Jeremy Pelt: Water and Earth (the new album)

This is one artist that I will often come back to. It seems like every time I check back on Pelt’s website, he has a new album coming out and his studio videos are a goldmine for any aspiring artist, whether jazz or any other genre for that matter. Usually, listening to musicians speak or try to voice their art is a cringing experience but watching their process and sometimes listening to their take on an experience can be a very enlightening window. Not to mention, its clear that Pelt’s recordings are the result of introspection and planning. Lastly, I’m very excited to see him reunite with drummer Dana Hawkins who brings such a youthful confidence and virtuosity to the table.
