Christmas Concert Series: Laszlo Gardony
“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.
