We are lucky to have clients and friends passing through the Harrelson Shop on a fairly regular basis... but in recent months I think this is the visit I am most excited about...
Jeremy Pelt, will be in town for the Trumpet Summit at The Dakota Jazz Club on Wednesday, September 11th... there are two shows that night (7pm and 9pm... the Harrelson Crew will be down in the front at the 9pm show) and the Summit features: Jeremy Pelt, Randy Brecker, Dr. Eddie Henderson and Leon Jordan Jr. It promises to be quite a night and we are all very excited about it... I have had Jeremy belting from my computer all week long while working on bits and pieces of this post and I will admit I have been really doing my researach... I started with his album Soul ... I have probably listened to it about 3 times a day all week... and today... after watching the above video... I moved on to his newest album Water & Earth he's right it really is different... to me it feels like it comes from somewhere bigger... maybe all the world travel is expanding Jeremy both mentally and musically... I know it has that effect on me... even though I don't play the trumpet :)
I have also watched a lot of Pelt videos this week... a few interview pieces... and a lot of live performance... and I just like what he has to say... not only when he plays... Here is a link to his website if you'd like to start a little research of your own... http://jeremypelt.net/home.html
Jeremy plays on two Harrelson Trumpets.... A Summit (w/ a #7 Bell) and a Summit Midnight in Black Lacquer (w/ a #8 Bell)...
