Jorma Kaukonen: I Am The Light of This World

Today’s Spiritual Sunday song was written and recorded by Rev. Gary Davis in the 1930s. Today’s interpretation is from the hands and voice of Jorma Kaukonen who was the lead guitarist of the Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna.

This version of “I am the Light of this World” comes from Jorma’s first solo album, Quah, which was recorded in 1974. Jorma’s rendition is very true to Gary Davis’ original.

“I’ve got fiery fingers and I’ve got fiery hands. When I get up into heaven, gonna play in a fiery band.”
