Early evening Fall sky at the FPR

So Larry Campbell came in yesterday to produce and play on my new recording project for Red House Records. We’re doing this at the Fur Peace Station so we have converted the Station into a recording facility for the next ten days or so. Justin Guip came down from Woodstock, N.Y. to engineer the session and to play drums as needed. (Justin is also currently playing drums with Electric Hot Tuna.) With the able assistance of Myron Hart my guitar tech and pal… we got three songs done the first afternoon… well, basics, anyway.

Well, that’s about it for the first day… good sounds with more to come. I’ll sleep well tonight.

Goodnight Ranch

    Just a late comment regarding reflections on a Sunday afternoon. Can one ever truly understand why certain experience’s happen along life’s journey? Our feelings are unique unto ourselves but commonly shared. Is grieving selfish or rather love exemplified. I’d like to think that out of all of life’s experiences, goodness comes. We are where we are not solely by our own accord but from a power much greater. On June 21, I was standing outside the Bergan Pac Theater with hopes of delivering to Jorma a tee that I gave him over 40 years ago at the Capital Theater in Passaic and which he then wore on the 76 cover of Guitar Player magazine. Instead, I fell in love with a man I met there that night and shared that story with him and our mutual Hot Tuna music interest. Vanessa, commented in her blog years back that when she met Jorma, she felt she had come home. I’m home, the Lord knew our hearts and joined them together.

    About a year or so ago you commented on your blog that you were going to try writing the lyrics first and then the music. Will we be hearing any new songs that you did this way ? Now we can look forward to not only seeing Tuna at the Beacon in December but the added treat of a new Jorma album !

    Wonderful. Hope you roll out some of the new tunes at the upcoming University of Miami show in three weeks. Also be seeing you at the Jack B-Day celebration at the Beacon in December.

    Looking forward to hearing it. I have loved just about every Jorma project that has come out. Especially the last few. Blue Country Heart, Stars in My Crown and River of Time.. all masterpieces in my mind. And it’s about that time of year to start getting excited (well more excited), for Jack’s BD bash!

    I can smell it – they’re cooking something out there @ the Ranch. Smells like fresh caught Hot Tuna. I can’t wait.

  12. Looking forward to the newest Jorma Album…Rock on Captain!!
