I began to play instruments at 5, started to play bass at 28, had my 1st influences from E. Weber, K. Doldinger and many scandinavian Jazz Musicians but found my way to Jazz via jazz-rock played by FZ, Miles Davis, Chicago, King Crimson, Patto and others.... Then started a long time of my life without music (the biggest mistake I made in my life), but found back in 1999/2000... It didn't work good in my joblife so I found a way back to my passion (music), played bassguitar and sang in several groups and my musical activities werd quite different - from renaissance to contemporary music... At the same time I had - and still have - a lot of joy with my friends in the hard-rocking group "Blackout". A short time after my divorce I found again my old friend (my very best!) with whom I made music in the mitdth of the 80's. We decided to go on... Inspired by the bassists Eberhard Weber (since '75) and Tony Levin (in the 80's) - and free again to do my own thing - I decided to start on the electric upright. that means p r a c t i s i n g , something I hated in my youthtime (that was a big mistake too!). But it's never too late ;-) ... What I'd love to do is some world-music projects. And that's why i'm here too (remember Diz in the 50's, he was one of the pioneers once - in my eyes). Can't stand radio stuff and the way the majors sell music - like hamburgers (John Mc. Laughlin said that once, right?)

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.
I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.
My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."
