Jeremy Pelt

"If history is kind and honest it will remember this Jeremy Pelt Quintet and its collective members as one of the most important and creative bands to emerge in jazz since Miles' mid-60s group. A great recording by a band that is THAT good!" Tony Hall, Jazzwise

Heralded for years as one of the "rising stars" in jazz, Jeremy Pelt has earned accolades for his staggering virtuosity, which has elicited comparisons to trumpet icons like Clifford Brown, Lee Morgan and Freddie Hubbard, as well as for his studious, cerebral approach to the music. While he's clearly the man in charge here, SOUL is very much a band-focused release, with all five members of the group heard distinctively and insistently throughout. Pelt's group is that rarest of all things in jazz, a working band, and the familiarity and instant communication that come from extensive time spent playing together is evident.
