Judgment marks the third album by drummer Pete Zimmer and his quintet. This album, along with their two previous releases, distinguishes the Pete Zimmer Quintet as one of the premier upcoming straight ahead jazz groups of the early 21st century. Since the release of their debut CD, Common Man, in September of 2004, which was called an impressive debut" by the Philadelphia Daily News, they have been captivating audiences with their hard swing and moving melodies as they keep busy performing at some of the most prestigious jazz venues along the East Coast and Midwest. Zimmer's second album, Burnin' Live at the Jazz Standard, was recorded live at Manhattan's Jazz Standard on February 7, 2006. All Music Guide has recently stated that they could be the best kept secret in straight ahead jazz circa 2006." 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." --Downbeat Magazine
