“A master in situ, unfurling melodies and savoring every note” – Rolling Stone

Jorma Kaukonen's solo release on Red House Records is sweeping the country with good vibes. From his tour’s first five sold out shows to the reviews and radio play Jorma’s audiences are listening and enjoying “Ain’t In No Hurry” (Red House CD 282). The Huffington Post says Jorma is a "gentle soul with the magic fingerpicking hands." (

“The new songs Kaukonen’s written for “Ain’t in No Hurry” reflect that [Acoustic] music, in their melodies and sentiments, and the delicate, expressive picking that goes with them, and also the point in life he’s reached without maudlin nostalgia... This is no “Geriatric Journey.” The background in that old time, direct roots music he loves seems to be what’s supported and sustained his musical creativity and buttressed his career’s longevity.” – Barry Mazor, Cuepoint
