”Fans of jazz/rock fusion will find a lot to like in Zachary Biggus‘ eight-song Jusqu’â Présent, wherein, aided by able bass and drums sidemen, he displays not inconsiderable prowess on guitar. Even if you keep jazz fusion at a distance, be impressed with his technique, and find the decidedly more rock-like construct of second cut “Fess Up” and solo acoustic guitar turn on closer “Feeling Rain” a welcome respite from the near nonstop “chicka-chicka” jazzbo beat.” ( ” David C.

“True Jazz fans will absolutely love the [8] track CD as it combines smooth jazz, funk, soul and rock.” ” Nine5four magazine
