Jeremy Pelt arrived in New York in 1998 after graduating
from Berklee College of Music. Once he got there, it wasn't
long before he started being noticed by a lot of top
musicians in the city. His first professional Jazz gig was
playing with the Mingus Big Band. That gig lead to many long
lasting associations with many of the talent in the band, and
a great opportunity for growth.
Since his arrival, he has been fortunate enough to play with
many of today's and yesterday's Jazz luminaries, such as
Jimmy Heath, Frank Wess, Charli Persip, Keter Betts,
Frank Foster, John Hicks, Ravi Coltrane, Winard Harper,
Vincent Herring, Ralph Peterson, Lonnie Plaxico, Cliff
Barbaro, Nancy Wilson, Bobby Short, Bobby "Blue" Bland,
The Skatalites, Cedar Walton, and many, many more.
Jeremy has also been featured in a variety of different
bands, including the Roy Hargrove Big Band, The Village
Vanguard Orchestra, the Duke Ellington Big Band.
Currently, he is member of the Lewis Nash Septet, and The
Cannonball Adderley Legacy Band featuring Louis Hayes.
Pelt...maintains a consistent forward momentum.
