Jazz Pianist Laszlo Gardony
Saturday, April 4 at 7:30 pm
Tickets: $30 | $25 senior | $15 Students
Acclaimed jazz pianist, composer, and James Library favorite Laszlo Gardony returns to celebrate his live solo album La Marseillaise (Sunnyside Records) with a solo piano concert. Hailed by JazzTimes as “one of contemporary music’s truly original voices,” Laszlo’s performances convey the joy of inspired creation, audience connection, and moving spontaneous improvisations. Gardony’s concerts are one-of-a-kind performances drawing from deep feeling, prodigious technique, and a playful curiosity that thrives on interpreting each unique moment. He will perform new compositions, his own arrangements of standards, a classic Italian song, a re-imagination of an iconic French revolutionary song and spontaneously created pieces. Gardony has said, “Music has a direct effect on our emotions and also on our well-being.” Not to be missed!
“Armed with a piano style that encompasses Bill Evans’s elegance, Herbie Hancock’s drive and Keith Jarrett’s passion, Gardony’s music … creates a meditative state conducive to the attainment of man’s most enduring and timeless aspirations.” – Eugene Holley, Village Voice
“He is a great musician and that’s all you need.”– Dave Liebman (Miles Davis Group)
Laszlo’s previous solo CD, “Serious Play” was named one of the “10 Best Jazz Albums of 2017” by the Boston Globe’s Jon Garelick, by Arts Fuse’s Michael Ullman and by Patriot Ledger’s Jay Miller.
