Solo Piano

Roberta Piket Solo Jazz Piano

Solo (2012)

Emanation: Solo, Volume 2 (2015)

[On Enmanation] Piket does not waste her time or that of the listener by creating an album where she merely displays her formidable technique. Nor are there long tortuous passages; in their stead are well-defined melodies, intelligent harmonies and solos that build upon those harmonies and melodies in logical fashion. This is music that breathes, that reaches out for the heart and soul of the listener and, on occasion, for the dancing feet. “Emanation” …deserves your close attention.
Step Tempest, Richard B. Kamins
“Her touch is elegant, expressive and musical. Most important, there is an extraordinary emotional intensity that one rarely finds in today’s overloaded recording industry… truly an amazing creative and musical accomplishment… There are so many solo piano CDs coming out. Happily, this is one of the very best.”

– From the liner notes to Emanation: Solo, Volume 2 by Richie Beirach

“I get restless easily and I’m always looking for new challenges,” pianist Roberta Piket reflects about her decision to record, at this point in her career, a full-length solo album. A versatile musician, she’s played both straight-ahead jazz and free music. …So, for Roberta, a solo CD represents a new musical challenge, another fresh area of exploration, and the next step forward in her continuing growth as an artist.
