O’s Notes: Trumpeter Jeremy Pelt presents a hard bop groove that pops from the opener “Baswald’s Place”. #’Jiveculture goes beyond burners including several warm ballads like “A Love Like Ours”. Pelt’s quartet is a well-respected band with bassist Ron Carter, pianist Danny Grissett and Billy Drummond keeping time on drums. The title gave us anticipation of more urban grooves but this is mostly straight ahead jazz with five of the eight compositions exploring new territory. These were Jeremy’s originals and ultimately the set melded as a pleasurable listening experience, nothing less than we’d expect from this talented team.
