For the second part of our Hanksgiving tribute to Hank Roberts [click here for the first part] we focus on a number of other projects he is the leader of, including yet unreleased material of his current sextet. This segment also spotlights his work as a member of 858 Strings, the string section he shares with Jenny Scheinman and Eyvind Kang which is featured on a number of projects by Bill Frisell, as well as his Italian adventures with Pipe Dream and trombonist Filippo Vignato.
To complete this overview of Robert's discography during this segment we also feature a number of projects he has recorded with Tim Berne as well as with other luminaries of the New York scene like Marty Erlich or Ralph Alessi as well as collaborations with singers.
Hank in there! Happy Hanksgiving!
