Pipe Dream is an international band featuring four of the most interesting personalities in the new italian creative scene and american cellist Hank Roberts.
Over his nearly four-decade career, Hank Roberts has forged a compelling original voice on the cello, encompassing abstract improvisation and soulful folk melodies, intricate new-music compositions and vigorous rock songs. Born in Terre Haute, Indiana, Roberts made his name on the legendary Downtown scene in 1980s New York. Faced with a dearth of mentors or peers on his instrument, he carved his own path through that fertile ground alongside such frequent collaborators as Bill Frisell, Tim Berne, Marc Ribot and John Zorn.
The five musicians stretch among chamber music, african echoes, new music and american folk-rock, shaped in their own unique sound as a band.
Their first eponymus album ‘Pipe Dream’ will be released on September 7th, 2018 for Cam Jazz. Pre-order here or through the form at the bottom.
