About the Album

"Irrepressible" is the opening track from Close Connection by the Laszlo Gardony Trio. On his 11th album for Sunnyside, Hungarian-born pianist-composer Gardony reunites with his favorite rhythm tandem of bassist John Lockwood and drummer Yoron Israel. “It was absolutely comfortable,” says the veteran musician of the freewheeling session for Close Connection. “We’ve been playing together for more than 20 years, and after all that time it’s easy to communicate...they really understand the vibe and the whole feel and meaning of what has inspired the music.” Close Connection finds Gardony addressing his own roots, specifically folk music elements from Central Europe. That quality comes across on the Gardony original “Irrepressible,” which teems with dissonance and distinctive Central European scales.
