Men of Honor

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Arwulf Arwulf
Cut in August 2009, Men of Honor initiated California-born trumpeter Jeremy Pelt's involvement with Joe Fields' New York-based HighNote record label. For this auspicious debut, Pelt teamed up with Los Angeles pianist Danny Grissett, Philadelphian bassist Dwayne Burno, and two of Detroit's finest exponents: tenor saxophonist J.D.

Men of Honor consists of a set of eight original compositions that brings to mind the coolly creative, mainstream, pre-electric works of Lee Morgan, Freddie Hubbard, and Miles Davis. It is a deliberately drawn salute to certain musical traditions established in the late '50s and early '60s which have endured and been extended by young artists enraptured by the harmonic poetics of early modern jazz.

This thoughtful, well-crafted music is recommended for relaxation on a foggy day, or intuitive navigation after dark.
