"Prime of Life, drummer Pete Zimmer's fifth recording as a leader, has a clean, crisp, soulful sound." ALLABOUTJAZZ.
COM, Dan McClenaghan
"Young Mr. Zimmer's a drummer worth discovering."HOT HOUSE
"Self-reliance has been Pete Zimmer's calling card since he relocated to New York City in 2001. And the same confidence and drive that impelled this fine drummer to establish his own label, produce his own albums, and supply the majority of his recorded repertoire also permeates "Prime of Life," Zimmer's fifth recording as a leader.
The album's title sets the tone of certainty. "My twenties were still about the learning process, gaining knowledge and experience. With age and practice, I feel that I have the skills and focus to steer my music in the direction it needs to go," says Zimmer, who was thirty-three at the time of the recording. "Now is just the beginning."" - Steve Futterman writes about jazz regularly for The New Yorker
