The Laszlo Gardony Quartet

featuring Stan Strickland, John Lockwood and Yoron Israel

Laszlo Gardony is celebrating the release of his solo piano CD, "Clarity" (Sunnyside)in solo and with his quartet.

Laszlo Gardony is a pianist of probing intellect and keen emotional sensitivity, who has brought his soulful performances to audiences in 24 countries. After graduating from Hungarys Bela Bartok Conservatory and the Science University of Budapest, Gardony became one of Europes most sought after accompanists. A full scholarship to Berklee brought him to America in 1983, and following graduation he earned a faculty position at Berklee where hes a renowned and inspiring teacher.

Winner of the Great American Jazz Piano Competition, Gardony is one of contemporary musics truly original voices, says JazzTimes Magazine. As a sideman, Gardony has recorded and toured extensively with Yoron Israel's High Standards Quartet and with Matt Glaser's Wayfaring Strangers. Hes collaborated with saxophone greats like David Fathead Newman and Dave Liebman, and his subtle and rhythmically intricate pianism has meshed particularly well with jazzs most inventive guitarists. Over the years hes performed with Mick Goodrick, John Abercrombie, John Scofield, Mike Stern and Garrison Fewell. In addition, Gardony has been featured with the Boston Pops, the Utah Symphony and The Smithsonian Institutes Beyond Category Traveling Duke Ellington Exhibit, and many others.

Gardony has released ten CDs, leading groups that have included Dave Holland, Miroslav Vitous, Mick Goodrick, Yoron Israel, John Lockwood, Jamey Haddad and Stan Strickland among others. His breathtaking new solo recital Clarity (Sunnyside), a soul-bearing album full of rhythmic variety, melodic discovery and an abundance of grace, arrives two decades after Gardonys acclaimed Sunnyside debut Changing Standards, the album that established him as one of jazzs foremost practitioners of the solo piano format.
