Synopsis

Amazon.com
California-based guitarist Rusty Zinn's second album is characterized by the youthful exuberance that's a feature of the current generation of contemporary blues players. Zinn did time in harmonica player Mark Hummel's band, and it shows; most of the album has the same kind of West Coast feel. A notable exception is the closing track, "Come Get These Blues Up Off Me," which, despite the electric guitar, has a slower, more relaxed feel. The rest of the material is tighter and punchier, with a beat that'll set toes tapping. --Genevieve Williams

CD Reviews

Major blues star in the making
07/18/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

""Confessin'" shows that Rusty Zinn is more than just a terrific guitarist - he's also a great singer/songwriter. I've been a fan for some time now, since first hearing his work with Kim Wilson, and this album is a signigicant step forward: the playing is as strong as ever and his ability to work a song vocally has improved a lot. The only reason I didn't rate this album 5-stars is that I expect even better things from him in the future, and wanted to give him something to aim for :-) He's out touring behind this album, and I urge you to try to see him if possible. He's a laid back, low key performer, perfect in a small venue, and the band just cooks! Plus, he's a genuinely nice guy. Buy this album: if you like blues and tasty guitar work (a la Junior Watson, Kid Ramos, Duke Robillard), you're sure to like it."

"Zinn is in my opinion one of the very best blues artists around. His guitarplaying is fat and tasty, his vocals are the best I ever heard from a white blues guy playing this kind of music... I think this is a little step forward , because his first cd was already very good...."
