About This Event
Roberta Piket-piano, Vince Thiefain-bass, Sheila Earley-drums
Downbeat Critics Poll Rising Star winner Roberta Piket makes her first appearance at the Nash, accompanied by local greats Vince Thiefain and Sheila Earley. Roberta is a forward-thinking modernist who is also deeply rooted in the jazz tradition. A self-described “closet singer,“ Roberta will bring some of her vocal arrangements to the bandstand as well.
This special one-night-only event finds Roberta on her way back to her native New York after playing the Telluride Festival with bassist Rufus Reid’s quartet. Roberta also performs regularly with jazz drummer Victor Jones and with her husband, the drummer Billy Mintz. Roberta, Billy and bassist Harvie S have a new trio CD out in August on the Sunnyside label called, “You’ve Been Warned.“ robertajazz.com (Photography by John Abbott)
