Jeremy Pelt

Giveaway: Jeremy Pelt Quintet

Win tickets to Jeremy Pelt Quintet on Monday, Nov. 27 at Kuumbwa.


Trumpeter Jeremy Pelt picked up the trumpet early, and by high school he had a keen interest in jazz. The Berklee College of Music grad went on to play with the Mingus Big Band after college, and has since worked with an impressive roster of artists, including Nancy Wilson, the Skatalites and Bobby Blue Bland. Named a Downbeat “rising star” five consecutive years, Pelt has been described as a “technical marvel” who “never lacks for flair or sensitivity.” His latest release, this year’s Make Noise!, blends the classic jazz foundation he laid in his early years with a contemporary approach to harmony and collaboration.
