Track

Zdenko Ivanusic

Primary Instrument: Saxophone

Zdenko Ivanusic

I graduated in saxophone performance at the Zagreb Academy of Music. I lead Donna Lee Saxophone Quartet and Zdenko Ivanusic Quartet, which are, besides jazz standards, focused on my own music. I'm in demand as a sideman in various ensembles and groups.

Through my experience in classical music, jazz, fusion and funk I attain a unique approach in most musical settings, from a symphonic orchestra, chamber ensembles to a big band, a saxophone quartet or a small band.

Awards

Third Annual Fame Games Effigy Award 2009 winner in Best Instrumental Performance category.
Lost In HTML is truly an unexpected musical treasure, a gem of a recording if I ever heard one. Zdenko Ivanusic may not be familiar to the average jazz audience, but this album, his cleaver charts and a marvelous performance on the reeds, has succeeded in winning over this jazz critic after only one listen...Edward Blanco @ eJazzNews.com

...his somewhat dry timbre is remindful of Greg Osby and/or Steve Coleman. He develops his absorbing solo at a deliberate pace to start, but his singing lines gradually accelerate and are soon interspersed with passionate, dissonant cries...Scott Albin @ Jazz.com

...versatile player as comfortable on alto as he is on tenor, Ivanušić covers a surprising breadth of musical territory here, ranging from sweet, straight-ahead jazz to the Latin-informed, odd-metered modern mainstream and even a taste of funk and go-go...John Kelman @ AbstractLogix.com
