Submitted by Cash Edwards M… on Wed, 01/11/2017 - 11:12 am

Hot Tuna, Jack Casady and Jorma Kaukonen (photo above) perform with a well-honed and solid power, always in the groove from their years of experience and mutual inspiration. Much comes from their subtle sense of feeling, the nuances that make their playing continually dynamic whether as an acoustic duo or a vibrant electric band, adding drummer, Justin Guip. They are heading west for the winter.

While art will always be a progressive process and reflect the changes of the people in our evolving world, some things are best kept preserved. Music is the perfect example of this. Progressive Rock, Jazz Fusion, Post Punk, New Wave, an echo of the culture and climate that influenced these musicians.

I had the privilege of attending my favorite festival of the year for the fifth year in a row, and I am here to tell you of the best place on Earth.

I first saw Jorma play an acoustic solo show in 1980 at the Palace Theatre in Albany, New York.  I remember shooting a bunch of photos of him playing that night, and I tried to find my film negatives before seeing him Friday night at Terrapin Crossroads in San Rafael, California.  I wasn’t able to find my old pics, but I’m glad I couldn’t.  Because to really experience the wonder that is Jorma (instant recognition from just his first name speaks to his sing

Hot Tuna is Out on Tour Across the USA

Submitted by Cash Edwards M… on Tue, 05/12/2015 - 9:24 am
