Jorma Kaukonen Offers Old School Acoustic

Jorma Kaukonen
Ain’t In No Hurry
(Red House)
In A Word: Relaxed

Ain’t In No Hurry is certainly an apt title for Jorma Kaukonan’s latest album. Nearly 50 years since he blazed a psychedelic trail with Jefferson Airplane, and 45+ years since he splintered off with Jack Casady as Hot Tuna, the album finds Kaukonen happy to kick back, gather some friends, and pick and sing.

The result is a relaxed, understated collection of originals and standards along the line of “Nobody Knows You When You’re Down and Out” and “Brother Can You Spare A Dime.” Touching on blues, Appalachian folk, bluegrass, and gospel, this is old man’s music in the best way: thoughtful, knowing, considered, and wise enough to realize that playing music that gives you joy is reason enough.
