Jeremy Pelt: Profile

Jim Santella By

Sign in to view read count
His original compositions flow from jazz's straight-ahead tradition. His sextet is keeping the flame alive through solid teamwork and gentle exploration. Their blend treats each instrumental voice equally, but highlights the drummer just a little more than the others. And why not? Ralph Peterson does a superb job of knitting them into one well-composed unit.

Trumpeter Jeremy Pelt hails from Los Angeles. After graduating from Boston's Berklee College of Music in 1988, he moved to New York and has paid his dues with several mainstream organizations. Now, his recording debut offers a larger audience the opportunity to hear this rising star. With his clarion tone and persuasive technique, Pelt rides a creative wave of straight-ahead dreams. Ballads and up-tempo romps take on his personal attitude. Passion and energy build his performance. Undoubtedly, Miles and Freddie and Chet and Booker and Lee came from the same roots as young Jeremy Pelt. It's all from the heart. On top of that, he's surrounded himself with a winning team. This year's top ten list wouldn't be complete without Profile. Tune in as soon as you can.
