Laszlo Gardony | Jazz at the Barn
August 25 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$18.00
Internationally acclaimed Boston-based jazz pianist and composer Laszlo Gardony is one of the most impressive and technically skilled pianists working in jazz today. “A formidable improviser who lives in the moment” (JazzTimes). Laszlo Gardony has performed in 27 countries and released 14 albums on the Sunnyside, Antilles, and Avenue Jazz labels during his distinguished decades-long career. Winner of the Great American Jazz Piano Competition, Gardony has been noted for his “fluid pianism” by The New York Times, the legendary Dave Brubeck called him “a great pianist” and the Village Voice wrote: “ 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.”
His solo album “Serious Play” was named one of the Best Jazz Albums of 2017 by DownBeat Magazine. “Serious Play,” and Laszlo’s 2015 live sextet album “Life In Real Time” were named by the Boston Globe as one of the 10 Best Jazz Albums of 2017 and 2015 respectively.
A Professor of Piano at Berklee College of Music – who also teaches at Harvard University’s Jazz Combo Initiative – Gardony continues to divide his time between composing, recording, concerts, and teaching, and he remains, above all, committed to living an inspired, truthful, and productive life in music.
