Vinnie Zummo is all about being eclectic. There are few genres that he cannot recreate as a player or as a writer/producer. He has been playing from the age of five and though he started out in rock and roll, he fell in love with bop and all subsections of jazz when he was about 18. Vinnie is probably best known for his seven years with the Joe Jackson Band but since leaving Joe he has carved out a unique and eclectic collection of solo albums. His three Swinging Guitar Sounds of Young America CDs are unique in that every cut is a different genre. Song to song there are tracks that sound like undiscovered Beatles songs or Beach Boys or Ted Wills or BB King or John Scofield.
