SOURCE: Published: 2011-02-28
Roberta Piket Roberta Piket is a jazz pianist, composer, and arranger with an exceptional range of expression. In the same tune or performance, she moves fluidly between bebop, hard bop, blues, soft and mellow, up-tempo, contrapuntal, and advanced harmonic motifs, making it all come together in meaningful, coherent statements of ideas and emotions. Truly a contemporary player, pushing the envelope, among her accomplishments are eight CDs as a leader, a vocal composition based on the poems of Vladimir Nabokov, performances at some of New York's and Europe's top venues, and three-time guest artist on Marian McPartland
