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!
