In 2016, veteran trumpeter and flugelhornist Rob Zinn launched an exciting new phase of his distinguished, multi-faceted career, emerging as a nationally recognized independent smooth jazz artist with his critically acclaimed albums Walk The Walk (2018) and Yesterday Again (2016).
Zinn, an endorser of Chicago based Phaeton Trumpets just released his sophomore album, Walk The Walk in April 2018. Produced by 2-time Grammy winner Paul Brown, Walk The Walk is an explosive collection of a multitude of styles that Zinn has performed over the years, including funk, Latin, R&B, rock, pop and urban jazz. In addition to showcasing his infectious songwriting and versatility on horns, it included guest appearances by East Coast based genre great Andrew Neu (saxophones) and West Coast great Michael Paulo (saxophones) and of course Paul Brown’s tasty guitar licks on several tracks. Songs from the album received airplay on over 125 smooth jazz stations around the world.
When not playing with his own band, Rob often appears as a sideman with guitar player and double Grammy winner Paul Brown.
