RHR217 - River Of Time - Jorma Kaukonen
"A master of American music." - LA Weekly
"Front-porch folk music doesn't get much better." - Washington Post
River of Time is the perfect distillation of the journey, some 50 years after Jorma bought his first guitar. Produced by Larry Campbell (Dylan Band) at Levon Helm's Woodstock studio, River of Time features Levon on drums and a cast of stellar musicians including mandolin virtuoso Barry Mitterhoff. Campbell also plays and his wife Teresa Williams lends her outstanding vocal prowess. Six of it's thirteen songs are Jorma originals, a prolific showcase with themes of family, friends and inspired memory throughout. The album also revisits the blues and country music that Jorma first fell in love with in his youth, featuring bright new interpretations of Mississippi John Hurt, Merle Haggard and Rev. Gary Davis...and pays tribute to old friend "Pigpen" Ron McKernan on the Grateful Dead's "Operator." Whether reinterpreting classics or crafting new originals and shimmering instrumentals, River of Time finds Jorma at the top of his game with inventive arrangements and his strongest songwriting to date.
