Her new CD on Blue House Recordings, an associate label of Pacific Coast Jazz, is The Sky Could Send You (Pacific Coast Jazz 70001).

“This is one disc that permits the evening of jazz to flow with the respect it should... A romantic and warm addition to any moonlight coated rendezvous." Karl Stober-Ejazznews.com

“her evocative expressions and poetic lyricism envelop the listener in a warm cocoon of sound that you're sure to enjoy." -Paula Edelstein, All About Jazz

The Sky Could Send You is the third collaboration between Roberts and Harvie S, following their critically acclaimed recordings on the Brownstone label, Twilight World (1996) and Dreamsville (1998), which charted for seven weeks on the prestigious Gavin Report. S brings his mastery of jazz and Latin vocabulary to the helm of this new project, which is truly a musical voyage. “Via adventurous rhythms and vivid language, this record carries the listener through new places, cultures, and emotional landscapes," says Roberts. Drawing from a broad palette of instrumental and rhythmic colors, The Sky Could Send You features re-imagined jazz and Brazilian standards, original compositions by contemporary artists and unexpected covers of pop tunes such as Harry Belafonte's Jamaica Farewell. The jazz and world grooves provide a rich foundation for Roberts' liquid vocals and intimate lyric delivery. And the incredible talent who accompany Sherri on this recording are the best in their fields - Phil Woods and Lew Soloff.
