Born in Belgrade in 1968, pianist Bojan Zulfikarpašić settled in Paris at the age of 20 to quickly become an influential figure on the French and European Jazz scene. A brilliant musician with a dazzling technique, Bojan Z (as he ended up calling himself to make his tricky surname easier to pronounce) also constantly merges his Serbian and Balkan background into his music. “Don’t Buy Ivory, Anymore” is a remarkable circular theme composed by French double bass player Henri Texier which first appeared on his 1993 recording An Indian’s week and which already featured Bojan Z on the piano. The latter revisits the theme on his 2001 release Solobsession, a highly original and landmark solo piano recording that has definitely stood out the test of time.
