ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Zvonimir Tot (z-VON-e-mere TOTE) is a jazz guitarist, composer, and arranger with a style deeply rooted in the jazz tradition but flavored by his European origin. His twisty trek to America has resulted in an unusual collection of degrees: a Bachelor's degree in jazz guitar and music education from Franz Liszt Academy of Musical Arts in Budapest; another Bachelor’s, in jazz performance, from Amsterdam Conservatory in The Netherlands; and a Master's in composition and jazz studies from Northern Illinois University in DeKalb. Tot has performed and/or recorded in The Netherlands, Germany, Hungary, Yugoslavia, the Czech Republic, Romania, and Croatia, with such world-renowned musicians as violinist Johnny Frigo, saxist Billy Harper, the British saxist Peter King, drummer Paul Wertico, and the late Danish bassist Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen. Tot currently teaches at the University of Illinois (Chicago) and College of DuPage in the Chicago suburbs, and also maintains a private teaching studio.

Short Quotes:

Zvonimir Tot is the hot new voice in the world of jazz guitar virtuosos.
Judy Roberts, Chicago Jazz Magazine

(Z.T.) ...is an extrovert soloist who plays from the heart. He improvises with a typical Balkan singing quality, an intense feeling for the blues, rich imagination, and unbelievably fast fingers.
Jeroen de Valk, Dutch jazz critic, Het Parool, Amsterdam

...Travels and Dreams is a remarkable disc and Zvonimir Tot is someone deserving far greater recognition.
Rich Friedman, All About Jazz

Zvonimir Tot's rapid fire guitar sets the pace in this fine ensemble. His ballad style also highlights this recording with soulful elegance. (...) 4 stars.
John Gilbert, ejazznews.com

His virtuoso guitar technique (...) has much to offer to the adventurous and serious jazz lover.
Prof. Richard Wang, Jazz educator and publicist, Former President, Jazz Institute of Chicago

His sound is inspired by all, from Kenny Burrell to Pat Metheny but yet distinctly his own.
Marshall Vente, Jazz Institute of Chicago

Tot is an inspirational player of the guitar; (...) his largamente style feels like one big stretch.
Ferdinand Maylin, JazzNow
