”Roberta Piket is a gifted pianist and composer who leads one of the most accomplished and idiosyncratic piano trios in jazz…” -Tom Conrad, JazzTimes

“The jazz pianist Roberta Piket isn't a blusterer: each of her pieces seeks to solve a particular problem, and she's quietly been working on form and conceptual matters in the spirit of devoted explorers like Chick Corea and Richie Beirach.” -Ben Ratliff, New York Times

“Constantly curious, she has released a series of recordings probing across the landscape from retro��”mainstream to free jazz.” -Don Heckman, Los Angeles Times

A favorite of Marian McPartland, Piket is a deeply swinging, intelligent, two-fisted pianist. -Paul deBarros, Seattle Times
