Description:
 The Jeremy Pelt Quintet-Free Concert: Jeremy Pelt arrived in New York in 1998 after graduating from Berklee College of Music. Once he got there, it wasn't long before he started being noticed by a lot of top musicians in the city. His first professional Jazz gig was playing with the Mingus Big Band. That gig lead to long lasting associations with many of the musicians in the band, and a great opportunity for growth.
Since his arrival, he has been fortunate enough to play with many of today's and yesterday's Jazz luminaries, such as Jimmy Heath, Frank Wess, Charli 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, Cedar Walton, and many, many more. In addition Jeremy has recorded ten well received albums as a leader since 2002; the most recent of which is 2012’s Soul.
After a reading of Pelt's biography and discography, it's easy to see why Pelt was voted Rising Star on the Trumpet two years in a row by Downbeat Magazine and the Jazz Journalist Association.
Jeremy is currently a featured performer in the Mingus Big Band, Ralph Peterson Quintet, Lewis Nash Ensemble, Cannonball Adderley Legacy Quintet featuring Louis Hayes, Vincent Herring, and the Frank Foster Loud Minority Big Band. Jeremy has toured the U.S., France, Spain, Amsterdam, Switzerland, Japan, Virgin Islands, Brazil, and Great Britain.
The Jeremy Pelt Quintet comprises Pelt, Roxy Coss on tenor and soprano sax, Frank LoCrasto on keyboards, Richie Goods on electric and acoustic bass and Dana Hawkins on drums.
