Laszlo Gardony & Don Braden Duo
Laszlo Gardony & Don Braden Duo
Internationally acclaimed pianist and composer Laszlo Gardony joins forces with saxophonist Don Braden in a duo concert featuring music from Gardony's new Sunnyside Records release* Life in Real Time*.

The CD (with a sextet including Bill Pierce, Stan Strickland, John Lockwood and Yoron Israel), was selected as a Down Beat Editors' Pick for July: "The album mixes inventive originals with fresh, exciting takes on standards, maintaining a thread of inspired improvisation and calibrated group interplay throughout·. A tremendously skilled accompanist with the voice and vision to become a great leader, Gardony has shared stages with Art Blakey and Abdullah Ibrahim, and this album makes clear why he is deserving of such company."

A First Prize winner of the Great American Jazz Piano Competition, Laszlo Gardony has released eleven critically acclaimed albums as a leader on the Sunnyside, Antilles, and Avenue Jazz labels. As a sideman he recorded with Yoron Israel, The Wayfaring Strangers, and many others. He was featured in the late David "Fathead" Newman's band at major festivals, and he is piano professor at Berklee College of Music.
