Who is Jeremy Pelt? For the casual listener of jazz, a fair question. For the jazz cognoscenti, a very easy answer.
In the history of jazz, masters of the trumpet can be divided into eras. In the ’20s, Louis Armstrong and King Oliver were the standard bearers. In the ’30s and ’40s, Roy Eldridge, Harry “Sweets” Edison, Fats Navarro, and Charles “Cootie” Williams were the leaders. The late ’40s and early ’50s saw the rise of Clark Terry, Clifford Brown, Kenny Dorham, and Miles Davis as the true innovators. In the late ’50s and ’60s, there were Lee Morgan, Don Cherry, Freddie Hubbard, Donald Byrd and Booker Little, to carry the tradition forward. In the ’70s and early ’80s, there was Woody Shaw, Randy Brecker and Nat Adderly.
The late ‘80s and ’90s saw the rise of a host of new, innovative trumpeters including Wynton Marsalis, Nicholas Payton, Terrance Blanchard, Wallace Roney, Terrell Stafford, and Roy Hargrove. The new millennium witnessed the ascent of two major trumpet voices, inheritors of the jazz trumpet’s long tradition: Sean Jones, and the widely acknowledged leader of the trumpet movement today, Jeremy Pelt.
Jeremy Pelt, 33, grew up in Los Angeles, and attended Berklee School of Music. Upon graduation he moved to New York, and immediately began working with the Mingus Big Band. From there, he worked with a host of New York’s and the world’s finest musicians including (but not limited to) Jimmy Heath, Frank Wess, Charlie 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,and Cedar Walton.
He was named “Rising Star in Jazz” five consecutive years by Down Beat Magazine and the Jazz Journalist Association. He has nine albums to his credit; the most recent, The Talented Mr. Pelt, was released in August of this year.
The current touring group, The Jeremy Pelt Quintet, features the very best young musicians available today: J.D. Allen, Saxophone; Danny Grissett, Piano; Dwayne Burno, Bass; and Darrell Green, Drums. All stars in their own right.
