trenwith, The Progressive Aspect).
