A Hearty Thanks To My Friends At Gibson, U.S.A.

April 23rd, 2016 Jorma 16 comments

So, today is the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Show at the Dolby Theater here in Los Angeles! Who would have thought that you would hear Run DMC and Jefferson Airplane in the same sentence? Anyway, the taping of the show is tonight so I’ll talk about that more tonight or tomorrow but first I need to thank and honor my friends at Gibson.

Wowzy...

Wowzy...

So I’ve been playing Gibson guitars all my life and I’ve loved them all. I bought my 1958 Gibson J-50 in Dayton, Ohio at Pop’s Music Store in 1959. It cost a hundred bucks, and worth every penny. I learned to finger pick on that guitar… it’s the guitar I played Embryonic Journey on. Learned to pick, sing and write on that guitar. It was the musical story of my life for… well, a long time. When I’m gone it will belong to my son Zach.

IN 1965 or ‘66, I bought a Red ES-345 Stereo at Sherman and Clay in San Francisco for about $400. I bought it on time… it seemed like a lot of money back then. That guitar became the guitar I developed my sound in the JA on. I owned a number of ES-345’s and ES-355’s back in that day, but that first red one was always the one. I gave it to my friend Maj when I was flush with cash and buying a lot of guitars. It was stolen from him in London and has been gone for over forty years.

When this Grammy Lifetime Award came up, I contacted my old friend Ron Moe down at Gibson Guitars in Nashville. I wondered what the chances were that there was an ES-345 around that I could use for the ceremony since we’re playing some live songs on the show. He said he’d run it up the flagpole to see if there were any salutes.

Enter his friend Mike Volz the director of Research And Product Development at Gibson, Memphis. Mike saw to it that his team hand crafted a replica of that 1964 Gibby, including the original wiring harness and matched caps and pots. The paint is off the charts… the hardware is lightly stressed and it plays like a dream. I’ll be using it a lot in upcoming shows.

Mike Volz, Jorma, The Guitar and Ron Moe

Mike Volz, Jorma, The Guitar and Ron Moe

This was totally unexpected… it is such a blessing! Many thanks to Mike and his team of craftspeople. And Ron… well, you know how I feel.

ES-345 and replica period case!

ES-345 and replica period case!

It is true that we’re missing Passover being here in LA like this, but it is a mitzvah of another sort.

Zeissen Pesach…

…and let’s rock!

The Week That Was And More

April 5th, 2016 Jorma 27 comments

So… a week ago yesterday, the irrepressible Myron Hart and I jumped in my truck and started driving to Ogunquit, Maine. Even though the gig at Jonathan’s wasn’t until Friday, we figured ‘Why rush?’ We took two days. Anyhoo… We got in on Thursday, meet Phil at the train station and looked around for a place to eat.

Time for dinner...

Time for dinner...

Yeah buddy… Billy’s Chowder House was looking good.

These babies were looking good too...

These babies were looking good too...

The good old Meadowmere wasn’t serving breakfast… it’s definitely not ‘Season’ yet so almost nothing was open… but, we discovered Leanne Cusimano’s Amore Breakfast.

Leanne and Jorma

Leanne and Jorma

Leanne’s place is absolutely awesome… food, hospitality… the whole deal. Plus, I’m a coffee nut, and the coffee at Amore is some of the best I have ever had!

A little walk by the beach… and then thoughts of Jonathan’s began to cross our minds.

A light in the dark

Sunday morning we got up and looked for a breakfast joint. Burlington is a college town, so everything in town was just to darn crowded. I’m not waiting and hour to get breakfast anywhere. We started driving towards Albany and couldn’t find one normal diner in whole state of Vermont. All I wanted was breakfast. Around lunch time we crossed the border into New York… and there was a diner.

Good Times.

In Albany… I was guest for David Bromberg’s Birthday Bash… and a good time it was. That lad knows how to throw a party!

So Wednesday the 25th Myron and I drove to D.C. where I had the privilege of not only opening the show for Susan and Derek, but also getting to sit in with them. On the way to the Capitol City, we stopped in Winchester, Virginia to get some gas. It was more than a gas station… Throx Brew Market & Grille. Awesome sandwiches. A worthy stop.

In D.C. we were booked into the Mansion On O Street… an experience in and of itself.

Honey, I'm home!

Jitlada… Culinary Magnificence Thai Style!

Foto by Vanessa Lillian

So I’m checking my blog the other day and there was a comment from one Ray Gallo. He’s into the music and of course I dug that… but there was more. I’ve been hanging out in Japan Town for the last week and he mentioned that he and is wife have a little Thai restaurant, Jitlada, up on Buchanan Street. Now it is true that a man’s gotta eat… but there’s more than that. A man’s gotta eat good food… and this was some of the best I’ve ever had!!!!! I kid you not. Click on the Jitlada link above and check out the menu. I’ve had a lot of Thai food… and I love it, obviously… but this topped it all. These are not hyperbolic superlatives, it really is the best. It’s right above the walking street part of Buchanan on the East side of the street.

I can’t say enough about this… you gotta go… and tell them Jorma sent you!

Going home tomorrow… glad my last dinner in San Francisco was at Jitlada!

People always say to me, ‘Wow, it must have been great back in the day with tour buses and all.’ ‘Guess again,’ would be my reply. Country stars had tour buses, not rock musicians. We toured in Ford LTD wagons… rented. Now I know this is an Olds not a Ford, but you get the picture. Jefferson Airplane’s equipment truck was a Grumman bodied Metro bread delivery truck.

Good times…

I blew into California for some solo shows and one with Jack for the Owsley Stanley Foundation benefit at the Great American Music Hall. My first show was the Rendezvous and it was a swell way to start this little run. When Myron was setting me up for this gig, the jack in my ‘acoustic’ guitar took a poop… but there was a great little music store in town on Oroville Ave….Herreid Music. They drove a new pickup over to the gig and Myron put it in… game on! Thanks guys!!!!
