89.1 Jazz with Linda Yohn Linda Yohn Mar 13, 2013
9:00AM - 12:30PM
"This music isn't about a change in the direction as much as it's about strengthening my commitment to my art at present." - Jeremy Pelt. With “Water And Air”, trumpeter Jeremy Pelt re-affirms his dedication to modern black music. Over the years he has absorbed the foundations of jazz: call-and-response, pacing, drama, interplay and tension and release. It is especially that final principle that operates throughout “Air and Water”. The disc is beautifully sequenced from the rushing whirlwind of “Mystique” to the elegant waltz of “In Dreams”. The pointillistic pulse of “Prior Convictions” leads to a fresh and powerful reading of Stanley Clarke’s “Butterfly Dreams”, the date’s only cover. Pelt’s sympathetic support players include two contemporary keyboard masters well-versed in shading and dynamics: David Bryant and Frank LoCrasto. It was just perfect to premiere “Water And Earth” on this late winter morning. To complete our “89.1 Jazz” playlist, two fine female trumpet players were on the list for “Women’s History Month”: Bria Skonberg and Stacy Rowles. Their approaches were a fine foil for Jeremy Pelt.
