Jeremy Pelt - american jazz trumpeter - GAM Music



Jeremy Pelt has become one of the preeminent young trumpeters within the world of jazz.

Forging a bond with the Mingus Big Band very early on, American jazz trumpeter extraordinaire Jeremy Pelt has collaborated with some of the genre’s greatest masters. These projects include performances and recordings with Ravi Coltrane, Frank Foster, Winard Harper, Jimmy Heath, Vincent Herring, John Hicks, Greg Osby, Cassandra Wilson, Ralph Peterson, Lonnie Plaxico, Cedar Walton, Frank Wess, Nancy Wilson, to name a few.

Pelt frequently performs alongside such notable ensembles as the Roy Hargrove Big Band, The Village Vanguard Orchestra and the Duke Ellington Big Band, and is a member of the Lewis Nash Septet and The Cannonball Adderley Legacy Band featuring Louis Hayes. As a leader, Pelt has recorded ten albums and has toured globally with his various ensembles, appearing at many major jazz festivals and concert venues.Pelt’s recordings and performances have earned him critical acclaim, both nationally and internationally. He has been featured in the Wall Street Journal by legendary jazz writer and producer, Nat Hentoff, and was voted Rising Star on the trumpet, five years in a row by Downbeat Magazine and the Jazz Journalist Association.

A quintet album, Griot: This Is Important!, arrived in early 2021 and found the trumpeter’s group solidified around vibraphonist Lu, pianist Gould, bassist Archer, and drummer Allan Mednard. It was released in conjunction with Pelt’s book of jazz interviews, Griot: Examining the Lives of Jazz’s Great Storytellers. The same quintet was showcased a year later on Soundtrack. The orchestral-tinged The Art of Intimacy, Vol. 2: His Muse arrived in 2023.
In 2023, Jeremy Pelt was awarded the “Jazz Trumpeter of the Year” award by the American Jazz Journalist Association (JJAJAZZAWARDS.ORG)
