Jorma Kaukonen is one of the most important guitarists of our time with a body of work that has grown over four decades now. His brilliant finger-picked fretwork and songwriting, blending rock, blues, folk and country influences, helped make stars out of Jefferson Airplane and its equally legendary (and still active) spinoff band Hot Tuna.
