In the spring of 2009 Rusty Zinn realized a long held dream, and spent two weeks in Kingston, Jamaica, the birthplace of reggae, to soak up the vibes and work on a new CD. The project was organized by Rusty with the help of his friend and mentor, Mikey Chung (Now Generation, Peter Tosh, Black Uhuru, Sly & Robbie) who played guitar on six tracks on “Manifestation”. Rusty and Mikey were joined on the six song session in Kingston’s Mixing Lab studio by none other than the great Sly Dunbar on Drums, Boris Gardiner on Bass, Robbie Lyn on Keyboards and the legendary Scully Simms on kette drum and percussion. With such true reggae royalty lined up behind him, Rusty has created a very soulful piece of Reggae art which Roger Steffens has already hailed as “a lustrous album of all faiths-embracing hymns for the new century”.
