A critically acclaimed and internationally recognized trumpet player and composer, JEREMY PELT confidently leads the Jeremy Pelt Quintet with his distinct and focused sound, instigating musical conversations that drive the music forward with intent and spirit. The New York Times calls him a “bandleader of the highest order” and a “fierce and winningly self-assured talent,” and Jeff Krow writes, “Pelt is at the peak of his powers with the power and range of Lee Morgan and Freddie Hubbard.” His latest group features an exciting collection of young talents, with VICTOR GOULD on piano, VICENTE ARCHER on bass, JONATHAN BARBER on drum set, and JACQUELENE ACEVEDO on percussion. The quintet has a unique chemistry that comes to life within each of Jeremy’s original compositions and an undeniable energy that excites and captivates audiences worldwide.
