Laszlo Gardony: Life in Real Time

Maurizio Zerbo By

Questa incisione conferma il progresso artistico di Laszlo Gardony, particolarmente sotto il profilo degli equilibri sonori. Arrivato al quattordicesimo album, il pianista espande per l'occasione la sua tavolozza timbrica, riservata fino ad oggi all'esplorazione delle possibilità espressive del trio con pianoforte-basso-batteria. Cambiano quindi le dinamiche e le strategie in questo concerto bostoniano, con l'apporto di tre ben noti sassofonisti. Grazie anche alla dimensione live, ritroviamo quell'intenso e coinvolgente gioco di relazioni che solo un bel concerto jazz può offrire. In questo seducente flusso musicale si snoda un dialogo fantasioso, che coinvolge l'ascoltatore.

Rigoglioso al pianoforte, il leader convince anche per le raffinate tessiture delle sue composizioni originali. Il musicista ungherese ha allestito un sontuoso tappeto sonoro, tessendo trame dense e fungendo da regista catalizzatore del progetto. Al resto ci pensa il lucido gioco improvvisativo dei fiati, con assoli articolati. Gli sviluppi armonici dei due standard sono particolarmente ricercati, ma spicca anche il serrato e swingante "The Other One." Gardony è un artista di autentico spessore, che meriterebbe maggior attenzione in Italia.
