Listening to Ain't In No Hurry, it's difficult to imagine Jorma Kaukonen was a founding member of the San Francisco psychedelic band The Jefferson Airplane. The gentle, friendly-sounding finger style picking that supports these 11 songs is nothing like the out-there, hippie music of the man's distant past.

However Kaukonen has always been a topnotch guitarist, and his skills have taken him on a widely varying journey, which also included formation of the band Hot Tuna. He's a member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and an in-demand guitar teacher.

Ain't In No Hurry is Kaukonen's third full-length for Red House Records. It's a mixture of old songs and Kaukonen originals. The band includes Jack Casady, Barry Mitterhoff, Larry Campbell, Teresa Williams, Myron Hart and Justin Guip.

One of the album's prettiest originals is “In My Dreams,” where Kaukonen confesses that he never seems to age in his dreams, and one of the album's gospel-esque tunes is “Suffer Little Children to Come Unto Me” is actually a Woody Guthrie lyric Kaukonen and Campbell put music to.

There's also a really lovely Carter Family song on the album, “Sweet Fern,” which has a slide guitar part that kind of gives the recording a slightly Hawaiian feel. The overall playing is deceptively good because Kaukonen doesn't need to show off fast fingers to prove his skills. He just plays the music the way it should be played, and it all comes off beautifully.

One of the album's other notable songs is “The Terrible Operation,” written by Rev. Thomas A. Dorsey. Dorsey is most famous as a gospel songwriter (hing: the Rev in his name). Yet this is a fairly sexy little song.

Campbell produced this album with simplicity and taste. There was no obvious attempt to somehow make Kaukonen sound modern. Campbell didn't try and push Kaukonen out there with all the other higher profile guitar slingers.The album's title track, composed by Jim Eagan, is a meditation on living life to its fullest by refusing to rush through one's days. Instead, the goal is to take one's time and just enjoy every waking moment.

This album probably won't blow you away unless you're a guitarist yourself and fully understand how much skill it took to play these songs. Even so, you'll love it even if you don't completely comprehend its skills. Like the album's title advises, take your time, don't be in a hurry and just enjoy this one.
