Levitation II :: Liner Notes
For many years I had envisioned a duo album project and partnership with a pianist. For many years I had listened to pianist after pianist and never found one with whom I thought such a partnership would work. At times I wondered if I was seeking in vain and that the pianist I sought did not exist.
And then one day in 2020, I listened to one of Laszlo's solo albums, and continued listening to more of his work. I contacted him and asked if heíd like to do a project, and he agreed.
After a few minutes in the recording studio, I knew I'd found the right keyboard partner and collaborator. The artistic connection was immediate and strong. Laszloís playing was a joy to work with, as he instinctively knew the direction needed for each piece.
I look forward to our ongoing collaborative partnership and future album projects.- Kevin Kastning
I got to hear Kevinís music after we connected online during the isolating times of the Spring of 2020. I was intrigued by Kevinís sound and playing style and when he suggested a duo project I gladly agreed. Open improvisation is an important aspect of my performing and composing process, so I felt comfortable with Kevinís method of all-improvisational music making. I was also impressed by and felt kinship with his sincere artistic integrity.
Once we met in the studio, I was happy to confirm that my instincts about our compatibility - in terms of music and personalities - were correct, as we became instant friends and natural, no-pretense musical partners on this duo project.- Laszlo Gardony
