Sorceress

Sorceress is a swinging, modern straight-ahead jazz quartet led by Roberta Piket. Sorceress’ draw its personnel from New York’s most interesting women jazz musicians. 

Says Piket, “So many great women musicians deserved wider recognition, and I want to have the opportunity to play with them.  So I decided to start a band inspired by and featuring some of the women in jazz whom I am grateful to call my friends and colleagues.” 

Sorceress features music from great modern jazz composers such as Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea  Kenny Wheeler. The band also performs original compositions. 

Sorceress performed its first show shortly before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. The band is looking forward to performing more frequently now that live music opportunities are returning to the New York area. Sorceress is also considering  touring.
