“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.

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.
