On Friday, May 10th, Firehouse 12 is pleased to welcome trumpeter Jeremy Pelt to celebrate his new album Water and Earth released earlier this year on High Note Records. The album and his new band pushes towards more electric and electronic textures.

Pelt has been called "a technical marvel. He executes intricate solos with ease, plays gorgeous ballads in a tasteful manner, and never lacks flair or sensitivity (Ron Wynn, JazzTimes). "Pelt pushes the brass envelope as much as possible and can engage a listener quite well" (Matt Collar, All Music Guide). Pelt "is a respectful guardian of the jazz tradition and a blossoming composer in his own right" (Ralph Mirello, Notes on Jazz).

Pelt graduated from the Berklee College of Music in 2002 and steadily built a career based on a stream of almost yearly recordings and collaborations with leading figures in improvised music. Pelt frequently performs in notable ensembles like the Roy Hargrove Big Band, The Village Vanguard Orchestra, and the Lewis Nash Septet. Pelt was voted as a Rising Star on trumpet for five years in a row by Downbeat Magazine and the Jazz Journalist Association. He currently records for the High Note record label.
