On his new album The Artist (February 2019) the famed American trumpeter/composer delves into the legacy of French sculptor Auguste Rodin. In the five-movement Rodin Suite he muses not only on works the artist left us, but how his art might have evolved if he were still with us today. His ensemble is capable of delicacy and color as well as full on contemporary jazz sounds.
Jeremy Pelt has become one of the preeminent trumpeters within the world of jazz, with a mighty sound that draws comparisons to legends such as Freddie Hubbard and Lee Morgan. Forging a bond with the Mingus Big Band very early on, as his career progressed, Pelt made his name in many other ensembles such as the Roy Hargrove Big Band and The Village Vanguard Orchestra. In his own bands he makes every style contemporary, from swing and bop to soul-and rock-infused jazz.
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
