On Wednesday, October 20 at 7 pm, guest performer Roberta Piket and her band will be making an appearance at Saddleback.
This remarkable trio will play an eclectic mix of standard arrangements and idiosyncratic originals. Pianist Roberta Piket and drummer Billy Mintz have played together consistently process both as individual artists and as a group.
Pianist/composer Roberta Piket is from Queens, NY. Roberta’s trio has toured Japan and Spain as well as the U.S. She has performed her music at the Kennedy Center (Washington, D.C.), at the Earshot Festival (Seattle), at the Rochester (NY) Jazz Festival, and in New York at Small’s, the Blue Note, Birdland, and Dizzy’s at Jazz at Lincoln Center.
In recent years, Roberta has become one of the few musicians in New York who is respected for both her swinging and inventive straight-ahead jazz playing as well as her powerful and sensitive work in creative improvised music.
For Roberta, there are no genre boundaries, only good music to be made. Looking forward to her performance at Saddleback College, with a post on her blog,
Roberta Piket said, “I’m looking forward to playing with the Trio in Los Angeles, South Pasadena, Santa Barbara, Mission Viejo… I’ll be blogging the tour and posting some pictures of the music and, of course, the food.”
