O’s Notes: This is drummer Pete Zimmer’s third release. It is on his own label, Tippin, which he formed to get his product on the market. He’s continues to improve with each release and Judgment is a very good album blending burners like “Down or Up” with mellow tunes like “To My Papa”. Pete enlisted the support of one of his mentors, tenor sax player George Garzone. George not only adds brass but also penned several of the tunes. John Sullivan (b), David Wong (b), Toru Dodo (p), Michael Rodriguez (t) and Joe Frahm (ts) make up the rest of the band. They are a well-balanced unit sticking together across all tempos. Stay tuned to Zimmer. He’s got a lot to say.
