Rebel without a cause

Myths have always been a common theme for us as human beings. They tell us the tales of our very nature and who we really want to be.

While in ancient times gods and demigods were the protagonists of those stories, today we honour the heroes of our time: James Dean stands for the eternal rebel like no other.

When you see saxophonist Jan von Klewitz playing, you quickly recall the ideal of the eternally freedom-seeking, adventurous James Dean. Jan von Klewitz's charisma resonates with this myth.
