Newark Museum Jazz in the Garden: Jeremy Pelt – trumpeter
Newark Museum garden
49 Washington St, Newark, NJ
Haling from Los Angeles, Jeremy Pelt graduated from the Berklee School of Music and landed in New York City in 1988, where he was immediately noticed by leading musicians, which led to his gig with the Charles Mingus Big Band. Voted “Rising Star” five years in a row by Down Beat Magazine and the Jazz Journalist Association, Pelt’s performances garner rave reviews. Pelt has an unmistakable sound and plays with a forward momentum, strength and clarity. His band–featuring JD Allen, tenor sax; Danny Grissett, piano; Dwayne Burno, bass; Gerald Cleaver, drums–has a bright future with him at the helm.
