What The Critics Are Saying:
The best kept secret in straight ahead jazz circa 2006"
--All Music Guide
Judgment is packed with memorable pieces, including a pair of edgy, show-stopping duo numbers, with Garzone and Zimmer sparring like they'd been doing so forever ... Cut Off" is a Jazz Messenger-style tune featuring engaging turns by Frahm, trumpeter Michael Rodriguez, Dodo and Zimmer that leaves listeners wanting more"
Take note pronto of this young up-and-coming drummer/leader on his second disc. Rooted in hard bop, albeit shaded with modern harmonies, the quintet is winning while Zimmer's drumming boasts a crisp, swinging command with judicious musicality"
--Modern Drummer Magazine
A recent performance at Cecil's Jazz Club was even more impressive than the recordings"
