Jam Rock Music

Rooted in the extended jams of psychedelic icons the Grateful Dead, the Jazz comping of the Allman Brothers, and the Latin-tinged rock of Santana, Jam Rock came into its own in the 1980s and '90s. Jam Rock's essence is in live performance, as recorded formats place limits on spontaneity. Today's torch bearers are bands Phish and Umphrey's McGee.
