Jeremy Pelt stands as a strikingly unique musician, his work consistently sleek and polished yet bristling with the spirit of invention. A concise technician but also a charismatic improviser, Pelt flourishes in a lean, modernist language influenced by classic bebop phraseology. He delivers his lines with authority and economy, the pinpoint accuracy of his tone well-suited to the heightened elegance of his delivery. With Italian-born, New York-based pianist Simona Premazzi laying down the changes and Ben Allison's inventive bass lines, Jeremy is joined by the twin drums of Billy Drummond and Victor Lewis for an interesting session of originals, standards and music by Wayne Shorter and Clifford Jordan.
