Kaukonen, Jorma & Vital Parts

The decade between 1976 and 1986 was the classic Rockpalast era. Most of our audience remember the Rockpalast nights at the Grugahalle in Essen, which were broadcast live on German TV and via Eurovision all over Europe twice a year. Great occasions for all Rockpalast fans, an opportunity for parties in front of the TV screen, from Italy to the North Cape.
This CD features JORMA KAUKONEN AND VITAL PARTS. KAUKONEN founded JEFFERSON AIRPLANE together with Paul Kantner and Marty Balin and has been quoted as saying that the band name was based on his own nickname, Blind Thomas Jefferson Airplane, which reflects Jorma’s love of the blues and specifically Blind Lemon Jefferson. Parallel to his membership with JEFFERSON AIRPLANE, Jorma founded his own band, HOT TUNA, with which he tours to this day. He has always been more interested in blues and American roots music (blue grass) than in rock. Before going completely independent, HOT TUNA performed as part of or following concerts by JEFFERSON AIRPLANE. JORMA KAUKONEN was born in Washington, D.C. in 1940. Having moved to California, he accompanied JANIS JOPLIN, among others, on guitar at her first minor shows in bars and small clubs. JORMA KAUKONEN has been inducted into the Rock’n’Roll Hall Of Fame.
The Rockpalast show took place on 29 November 1980 at the Kleine Westfalenhalle in Dortmund, one day after the JOHN CIPOLLINA concert (available on another Rockpalast CD/DVD). A little BAY AREA MUSIC festival.
