Right after the release of the documentary “No looking back” about his musical career featuring some of the most renowned artists and press. Jorge Salán released a new project loaded with Blues under the name of JORGE SALÁN AND THE MAJESTIC JAYWALKERS, showing us his versatility and guitar skills. In fact, Jorge Salán is currently presenting his new album all over the world. “Graffire” (his best work so far) contains original blues/rock songs and special guest like Jeff Espinoza (Red House, Lou Marini), Garrett Wall (Track Dogs) and Danny Griffin (Fito y Fitipaldis).
“After nearly fifteen years of my career I have played with the best national and international musicians and Rock bands, stepped on some of the greatest stages you can imagine and other places better forgotten.
I gathered together my career in a documentary “No looking back”, where I tried to show some of the experiences with artists and friends who have been with me all these years. I keep hundreds of stories and memories about all this. But there’s something I have carried with me all this time, a style of music that made me understand, even more, the instrument I have devoted my whole life to: The Blues.
This is not a “crossroads” neither I’m trying to give up my past and musical present. It’s something else. A feeling I always wanted to express somehow and I said that I would do it someday.
Here is where The Majestic Jaywalker is born. My new home where I will play Blues supported by The Jaywalkers”.
