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.
Jazz is a continuing revelation. The best show I ever attended was the
Roots Picnic at Penn's Landing in Philadelphia, or was it Robert
Glasper's Experiment at Lincoln Center, or was it Chick Corea with
Brian Blade at Oberlin College? Most of all I enjoy playing guitar and
composing beats with my Brooklyn-based group Space Captain.
