Laszlo Gardony, Spire Center for Performing Arts, Plymouth, Massachusetts, USA

I went to the Spire Center for Performing Arts in Plymouth recently to see renowned jazz pianist Laszlo Gardony. Above, the stage is set and ready for the show.

Drums and cymbals in blue light.

The crowd begins to fill the venue with anticipation. And yes, the wooden pews have been upholstered both seat and back so it's more comfortable.

Mr. Gardony took the stage for a solo set. He is a Hungarian born jazz pianist of extraordinary skill and talent. In 1983 he moved to the United States on a scholarship to study at Berklee College of Music in Boston. He was the first student in the school's history to be offered a teaching position upon graduation.

Bassist John Lockwood and drummer Yoron Israel joined in for the second set.

To see and hear him perform solo is an outstanding life event. Adding the synergy of the three musicians, (all professors at Berklee), made it a transporting musical performance. And the setting in this former chapel seemed to make it almost a religious experience. Wow! 

I am looking forward to future shows at the Spire!
