Hot Tuna's Jorma Kaukonen: "We're Back in the Saddle"

Jorma Kaukonen is a genuine musical journeyman, a man whose trajectory has all but ensured his musical immortality. As a member of both the Jefferson Airplane and its bluesy offshoot Hot Tuna, which he formed with bassist and longtime friend Jack Casady, his name is forever ingrained in the annals of rock history. On the eve of his 73rd birthday, he remains as active, enthused, and eager to pursue his muse as at any time in his 50-year career.
