O’s Notes: The Art of Intimacy, Vol 1 is just that, featuring leader and producer Jeremy Pelt in a trio with George Cables on the keys and bassist Peter Washington. Jeremy has pristine tone on his trumpet. That’s entirely appropriate for these warm ballads. The absence of a drummer makes things even more intimate as does the chemistry between the musicians. Pelt chooses less traveled but appreciable standards and adds an original to make a strong point for Volume 2.
