BRATTLEBORO — Trumpeter Jeremy Pelt will perform with his quintet via livestream hosted by the Vermont Jazz Center.
At 8 p.m. Saturday, Pelt will perform music from his most recent album, “Griot, This is Important!” with Chien Chien Lu (vibraphone), Victor Gould (piano), Vicente Archer (acoustic bass) and Allan Mednard (drums).
Pelt has been compared to Freddie Hubbard, Lee Morgan, Woody Shaw and Miles Davis.
For his newest project, Pelt has turned to the spoken word for inspiration, and this material provides the repertoire for his upcoming livestream. The inspirational fodder for the compositions of this project are three dozen interviews Pelt conducted, recorded and made into a book with his mentors and peers.
Livestreaming for this event is cost-free and open to the public, but donations to the Vermont Jazz Center will be accepted. Admission to in-person concerts is usually offered on a sliding fee scale from $20 to $40 per person.
