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

“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
