Always a pleasure to get together with Brother John… always and of course a special thanks to our esteemed colleague Myron Hart who always makes sure that our stuff works.

Today I got up early and saddled up Black Beauty to meet my friend Bim in Nelsonville for a more than awesome two hundred mile ride. We headed up SR 78 and made a stop at the Big Musky Bucket. All these year in Ohio and I’d never visited before.

Bim led me to the home where he grew up in Summerfield. He’s slowly renovating the place and it’s going to be beautiful when it’s done. In the meantime amidst the construction, a multi generational story lives on.

Long ago but not so far away…

I have lived here in Ohio for almost thirty years now and it is my home… it shall remain so. It was an honor to get to know my friend a little better by being a guest in his home place. On some levels, small town America might seem to dwindle, but it is still strong and the roots run deep.

We took a moment to pay respects to his mom, resting on a beautiful hillside.

Amazing Grace indeed…

The roads, the weather, expanding one’s family by meeting another… just a great way to spend a day.

You know, I meant to write more but I’m not sure that more need be said.

It’s been a great day!

    I go with the relax and float downstream model. Much rather roll with the river than the punch.

    And it’s so cool that we’ve been getting to see Jorma play the very same guitar you hear on that tape. This may sound weird, but I think Janis is underrated. No shortage of great singers over the decades, but to my ears there’s her….then everyone else.

    For a time Dinah was married to NFL football great Dick “Night Train” Lane.

    I think you are talking about Dinah Washington…The reason you don’t know who she was is because after being a star in Chicago and making it in the music world she died of a tragic barbiturate overdose in 1963…I know inside stuff about her because a girlfriend of Jimi’s who was from Chicago was friends with her…That Thelonious documentary was something…I think Jimi visited Monk when he went to London in that film in 1967…It is something seeing that music come from his hands by improv…Monk does his whirling dervish spins in public…The Beebop was blowin…You can hear Miles and others come in and kill it in your head when it hits its peak…Just as far out as the best electric guitar…

      Check out the Brook Benton/Dinah Washington duets. Pop music at its finest.

    Turner Classic Movies showed ‘Jazz On A Summer’s Day’ last night…It was the filming of the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival…This was a real treasure because of the time period and what music was doing at the time…Rock of the 50’s gave birth to the 60’s but the second momentum was from Jazz…I presume Jorma was in his learning phase at this time…A real treat is a skinny young 32 year old Chuck Berry doing Sweet Little 16 where it’s slowed down in order to get everything out of it…

    @Bim Walker

    Happy Father’s Day to Jorma and all.

    Brother Bim, I believe I met you at the couples weekend a few years back. I believe you did an original tune that was quite poignant. I believe you are also the guy that tipped me off to the Double Dose weekend. I secured a spot because of your kind alert to me. Thanks!! Was a fun time w Jack and Jorma.

    Must be cool to roll w Jorma… I hope you stopped for a nice lunch or dinner.

    May your Mom’s memory be a blessing. She was young. I’m sure she’s proud of you. You picked a cool rider friend as well.

    Thoroughly enjoyed Saturday nights reprised Electric concert. Then yesterday my son and I went on a long motorcycle ride. Showed him Woodstock, Saugerties and the town of Catskill. It was a beautiful day for a ride and no better time to bond with your son than on Father’s Day.

    Thanks Jorma – Truly a great day all the way around. Glad I was able to share those beautiful roads with you.

    I used to work for an airline and I remember looking down at the east Ohio country side from low altitude and seeing the wooded hills and thinking that would be a good place to have a country home…

    That Hollywood Walk Of Fame Jefferson Airplane star is probably going to have a particularly deep vibe to it…
