The accolades are universal!

For the third consecutive year, Jeremy topped the DownBeat Magazine Annual 
Critic's Poll for "Rising Star Trumpeter," and for the second consecutive year, 
he was nominated for "Jazz Artist of the Year" in the same poll.  

In addition, The Jazz Journalist's Association selected Pelt as the 2005 
"Rising Star Artist of the Year".  

Jeremy has enjoyed feature articles and has been reviewed in The New York 
Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times, The Los Angeles Weekly, 
JazzWise, The Guardian, The Evening Standard, Jazz Times, All About Jazz, 
Recensioni, JazzIt etc. 

Pelt has garnered considerable praise for his recent MaxJazz cd, "Identity."  
 In addition, during his week-long engagements as a leader, Pelt regularly 
enjoyed standing room only crowds at his favorite jazz clubs.  Those include the 
legendary venues: Ronnie Scott’s in London (capacity 350), Yoshi's in San 
Francisco (capacity 300)  and The Village Vanguard (capacity 125) in New York 
City.  What was special about these performances was the generational mix of the 

The performances satisfied both jazz purists as well as younger audiences.  
Pelt’s quartet played original compositions--including a few that dealt with 
pushing the envelope of jazz (without diluting it), while adding some elements 
of electronic music. As is the case with his other groups, Jeremy is more 
interested in attaining a discernible group sound all their own. 

The music on “Identity” is heavily influenced by such jazz greats as late ‘60
’s Miles, Wayne Shorter, and Herbie Hancock. Aside from the jazz influence, 
the music also draws inspiration from the great Rock bands such as Sly and the 
Family Stone, Jimi Hendrix and Cream to current Rock bands like Radiohead and 
Portishead. Jeremy’s own trumpet sound owes a lot to the likes of Freddie 
Hubbard, Miles Davis, Booker Little and Eddie Henderson

Pelt’s current MaxJazz CD "Identity" will be available at the club and is 
also in stores and online now!
