The Scene Of The Crime

scene of the crime

Yes folks, behind this rustic facade, music and perhaps even history is being made. Good old fun loving Hot Tuna is sequestered here to make it’s first studio CD in twenty years. Our good friend Larry Campbell is ramrodding this session and there’s some mighty fine stuff being recorded.

We’ve been putting in twelve hours days and it sure has been worth staying up past my bed time. We’re going to break for a couple of days to do our annual Beacon Theater gig with us returning to Levon’s place to start recording again by noon on Sunday the Fifth.

We’re gettin’ if done for sure!

    The luck we wear everyday as being HoTTunA crazies, deserves restitution. In the mor when first thing up and before coffee, we start the Tuna Mill on our pc thus kindling the flame of passion right from the beginning, one thought arises: not everybody has this chance. Once again when the Tuna curtain rises on, one is taken through this kind of a tunnel of love and by the time he is out, after having traveled through pictures, videos, audios, spiritual advices, the scent of a flower, how good this roast meat smells, well by that time the man flew like Angels fly, improved in all his aspects. My eyes are often stricken by the eyes of millions of children in hunger and distress and that touches my heart in the way that in my imaginary and in my prayers i wish their hearts and their eyes be replenished one great morning of the same harmony and love and happiness and hopes and dances i get when i open Jorma’s Pages, notwithsanding my daily nature.

    Since Friday at the Beacon with be the 3rd night of Chanukah, perhaps you would consider playing “Keep Your Lamps Trimmed and Burning”.

    If you do play it, if you could say that it’s for your friend Mark Frankel, it would be an amazing act of loving kindness.

    Jorma, I used to sing in a band back when you were in Jefferson Airplane. (loved your electric hair). Our band went to our lead guitar players’ house for practice and because you were his idol, he showed us a 45 with your name on it playing with Ricky Nelson. We also saw the Ozzie and Harriet show where Ricky Nelson’s band was playing, and there you were, short hair, white socks showing and it was really cool to see that. Now tell, me it wasn’t you. I asked this question once before to someone affiliated with you, and he said no, but I believed what I saw. One of my all time favorite guitar pieces is Embryonic Journey. Let me know whenever…

    Thanks, cheri

    JK,I know it’s a little late, but what about a DVD of the Beacon nights? I recently saw a Youtube video “Talking Bout You” at the Kewick Theater by Fur Peace Ranch and Kevin Morgan Studio Production. It was done exceptionally well! IT would be outstanding if we were able to get these shows on DVD so we would be able to relive the moment for years to come. PS I also happened to be at that very Keswick show, and of course it rocked! Thanks and see you at the Beacon.
