Quotes:

Funderburgh undeniably remains best known in the blues field for his extraordinarily concise lead guitar attack.  In addition to anchoring his latest iteration of The Rockets, he’s been touring since 2010 with Bay Area-based harmonica player Mark Hummel as a prime factor in the Golden State-Lone Star Revue.  Another frequent musical cohort is New Orleans multi-instrumentalist Eric Lindell; they’ve recorded and toured together on a regular basis, including six appearances at the annual New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. 

Funderburgh’s unmistakable style, tone and sensibility has made him one of contemporary blues music’s most important guitar players.  Once a clean-cut up-and-comer on the national blues scene who’s crisp, biting guitar licks belied his soft-spoken manner, Anson has developed into a legacy artist and his influence on countless guitarists is immeasurable. 

The Memphis Commercial Appeal raved, “Rusty Zinn is the real deal. To say this is the best blues release of the year is an understatement.” 
 
The cuts on CONFESSIN’ play like time-capsuled tunes in a forgotten Memphis jukebox,” shouted Blues Revue. “If rompin’, stompin’ pedal-to-the-metal blues is your thing, here’s a record for you,” announced Vintage Guitar.
