“A clever arranger and thoughtful composer, Gardony is also a formidable soloist who lives in the moment." 
- Bill Milkowski, JazzTimes


Jazz pianist and composer, Laszlo Gardony has brought his soulful improvisations and compositions to audiences in 23 countries. Winner of the Great American Jazz Piano Competition, Gardony has been called “a great pianist” by Dave Brubeck. He has released nine albums as a leader.

His latest CD “Signature Time” (Sunnyside) features his trio of ten years, bassist John Lockwood and drummer Yoron Israel, as well as special guest, multi-instrumentalist/vocalist, Stan Strickland.

Laszlo Gardony has performed and/or recorded with Dave Holland, Mirodlav Vitous, David “Fathead” Newman, Randy Brecker, Dave Liebman and John Blake. Gardony has been featured with the Boston Pops, the Utah Symphony and The Smithsonian Institute’s “Beyond Category” Traveling Duke Ellington Exhibit. As a sideman, he toured and recorded with Yoron Israel, Shelley Neill, Garrison Fewell, Steven Kirby and Matt Glaser's Wayfaring Strangers. Gardony has been praised for his “fluid pianism” by The New York Times and for his “uniformly high quality of compositions” by All About Jazz Magazine. Laszlo has been living in Boston since 1983 where he is a Professor of Piano at Berklee College of Music- http://www.LGJazz.com
