About Jeremy Pelt

A firebrand trumpeter with a warm tone and deft improvisational style, Jeremy Pelt balances his deep grasp of the jazz tradition with a searching brand of post-bop. Initially rising to prominence in the early 2000s, Pelt drew praise and earned comparisons to icons Freddie Hubbard and Lee Morgan with a handful of straight-ahead acoustic dates, including 2002's Profile and 2008's November. Over the years, he has matured into a richly nuanced performer with an aesthetic that draws liberally from 1970s fusion, funk, and Latin influences, as on 2013's Water and Earth and 2014's Face Forward, Jeremy, as well as his own refined modern jazz sensibilities, as on 2016's #Jiveculture, 2021's Griot: This Is Important!, and 2022's Soundtrack. Still, standards and ballads remain a core aspect of his work, as with his ongoing series The Art of Intimacy, Vol. 1 and The Art of Intimacy, Vol. 2: His Muse.
