Jakša Jordes SAX live, DJ Prince @585 club Bol
Jakša Kriletić Jordes was born in Split, grew up on the island of Korčula, Lumbarda and currently lives in Zagreb. In his early childhood he discovered love for music and desire to form his own band. After he finished primary school in Lumbarda, he continued his education in music schools in Split and Dubrovnik. First instruments he learned to play were mandolin and clarinet. After graduating from high school, he bought his first saxophone, returned to Korčula and began with intensive learning in order to become a sax player (tenor saxophone). In 1995 he came to Zagreb, where he met Davor Gobac front man of well-known Croatian band Psihomodo Pop. This was a significant moment in Jordes’ music career.
Just few days after he met Gobac he made his first appearance with Psihomodo Pop on festival Fiju Briju 3 in front of more than nine thousand people. In the period from 1995 – 2004 he regularly played with significant musicians and bands from the Croatian rock’n’roll scene (Pips, Chips & Videoclips, Majke, Let 3) and performed with different bands on festivals across the region (Exit, Beer fest, Karlovački dani piva, C’est is d’Best). In 2003 Jordes and his first band IHTHIS published debut album “Armageddon Fun” with unique addition – first cyber novel, whose author was Kriletić Jordes itself. After fifteen years of successful music-playing career and constant performances, turning point in Jordes music career happened in 2004 when he performed for the first time with house DJ in the famous club “Jedinica” in Zagreb. After 2004 Jakša Kriletić Jordes became well-known saxophonist on local house scene. His free improvisation performances with house and electro DJs attracted the attention of foreign publishers Hed Kandi and Ministry of Sound after what he joined them on tour. Playing with music stars like Luke Neville, Lisa German, Dean Rigg i Chris Bailey led him to the leading Italian producer and DJ, who offered him cooperation. In February 2009 he performed with renowned house DJ Roger Sanchez in Sarajevo after what he became a recognizable saxophonist throughout the region. In 2012 Jordes releases his second album “Ambidexter” this time playing different music style, house and pop. Regular performances in Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and Slovenia ensured Jordes collaborations with leading DJs of the region and frequent appearances in Austria, Switzerland, Hungary and England.
