These projects include performances and recordings with Cliff Barbaro, Keter Betts,
Bobby “Blue” Bland, Ravi Coltrane, Frank Foster, Winard Harper, Jimmy Heath, Vincent Herring, John Hicks, Charlie Persip, Ralph Peterson, Lonnie Plaxico, Bobby Short, Cedar Walton, Frank Wess, Nancy Wilson and The Skatalites, to name a few.

As a leader, Pelt has recorded ten albums and has toured globally with his various ensembles, appearing at many major jazz festivals and concert venues.

Pelt’s recordings and performances have earned him critical acclaim, both nationally and internationally. He has been featured in the Wall Street Journal by legendary jazz writer and producer, Nat Hentoff, and was voted Rising Star on the trumpet, five years in a row by Downbeat Magazine and the Jazz Journalist Association.

JACQUELENE ACEVEDO is a multi-percussionist based in New York City. She has been teaching since the age of 16. Trained in Theater, Dance, and Music, she is able to communicate to a wide variety of people and learning methods. This full spectrum of artistic mediums contributes to a fuller musical training experience for her students of percussion.

Ms. Acevedo has taught students ranging in age from 3 to 83. In addition to a full schedule of private and class teaching, Ms. Acevedo has been invited to a number of conventions. In 2012 she presented an educational clinic at Percussive Arts Society International Convention (PASIC) in Austin, Texas with Ndugu Chanceler (Michael Jackson, Miles Davis). The title of the clinic, The Art of Interaction between Drumset and Percussion, is also her area of specialty which she learned by playing with her father, drummer Memo Acevedo. Yukon jazz artist, piano teacher, percussion and composer/arranger Andrea McColeman studied with Memo!

Music is the fulfillment of BASSIST RICHIE GOODS’ destiny – it’s in his DNA. The youngest person ever inducted into the Pittsburgh Jazz Hall of Fame, bassist Richie Goods got an early start playing in church and clubs while still attending Pittsburgh Creative and Performing Arts High School.

After graduating from the prestigious jazz program at Berklee College of Music, Richie moved to New York City, where he studied under jazz legends Ron Carter and Ray Brown. Richie credits jazz luminary Mulgrew Miller for helping him hone his jazz skills early in his career. Richie toured and recorded with Mulgrew for nine years. That opportunity brought Richie to the attention of many in the jazz community and afforded him the opportunity to record and tour with a variety of jazz and popular artists ranging from the Headhunters, Lenny White, Louis Hayes and the Cannonball Adderley Legacy Band, Milt Jackson, Russell Malone, Vincent Herring, the Manhattan Transfer and Walter Beasley to Brian McKnight, DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince, Whitney Houston and Christina Aguilera.

Richie’s lengthy discography also includes Grammy award-winning and platinum albums of Alicia Keys and Common. Richie most recently toured with Grammy winning trumpeter, Chris Botti. When not on tour, he can be found in his Westchester, NY studio, producing records for his company, RichMan Music, Inc.

His first solo project with his fusion/funk band, “Richie Goods and Nuclear Fusion, Live at the Zinc Bar” and his latest release, “Three Rivers” received critical acclaim.  Richie is busier and more excited than ever, touring and working on a new recording which will feature more of his acoustic bass work.

DRUMMER JONATHAN BARBER, born in Hartford, CT, has been playing the drums since the age of 5. Jonathan was first introduced to the drums by his father and began nurturing his passion and talents at his family church. During his senior year of high school, Barber became a member of the Artists Collective in Hartford, CT founded by Jackie and Dollie McLean. There he studied with Master Artist, Renee Mclean, who introduced him to jazz, and its African roots and rhythms; it was at that point Jonathan knew he wanted to be a musician.

He furthered his studies at the University of Hartford, Hartt School of Music, Jackie McLean Institute of Jazz, where he graduated Cum Laude, receiving a B.A. in Music Performance (Jazz Studies). Wasting no time Jonathan became an on-demand drummer in the Hartford, CT Jazz scene, and began building his career in the New York jazz scene.

Jonathan has had the opportunity to perform with many artists such as, Jimmy Greene, Erykah Badu, Wallace Roney, Jeremy Pelt, Kenny Barron, John Patitucci, Kurt Elling, Terrace Martin, Charnett Moffett, Stanley Jordan, Harold Mabern, Steve Davis, Larry Willis, Abraham Burton and many more. Jonathan has been privileged to give back to his community and worked as a teacher at the Artists Collective, Litchfield Jazz Camp, University of Hartford (Hartt School) and the Greater Hartford Arts Academy.

He has been featured on recordings such as “Bloom” (2014, J.D. Allen), “ Grace” (2013, J.D. Allen), “ Collective Consciousness” (2014, Jovan Alexandre) “State of Emergency” (2012, Nat Reeves) and more. Since moving to New York, NY Jonathan has traveled and toured nationally and internationality, and performed in notable festivals and clubs. Currently, Jonathan Barber continues to tour and is now stepping out as a bandleader, performing in jazz clubs and festivals around the world, giving private lessons, and conducting workshops.

PIANIST VICTOR GOULD is quickly establishing himself as a musical force to be reckoned with, making waves in New York’s renowned jazz scene and across the globe.
