Most widely held works by Gerald Cleaver
Soul by Jeremy Pelt( Recording )

4 editions published in 2012 in 3 languages and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Heralded for years as one of the "rising stars" in jazz, Jeremy Pelt has earned accolades for his staggering virtuosity, which has elicited comparisons to trumpet icons like Clifford Brown, Lee Morgan and Freddie Hubbard, as well as for his studious, cerebral approach to the music. While he's clearly the man in charge here, SOUL is very much a band-focused release, with all five members of the group heard distinctively and insistently throughout

Chants by Craig Taborn Trio( Recording )

2 editions published in 2013 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recently hailed by DownBeat as one of the visionaries of the current wave, Craig Taborn has a unique perspective on creative music-making. Just as Avenging Angel subverted expectations of solo improvised piano, so does Chants find its own response to the vast tradition of the piano trios. The pieces that he has been writing for the band in the 8 years of its existence are set up to generate a new group music by channeling the special skills of drummer Gerald Cleaver and bassist Thomas Morgan
The rub and spare change by Michael Formanek( Recording )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Triptych by Lotte Anker( )

5 editions published in 2005 in 3 languages and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

November by Jeremy Pelt( Recording )

5 editions published in 2008 in Undetermined and No Linguistic content and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bereits die 6. Platte des noch recht jungen Trompeters, der mit so legendären Namen wie Lee Morgan oder Freddie Hubbard in einem Atemzug genannt wird. Sein Können steht außer Frage und wird von renommierten Jazzmusikern hoch geschätzt. Vom Downbeat-Magazin und von der Jazz Journalist Association wurde er in 2 aufeinanderfolgenden Jahren zum 'Rising Star on the Trumpet' gewählt. "His performances have received rave reviews from publications around the world ... 'November' is a fully realized post-bop suite, a jazz 'Also Sprach Zarathustra' ... Pelt's compositions are all tightly angular and anxious, both probing and airy. His trumpet is tart and sweet, the tone very much his own. The choice of JD Allen on tenor saxophone was a deeply thoughtful one as Allen is one of the finest post bop tenor's performing. As a collection, 'November' is a compelling listening experience from beginning to end" (www.allaboutjazz.com)
