About Sides, Colors

Thirteenth Note Records is pleased to announce the March 2011 release of Roberta Piket's seventh CD, Sides, Colors. This ambitious release features intriguing arrangements for strings, reeds, brass, percussion and organ on several tracks to enhance the trio sound.

While Sides, Colors is not just another piano trio album, it is the trio of Roberta, bassist Johannes Weidenmueller and drummer Billy Mintz that is at the core of the CD. Even in the context of the larger ensemble pieces, their intuitive, conversational interplay is a joy to hear. The trio is the foundation for the sonic landscape that is Sides, Colors.

Other CD highlights include 'Degree Absolute,' with its piano/organ poly-rhythmic groove; a quirky, swinging trio take on Jule Styne's 'Make Someone Happy'; a haunting tone poem for four winds and piano entitled 'Empty House'; 'Relent,' a burning organ duo between Piket and Mintz; and 'My Friends and Neighbors,' an African American spiritual deconstructed into an Ivesian experiment in contrapuntalism. (The latter piece is dedicated to Sam Rivers, with whom Roberta was privileged to associate at the Atlantic Center for the Arts in 2006.)
