FPR Message From New Jersey

My son Zach, and I have just finished breakfast at the Rise And Shine Diner in Scotch Plains. We’re on our way to NYC for our Fur Peace On The Road Session. I picked Zach up in Columbus after the weekend at the Ranch with Happy Traum, Larry Campbell and Theresa Williams. The weekend was fantastic and the concert Sunday night was… well, celestial. I went on first and here is my little set list:

Jorma Alone At The Fur Peace Station
Larry Campbell & Theresa Williams
Happy Traum
Darwin, Ohio
Sunday, April 17, 2011

1. Baby Let Me Lay It On You with Larry
2. Second Chances with Larry
3. Children Of Zion with Larry and Theresa
4. Things That Might Have Been
5. Come Back Baby
6. Step It Up And Go with Happy and Larry

Happy came out and played, and towards the end of his set he was joined by Larry and Theresa. After the break, Larry and Theresa did their set and et the end they were joined by Happy and me. I seem to recall, Let Us Get Together Right Down Here… a couple of other tunes I can’t remember and oh yes, We Shall Be Released. A grand night in every respect. You can catch some of Larry and Theresa’s set on Youtube. Well Barry said you could anyway… Ok, that’s all I can remember right now. Zach and I have to head into Manhattan to meet Jack and set up some gear.

More anon…

    Hey Jorma… next time you are in New Jersey, you can stay at my home. LOL. I could show you some great places to eat. (I know Barry lives in NJ, and I can understand you would rather stay with him.)

    Hope you plan on playing the Tabernacle in Mt. Tabor this year. We missed you last year.

    The You Tube clip of last Saturday night’s concert is excellent!! Celestial weekend all the way around (as usual at FPR) is my guess.

    Have fun at the gig tonight!

    Happy Easter! It’s a day to celebrate miracles so a good opportunity to testify: How Steady As She Goes Changed My Life.

    Well first of all, now I have a theme song. In over 50 years that’s never before happened. Hello/Goodbye to the Blues. I don’t remember the exact title but it’s not the title but the music-rhythm/voice-lyrics/intangibles and how it moves me through time with a smile on my face, my toes tapping and head bobbing. Even though I know life can get really, really bad, I also find that happiness returns. We need to remind each other of that so we stay open to that grace. It puts me in mind of something that popped into my head one day: what a place this mess is in!

    Second, I have never enjoyed having the same music stick in my head for days. (We got the CD on the day it was released.) Not just one song, but a sequence. When I wake up at night and roll over, there’s a song I like in my mind. When I’m driving, there’s a song I like in my mind, walking the dog, between things at work, all that. How is that possible? I am my own jukebox?

    One more: I was moved to hand the CD to a colleague at work who I don’t get along with — we have virtually nothing in common. Hes’a musician but I can’t be in the same place as his sound without cringing at the effort the band puts forth, however earnestly. My northern California attitude offends his southern sensibilities. It’s not good. But he listened to the album (although on a computer, which is a travesty) and later he said, “Those are the guys you’ve been going to see? Hunh. I didn’t know that’s what you’ve been talking about. I’m going to give that a few more spins.” Now we talk in the hall.

    Everyday miracles: Hot Tuna is that for me, always has been. But Steady As She Goes is extra-special.
