ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Pianist/composer Roberta Piket now manifests her unique musical viewpoint via an exciting electric recording. Exploring a new sonic palette with a vintage Wurlitzer electric piano and some tastefully chosen effects pedals, Roberta brings her harmonically adventurous sensibility and serpentine lines to a supremely grooving and interactive quartet.


"If you've ever felt like breaking out of the maze and doing something truly bold, this release should provide the perfect inspiration. Throw off the restraints of your life jacket now and prepare for a jolt." -F5, Wichita, KS


When Alternating Current debuted in live performance three years ago, New York's Village Voice proclaimed, "Sitting at a Wurlitzer, the leader's wily tunes and unpredictable runs have a unique new tone. Blended with guitarist Bruce Arnold's sweet rumble, the music boasts a retro-futurist vibe." The quartet's new CD is entitled 'I'm Back In Therapy And It's All Your Fault'. "It's somewhat tongue-in-cheek; this is clearly not a 'straight-ahead' jazz record," says Piket, who is primarily known for her progressive and swinging modern acoustic piano trio work.


"A sense of discovery abounds, as Piket indulges in fusion, hard bop, and spacious jams laden with reverb-drenched effects." - Billboard


The band features Bruce Arnold on guitar, marking the first time Roberta is leading a band with another harmony instrument. Comments Piket, "In the past, I've eschewed guitar because I felt it got in the way of the chords I wanted to play. But Bruce and I have a similar sensibility - we both like weird, chromatic harmonies, and we listen to each other, so instead of clashing, the guitar and electric piano actually mesh very well." Also featured are Steve Lucas on electric basses (another turning point for Roberta, who had always favored acoustic bass until the technical demands of the music made the switch inevitable) and Kirk Driscoll on drums.
