2011 has started on the right foot in jazz music with the highly anticipated release of trumpeter Jeremy Pelt’s latest HighNote Records release “The Talented Mr. Pelt.” Pelt’s disc returns to the days of old with the classic sounding Miles Davis and Freddie Hubbard records from the 1960‘s. Pelt’s second disc features JD Allen on sax, Danny Grissett on piano, Dwayne Burno on Bass, and Gerald Cleaver on drums. The disc is a continuation of his last two discs “Men of Honor” and “November.” Tracks like “Pandora’s Box” and “When The Time Is Right” take listeners back to those classic and warm records made by legendary musicians like Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter on Blue Note Records during the early 1960‘s. This is also due to the fact it was mixed, mastered, and recorded by famed producer and engineer Rudy Van Gelder. Pelt’s current band have been part of his unit for the last 4 years.
Pelt was born on November 4, 1976 in Los Angeles, California. He began playing the trumpet while in elementary school. Although he took up classical music, it wasn’t until high school where he started playing jazz. He attended Berklee College of Music where he majored in film scoring.
In addition to Jeremy being a well versed musician, he also plays in the Cannonball Adderley Legacy Band featuring Louis Hayes on drums, the Frank Foster Loud Minority Big Band, the Louis Nash Ensemble, and the Mingus Big Band.
Jeremy Pelt’s latest disc “The Talented Mr. Pelt” is on the HighNote label. For upcoming tour dates and info, visit him on the web at jeremypelt.net.
