Hungarian-born Laszlo Gardony is a superior pianist whose thoughtful and gradually evolving solos are a little reminiscent of Keith Jarrett (although he has his own voice). On ballads he tends to be a bit introspective (as if he were thinking aloud) but he can also swing hard. For this Sunnyside CD, Gardony is joined by bassist John Lockwood (who bows beautifully) and t Jamey Haddad, two longtime musical friends. The sensitive interplay between the musicians, along with the subtlety, is quite impressive and makes one want to pay very close attention to the quieter pieces.
