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's NPR radio show, Piano Jazz.

Victor L. Schermer spoke with Piket about her latest album, Sides, Colors (Thirteenth Note Records, 2011), and how women have finally managed to transcend the “old boys' club" mentality that was largely pervasive in jazz's first century. Read about this and more in his in-depth interview, Roberta Piket: Making a Difference, published today at All About Jazz.

You can also read what Victor has to say about Sides, Colors, in his insightful Extended Analysis, also published today.

All About Jazz is committed to bringing you the most extensive coverage on new releases anywhere, so be sure to check out all the buzz surrounding Roberta Piket and Sides, Colors today at All About Jazz!
