REVIEWS

• “Seldom do artists come along with a debut solo album one year, follow that up with the sophomore release less than two years later, and both turn out to be wonderful and filled to the brim with well-produced, well-conceived tracks. Seldom will I go out on a limb and proclaim that such an artist will be among the elite artists in no time flat.” – Ronald Jackson – The Smooth Jazz Ride      
• “Trumpeter Rob Zinn has a knack for composing songs with infectious melodies. His debut project is engaging and it was a pleasure to be a part of it!” – Gerald Veasley      
• “…contemporary jazz filled with real musicians, playing music that’s honest and not afraid to step out of the box… and yet maintains a cohesiveness that works like a great symphony!” – Andrew Neu  

• “‘Yesterday Again’ is deliciously filled with a great mix of jazz, blues, funk, latin, R&B and pop styles… and will leave you wanting “More Tomorrow.” – Norrie Lynch the Groovefather at Smooth Jazz ‘IN THE MIX’ Scotland       
• “The Smooth Jazz All Starz included Grammy Ballot Nominee trumpet and flugelhorn player Rob Zinn, who played a riff with a mute that Miles would be proud of…” – Doc Hardy On-Air Personality at WPKN Bridgeport 89.5 FM
