Jazz Pianist Laszlo Gardony at The James Library
Oct 23 @ 7:30 pm

The James Library & Center for the Arts, Norwell’s historic community arts center and lending library, presents a fall season of a variety of music, literary programming and art gallery events serving the South Shore at 24 West Street, Norwell.

Acclaimed jazz pianist, composer, and James Library favorite Laszlo Gardony returns to celebrate his live solo album La Marseillaise (Sunnyside Records) with a solo piano concert. Hailed by JazzTimes as “one of contemporary music’s truly original voices,” Laszlo’s performances convey the joy of inspired creation, audience connection, and moving spontaneous improvisations. Gardony’s concerts are one-of-a-kind performances drawing from deep feeling, prodigious technique, and a playful curiosity that thrives on interpreting each unique moment. He will perform new compositions, his own arrangements of standards, a classic Italian song, a re-imagination of an iconic French revolutionary song and spontaneously created pieces. Gardony has said, “Music has a direct effect on our emotions and also on our well-being.” Not to be missed!

Voyage of Mercy tells the incredible story of the famine, the Jamestown voyage, and the commitment of thousands of ordinary Americans to offer relief to Ireland, a groundswell that provided the collaborative blueprint for future relief efforts and established the United States as the leader in international aid.
