Zachary Biggus Zachary Biggus

Zachary Biggus was surrounded by music at a young age. He began playing guitar at the age of 11, focusing first on rock and later turning his interest to jazz. By 16, he was working with local bands in the Chicago land area. In 2010 Biggus released his first album, “Jusqu’a Présent”. This independent release displays Biggus’ capacity for composition as well as improvisation. Since it’s release, Biggus continues to perform regularly in the Chicago land area, and has established himself both in his tasteful complements to the rhythm section and on innovative solo flights.
“From The Very Start” is the latest studio release from Zachary Biggus and features original compositions, drawing from styles of Rock and Jazz. All songs performed by Christopher Grandberry (drums), Adam Bockman (bass), and Zachary Biggus (guitar) and Sean Hill (tenor sax). This is an instrumental album with a focus on improvisation.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
