More jam bands entering my listening sphere now, like it or not ... I am listening to Umphrey's McGee for the first time (I've heard a bit here and there but never really spent any time with it) and I have to admit that love it! Similar to Phish, but with thicker arrangements and a different approach to songwriting (that I actually like a bit more than Phish). I only have this one tune, on a sampler from Homegrown Music. I wonder if all their stuff is like this? Through this same sampler, I learned about another band I now love, called Uncle Sammy. However, I guess I was a little too late on that one, as their web site announces they'll be breaking up this month. Doh.
