Known for his work with Moerlen's Gong, German guitar player Jens Christian Mayer finally made it and released his first solo record entitled "Steppin'up".
This is a journey through the world of Jazz-Rock and Modern Fusion.
Influenced by guitar players like Mike Stern, Robben Ford, Gary Moore, Michel Cusson to name but a few, Jens Christian Mayer has created a very entertaining fusion record with aggresive songs like the title track "Steppin'up" to smoother tasteful ballads like Yellow Shirt and an exraordinary funky guitar version of Suzanne Vega's "Toms Diner".
Supported by his long-time rhythm section with Pilou Wurtz on bass and Didier Hoffmann on drums, you can find two big names on this album: Extraordinary sax virtuoso Franck Wolf who is a member of Birelli Lagrenes band and Fusion legend Jamie Glaser (ex Jean-Luc Ponty and Chick Corea) on guitar.

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."
