2010 Fur Peace Ranch, Inc. (Jorma Kaukonen Catalog)
In keeping with his roots in the jam-band ethos of San Francisco's original acid-rock scene, Kaukonen has dropped a slew of digital-only live recordings via his Fur Peace Ranch imprint. On this particular date, the record release party for 2009's River of Time, the hippie-era icon teamed up with mandolin ace Barry Mitterhof and multi-instrumentalist Larry Campbell. The trio is tight but fluid, professional yet intimate. As with the typical Kaukonen performance, the material is a mix of folk-blues standards and original material culled from his days with Hot Tuna and Jefferson Airplane.
