Jeremy Pelt: The Art of Intimacy, Vol. 2/His Muse

Read "The Art of Intimacy, Vol. 2/His Muse" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Strangely enough, the strings are nowhere listed on the album jacket, nor are Pelt's colleagues in his quartet. One has to read an accompanying press release from ...

Jeremy Pelt: Soundtrack

Read "Soundtrack" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Although Soundtrack is the name of trumpeter Jeremy Pelt's latest album (more about that in a moment), there is another selection that more readily summarizes Pelt's lyric philosophy: “I Love Music." And while there is ample contrast, camaraderie and color on the album, there is no doubt that Pelt's clear and creative commentaries are the focal ...
