Montana Wild Cats

The new CD featuring trumpet legend Jack Walrath, famed pianist extraordinaire Philip Aaberg and yours truly Kelly Roberti is out on the Sweetgrass Music label and not to be missed. Please pick up a copy today

Being the youngest of the MONTANA WILD CATS, I have held Jack and Phil in the highest regard since I was a young man and really never envisioned this fusion of pure Montana until a few years ago. In their entirely different directions, they both enlivened and enriched my imagined reality of obtaining and sustaining a creative artistic and musical life. This project, surprising as it is, means so very much to me. Welcome to our Montana landscape, with its bounty of beauty, with its songs in the wind, with its isolation appreciated and its majestic magnetism undeniably present. I am honored to be a part of this music and honored to be a Montanan.
-Kelly Roberti
