Thanks for this! I'm reminded of a quote from, I think, Ben Webster (did I hear it from you, or Howard on an LGM thread?)... he was playing (not in concert, just casually) some ballad. Then he stopped. He was asked why he stopped. "I forgot the rest of the words," was his reply. I think that goes along with Pelt's focus on melody.

Also, I understand someone like him going the independent route, but for people trying not to accumulate more objects, I wish there digital versions of his work available.
