Jeremy Pelt Quintet to Perform in the Cole
Jazz ensemble The Jeremy Pelt Quintet will perform at the Cole Auditorium on Sunday, January 13 at 3:30 p.m. as part of the Peterson Concert Series.
Horn man Pelt graduated from the Berklee College of Music in 1998 and immediately made his way to New York City to immerse himself in the jazz life. His first professional gig was with the acclaimed Mingus Big Band and from there his career continued to climb.
Pelt has traveled the world and played with many of the luminaries of jazz, including Jimmy Heath, Frank Wess, Ravi Coltrane, Cliff Barbaro, Nancy Wilson and even the late, great Bobby Short among many others. Pelt, voted "Rising Star on the Trumpet" two years in a row by Downbeat Magazine and the Jazz Journalist Association, has recorded ten well-received albums as a leader since 2002. The most recent, this year's Soul, is available at Greenwich Library.
The Jeremy Pelt Quintet comprises Pelt on trumpet, Dwayne Burno on bass, Danny Grissett on piano, plus Lawrence Clark on sax and Jonathan Barber on drums.
The Peterson Concert Series is free and open to all through the support of the Peterson Foundation. Doors open at 3:00 p.m.; seating is limited and available on a first come, first served basis. For more information, please contact David Waring at (203) 622-7917.
