…Tot is not only an able craftsman, but a musical personality. …(Z. T.), with the looks of a young Demis Roussos, 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

Lookout for Zvonimir! Here's a new guy from eastern Europe who has done his jazz homework. His sound is inspired by all, from Kenny Burrell to Pat Metheny but yet distinctly his own. Plus, he gives us some new content to ponder and enjoy with both his compositions and story-line solos. Backed by three of Chicago's finest, this recording will open some doors for Zvonimir and give listeners a new guitar treat. - Marshall Vente
