Hot Tuna 2021

Postby Six String » 31 Dec 2021, 18:47

I saw Jorma and Jack acoustic last night in Berkeley. First set 90 min and second set an hour or so. At their age (Jorma is 82 I think) they sound better than they have any right. Jorma in good voice and both play with a fluid dexterity that doesn’t seem possible at their age.

Underrated band. Burgers was a better album in 1972 than the current Airplane record (Long John Silver). Lots of other good stuff throughout the decade too.
Any more of this insolence and you will be given a warning. I've had it up to here with you lately. Don't push your luck.

In just over 2.5 hrs of playing they covered a lot of ground. They even played the title track of Barbecue King. I had friends who went multiple nights of the three night run. Last night satisfied me. Had a great meal at a Michelin star Japanese restaurant beforehand.

Agreed, Matt! And Jorma's first solo effort Quah (1974) is sensational.
Avant-garde? It's French for 'bullshit' - J. Lennon, 1965.

That it is, that it is...

I'm an Airplane fanatic, so it stands to reason I'd like me some Tuna.
