Vermont Jazz Center LIVE STREAM: JEREMY PELT, March 20 @ 8:00 PM


“Pelt is a technical marvel. He executes intricate solos with ease, plays gorgeous ballads in a tasteful manner, and never lacks flair or sensitivity.” —Ron Wynn, Jazz Times
 
The pieces included in this performance are from Jeremy Pelt’s new record: Griot, This is Important. The musical compositions were inspired by conversations with other jazz luminaries, short sections of which will be interspersed throughout the concert. 

Pelt’s website says: “It is only natural that Jeremy Pelt's voracious curiosity would lead him to investigate the West African Griot tradition where stories, reminiscences and accomplishments from times past are handed down as oral histories.”
