All About Jazz
Pianist Laszlo Gardony's Clarity is a single, composed on the spot, piano sonata comprising ten movements. The contemplative and intimate music bears marks of his various life experiences, from his classical training in his native Budapest to his career as a jazz educator at Boston's Berklee College of Music. Recorded in a single sitting in October 2012 Clarity is a reflection on life on the anniversary of his parent's passing. Opening with the mournful "Settling Of A Racing Mind" and closing with the lush and blues tinged "Resolution (Perfect Place)" this intensely personal disc is replete with ostinato patterns emblematic of ruminating thoughts both somber and joyous.
