Zitos 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, Chucks grandson, Charles Berry III. This was a very special project for me, Zito says. I lived in Chucks hometown of St. Louis for 32 years, and I worked at a small musical instrument store where his drummer also happened to be employed. Chucks son would drop by on occasion as well. He was an icon, and rightfully so. Ive been playing his songs since I was a kid. Needless to say, he was a tremendous influence on my career, and, of course, on many other musicians as well. Produced by Zito himself, the album was recorded at his own Marz Studios and mixed and mastered by David Farrell.
