    Personnel: Cody Moffet (drums), Kenny Garrett (alto saxophone), Ravi Coltrane, Antoine Roney (tenor saxophones), Wallace Roney (trumpet), Kenny Drew, Jr. (piano), Charnett Moffett (acoustic bass).
    Recorded at Clinton Recording Studios, New York, from March 24-25, 1993.
    On his debut effort Evidence, Cody Moffett is supported by his brother Charnett Moffett, Ravi Coltrane, Kenny Drew, Jr., and brothers Antoine and Wallace Roney for run-throughs of mostly standards. While each of these players is accomplished, their abilities are, at times, covered up by Cody Moffett's over-drumming. Because of this, he sounds like he was trying too hard to prove his status among the elite of jazz drummers. There's no doubt Moffett is fine behind the trap set, but Evidence leaves the listener wishing he had focused more on the material and less on showing off his chops. All of that said, there are some nice performances on the album where Moffett plays with the band instead of over them, as in the nice reading of John Coltrane's "Equinox" and the lovely ballad "Beautiful Love"." ~ Gregory McIntosh
