Each week, I will share three songs (or jams) I have been listening to recently that I think YOU should listen to. To check out all the previous weeks, visit thisisstormsound.com.
First up this week is Weather Report Suite from the Grateful Dead’s Dick’s Picks 12! One of my favourite Bob Weir compositions opens up into a long and expansive jam with the band’s jazzy 1974 sound on full display!
Next we have Attachments by Umphrey’s McGee from January 14, 2023 in Philadelphia. My favourite song from the Indiana jam titans is treated to a scorching Jake Cinninger guitar solo before bassist Ryan Stasik leads the way into funky improvisation that stretches just past the 20-minute mark! Listen with a Nugs.net subscription here.
Finally, we have Wait Until Tomorrow from the John Mayer Trio’s acclaimed live album Try!. Backed by the incredible rhythm section of Steve Jordan and Pino Palladino, Mayer’s vocal and guitar stylings perfectly suit this Hendrix cover as he rips it to shreds!
