Jeremy Pelt – The Art of Intimacy, Vol 2: His Muse

Jeremy Pelt

Spring seems to be a prolific season for Jazz artist with new music. In celebration of the season, Trumpeter Jeremy Pelt’s brand-new release, The Art of Intimacy, Vol. 2: His Muse, (High Note Label) taps the full emotional swing of a love affair – joy to pain, and back again. Standouts include “Blues in Sophistication” and the Latin twist on Henry Mancini’s “Slow Hot Wind,” and the (Miles) Davis-like muted stillness of “There’ll Be Other Times.”

Over 20 year, Jeremy Pelt’s blazed his own path in music as an inventive artist and staunch advocate of Jazz. His sound ranges from brooding ballads, classic cool, and even fusion — all firmly rooted in Jazz. Pelt moves the genre forward while also keeping an ear for the past. As an author, he has published three volumes of Griot in which he interviews the legends of jazz to archive their wisdom for future generations.

“One of the things that I learned being on the bandstand with a lot of these people – these elders, these great musicians – is that you have to pay it forward. They got it from someplace, and they’re giving it to me, and it’s up to me to give to the next generation.”
