Reviewed: Jorma Kaukonen – Ain’t In No Hurry
One-time Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna picker Jorma Kaukonen is back with a new album of stripped-down acoustic tunes that showcase his uncomplicated songwriting and classic blues picking style.
Meandering through American folk, blues, and a few tunes that have a laid-back, Jimmy Buffett sound. Ain’t in No Hurry features covers and original tunes and help from Kaukonen’s longtime Hot Tuna bandmate Jack Casady, Barry Mitterhoff on mandolin, Larry Campbell on strings, and Teresa Williams on backing vocals.
For longtime fans of Kaukonen, this album is an intimate glimpse into the mind and music of a renowned artist, and for new fans, this is a great jumping off place to start backtracking your way through Kaukonen’s celebrated career.
