Progressive Pianist Roberta Piket Plays Jazz and Improvised Music Out of New York – – – – DownBeat Critics Poll Winner- – – – – Female Jazz Pianist
Belogenis, Piket, Mintz
Drawing upon musics from diverse traditions, the trio of Louie Belogenis (saxophones), Roberta Piket (piano), and Billy Mintz (drums) seamlessly weaves ideas together as if performing a sacred ceremony, while at other times reflecting the overwhelming abundance of everyday life. Having played together for almost a decade, they have forged a unique language of their own based on their deep immersion in music and their trust in one another. With no pre-existing structures or ideas, their willingness to listen deeply to each other results in a highly structured interplay that can best be described as improvised chamber music.
“An avant-garde saxophonist with a gift for deep, burnished lyricism, Louie Belogenis performs alongside pianist Roberta Piket and drummer Billy Mintz, frequent collaborators whose performances gracefully obscure the distinction between so-called straight-ahead jazz and more abstract styles.”
