    The Caramoor was indeed wonderful! You guys and
    David Bromberg were awesome! The music could not get better,

    Dear Jorma, Jack and Barry,
    A wonderful show at the end of a wonderful day at Caramoor. It took me back 38 years to when I first saw EHT at the Academy of Music. You play even better now. Or I listen better now. Or both. I hope you’ll come back soon.

    Wow that sounds like a great set.

    Jorma, I am enjoying the new album more with every listen ! You and Dickie Betts are my fave tune-masters. He doesn’t write vocal lyrics of the same depth, but his solos on “goldie” are lyrical in their own sense.

    I was going to ask if you want to come thru NJ again before leaving the NE, but then I see you only have one day btw Mass and next southern show. Darn’it.
    We have a cool bar that gets bands nextdoor to my workplace – and my town has never been tunafied.

    I must declare i wish i was there, in the deed!
    As usual certain pics are not yet to be found at XY’s in 5th Ave or chez the Moma of the moment, but we know when we are in need of Hot colors where to direct our search to.
    In fact these two amazing photos by Jorma of the stage at the Venetian Theater at Caramoor show us how they color surfaces in the latest fashion of the art in lighting. The sensation you get out of such a suggestiveness is somewhat revolutionary in the sense that both in the history of buildings, arcades, Alhambra, archways, Gaudi, temples, Indian Renaissance, Greek statues and in the history of paintings, this taking on a violet coloration seems to belong more to the modern times, wasn’t dared before, PC helped a lot, magenta, violet, pinks are a range of colors that set on fire yellow, orange and red already hot by themselves, plus they are somewhat spiritual colors, more than somewhat, it’s the sign of the times that (unconsciously) the modern artist has the tendency to evoke over himself the ancient spirt’s Spirit.
    I didn’t know but now I do: I’m ‘TUNAFIED’! Thanks @ Bernie, just great!
    All’s Well. Come pilgrim I will bring you where you shall host.
    Thanks Jorma for the availability, thanks for your inexhaustible hints over any topic, art topics.
    Rock On Jorma, our Super Shining Star!
    Steady As She Goes!

    Great show and as Cindy described in a “magical” setting. Thanks to you and the “boys” for another great Tuna show. I was wonderin the other day – how many Tuna shows have you played – 747 or 1205 – do you or anybody, have any idea?

    Anyways, safe travels and I hope all is well at home in your happy valley.

    My speedometers evidence Jorma went on stage to sing and play his acoustic and electric guitars signing a good 7.500 appearances in Official Concerts, and will reach at 8.000 by 2015!

    7500………….No………..really……………It’s got to be more than that! Jorma does that in a year, It’s got to be more like 23,743,829,673 Jorma and Tuna shows since 1970.:0)

    @ Angelo

    Your speedometer is analogic and measures the miles per year Jorma has to cover to reach the Nations or the Continents rather than the Atolls where the gigs are announced, that’s why you have 23 billion, it’s the miles per year. Whereas my speedometers are just logic and are based on an average of one hundred and fifty concerts per year over a career of fifty years (actually they are more since Jorma started in 1958) but let’s be grand and start from Frisco. If the other year Jorma has done just 132 gigs instead of 150 we are short of eighteen, decimal digit compared to such a total, ‘cause every year Jorma is there with his numbers!
    So let’s be happy, if we missed the matinée performance our Super Shining Super Star will be on stage for the evening set or you can podcast this early morning’s gig Jorma performed at the local radio on direct stream, and if you are on the list the class with Jorma starts at five today. This is a typical schedule Jorma adopts for spending his days on tour.
    No kidding dear Angelo, we are lucky men!

    It is always a treat when you get to light someone you are a big fan of. When I saw a great show with Jorma and Rick Danko at the Capitol in Portchester when I was in college studying Lighting Design I had no idea I would be lighting him 17yrs later at one of the nicest concert venues in Westchester, NY. Thank you Jorma, Jack and Barry for a great night.
