The band follows him into the zone. Taylor Eigisti has a McCoy influence that he wears well and makes his own place in it. The rhythm team of John Shifflett, bass, and Alan Hall, drums, get things burning with drive and finesse.
Zinn gives us seven strong originals and a version of Carmichael's evergreen "Stardust" that will give you pause.
Everything is the real thing and there's no nothing going on, so I found myself saying to myself, "yeah!" every so often. It's modern but it has deep roots. And Zinn can bring it on!
