... a N’awlins-flavored trio that likes to play like they put the easy in the Big Easy. A great after hours set to blow off steam, for both listener and player, this is a mighty good time for those whose ears are still open enough they can enjoy things without being told it’s the thing to like. Fun throughout. ~Chris Spector. Midwest Record 

I believe that I have been transported to New Orleans! A better time in the spirit of The Crescent City cannot be had! This 10-song collection is the new Jack’s Waterfall release that pays deference to the New Orleans piano and blues traditions, of which the city is mightily known for. All cuts are originals. This fine assemblage includes piano funk, early period ragtime, and blues. The trio is comprised of Jack Licitra handling piano and vocals, Marc Carpentieri providing percussion work, and Trifon Dmitrov on the bass. The group has a pedigree that has had them open shows for the likes of Pinetop Perkins and Henry Butler. These show opening opportunities have provided impetus for the fine piano excursions found here; each selection mines a different segment of the New Orleans piano history and influence. If you know that familiar New Orleans sound, and prefer its rhythmic ventures combined with the rich piano heritage of the city, these tunes will sate your appetite. Enjoy!  ~Curt’s Blues

American Roots Project (ARP) is a new Jack’s Waterfall release paying homage to the blues and New Orleans piano tradition. It features ten original songs ranging from the piano funk of “My Baby’s Gone a Long time” to early ragtime of “Jack’s Rag.” The project was co-produced by veteran sound engineer Brian Unger and grammy-nominated Mark Carpentieri. ARP features the tight trio of Jack Licitra on piano and vocals, Carpentieri on drums and bassist Trifon Dmitrov.
