A Day In Palermo

Genova 1

Italy is always so much fun… no question about it. The schedule is hectic, but the people and the beautiful land more than make up for it. Today was so beautiful here in Palermo… it was hotter and more humid in Ohio… fancy that.

I mean really… we ate here two days running. How much better than that does it have to get? In any case, today was our WOMAD gig and I know we were going to love it. That came to pass, of course. We were surrounded by jagged buttes and seventh century ruins. What a setting to play music in.

    Good to hear. We will be in the lakes area next mont(Como,etc.) and saw your show at the Fillmore last month. The last time I saw you was in LA at the Palomino (early 80’s), with Jack and your brother opened. Glad to see you are doing so well. Hope you come back to SF soon…with HOT TUNA! Bill

    Panornum is its ancient Latin name and the town was literally crossed and lit, last night, by the ‘Tuna’s Comet 2011’. My daughter Rosa who was at the venue, so reported. Quote: ”There ain’t such a multi-distance runner like Jack, he can win the hundred meters burning you on the thread, like he can easily beat you dashing in the marathon, the harmony of Jack’s typical deep sound was so much matching with the austere environment you could feel a couple of millenniums unveil in a night, not only, Jack performed the classical ‘duck step’ or ‘soldier pace’, unbeatable! Jorma had to concentrate all of the artistic unique wardrobe He masters in just eight songs, so neat, I wish I was in the middle of the ‘Conca d’Oro’, to see how the red Mediterranean tunas coped with such a concert! Barry simply showed to the Country of the Mandolins how a Buckeye Mandolin could be played in Sicily. Abe Fogle Cozmic Power! Never, dad, I could have imagined such a thing”. Unquote.
    It’s three in the aft here in Roma and I have to scoot to the sound check not to loose an inch.
    Bless You Tuna!
    When the Hot Band is around everything is so spectacular!!
    Always Thanks Jorma.
