On the new episode of The Jazz Session, Jason Crane interviews drummer Pete Zimmer. Zimmer moved to New York several years ago after graduating from the New England Conservatory. He's released three records on his own label, Tippin' Records, the most recent of which is his new CD, Judgment (Tippin' Records, 2006). The album features tenor saxophonists George Garzone and Joel Frahm.
I love jazz because it is simply a music of my heart since I was about 12 years old.
I was first exposed to jazz when I heard Sonny Boy Williamson play harmonica. My introduction to jazz went through blues music.
