Acclaimed jazz musician to play Cole Auditorium on Sunday

Town native and jazz extraordinaire Jeremy Pelt is set to perform with his ensemble, The Jeremy Pelt Quintet, in the Cole Auditorium at Greenwich Library this Sunday, Jan. 13, as part of the Peterson Concert Series.

A trumpet player, Mr. Pelt graduated from the Berklee College of Music in 1998 and immediately made his way to New York City to immerse himself in the jazz life. His first professional gig was with the acclaimed Mingus Big Band and from there his career continued to climb.

Mr. Pelt has traveled the world and played with many of the luminaries of jazz, including Jimmy Heath, Frank Wess, Ravi Coltrane, Cliff Barbaro, Nancy Wilson and even the late Bobby Short, among many others. Mr. Pelt, voted “Rising Star on the Trumpet” two years in a row by Downbeat Magazine and the Jazz Journalist Association, has recorded 10 well-received albums since 2002. The most recent, this year’s Soul, is available at Greenwich Library.

The Jeremy Pelt Quintet comprises Mr. Pelt on trumpet, Dwayne Burno on bass, Danny Grissett on piano, Lawrence Clark on sax and Jonathan Barber on drums.

The Peterson Concert Series is free and open to all through the support of the Peterson Foundation. Doors open at 3 p.m. Seating is limited and available on a first come, first served basis.
