Therefore your argument is rubbish, as well as being full of profanity and anti-Semitic. Are you Mel gibson, by any chance?

Colonel Claypool's Bucket of Bernie Brains. Not sure if it's jam but it has no definition.

i know an old lady who supports abortion because it's generally low-class black women getting it performed and for her the less inner-city black kids (or blacks in general) there are, the better.

Oh Damn

Quote by frottage
is jam just improv?


Jam is an improvised journey in the music, when the song goes somewhere unplanned and uncharted.

Jam is a philosophy, and jam is the rawest form of rock music.

In addition to the ones that have been said look up Brother's Past. And a ton of psychedelic bands from the 60's were technically jam bands like Santana and the Doors and Jimi Hendrix. Good luck with the greatest music ever.

hell ya! they still do at the live shows. (20+ min. version of spitting venom) almost every song on the cd "This is a long drive for someone with nothing to think about" has a jam in it.

The Mars Volta.

Watch these videos;
they are all parts of the same concert but I would recommend starting with part 2.

If my memory is correct then part 1 is just a lot of noise.

part 1

part 2

part 3


Ah, Abortion: The Other White Meat. Unbelievable. I've always wanted to go to one of their live shows.

I gotta show my bandmates some of these bands... they seem to think O.A.R. is the definition of "jam band".

You say that as if O.A.R. is bad.


But in all honestly threadstarter, no. There's actually NO good jam bands.

I never said O.A.R. is bad. What I meant was that there's a whole variety of improvisational bands out there, and my mates really can't see past the easily approachable ones.

But on a related note, I'm addicted to Umphrey's McGee now.
#39
They've all pretty much been said but:

Umphrey's Mcgee
Tea Leaf Green
Allman Brothers Band
Phish

plus many many more

For those who are really into the dead, I was really surprised by the jamming in Ryan Adams live show... two guitars, a lap steel, a bass, and a drummer. Although his albums tend to roll in a completely different direction, the live shows demonstrate that he's clearly locked up with his band.

This is a show he played in Columbus, Ohio, my hometown, in October of last year -- it was a 3.5hr+ show, with 40-some songs, great energy, and probably one of the best shows I've been to.

Anyway, the first two songs have some decent jams in there, nothing too crazy ridiculous (definitely not as frenetic as TMV or Bela) but Ryan is a really good songwriter so enjoy.

OAR and DMB to me have been so overplayed that I want to kill myself. OAR is from Columbus where I live and all the fratboys love it... I'm really REALLY sick of it.
