Description

He may be one of the most lauded artists in the contemporary blues arena today, and rightfully so, but for Mike Zito, the thing that counts the most is maintaining his honesty, authenticity and integrity. Those are the qualities that have steered Zito's career since the beginning and continue to define every effort he's offered since. Zito's upcoming album -- his 16th -- due this November on Ruf Records and descriptively titled Rock N Roll: A Tribute to Chuck Berry, finds him broadening his boundaries still further even as it marks a return to his roots. The album consists of 20 Chuck Berry classics performed by Zito and an impressive array of 21 guest guitarists, among them Joe Bonamassa, Walter Trout, Eric Gales, Robben Ford, Sonny Landreth, Luther Dickinson, Albert Castiglia, Anders Osborne and, significantly, Chuck's grandson, Charles Berry III. Produced by Zito himself, the album was recorded at his own Marz Studios and mixed and mastered by David Farrell. "We recorded the basic tracks and then sent them to each guest musician," Zito recalls. "They added their contributions and then sent the files back to us. The process took a year to complete." Now, with Rock N Roll: A Tribute to Chuck Berry, Mike Zito again does what he does best, making an album that's humble, heartfelt, skilled and sublime....and, to paraphrase Chuck himself, letting it rock all at the same time.
