Two nights at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola, NYC
Trumpeter and composer Jeremy Pelt is a veteran bandleader who releases top-notch albums with rare frequency. Pelt works expertly within multiple jazz traditions, but he also subtly experiments with the boundaries and nuances of those traditions from record to record, further developing his distinctive and gradually expanding musical vision. Tonight’s performance celebrates the release of Pelt’s latest album, Noir en Rouge (recorded live in Paris), featuring the same outstanding lineup heard on his previous record, Makes Noise!, just one year ago. The group plays a broad range of swinging, soulful jazz imbued with Afro-Latin influences, and this album release show is an easy recommendation for anyone into both classic and contemporary jazz.
