Podcast #41 - September 2006 part 2 ::: podcast041.zip (69.3 MB)

DESCRIPTION: The Resolution that opened the two-week East Coast swing would set the tempo for much of the band's style for the rest of the year. Often times playing without a setlist, every song was a potential springboard that could lead into extended improv. Chick Corea's Senor Mouse is among the most difficult covers that Umphrey's tackles. Jake and Brendan welcomed their old guitar teacher, Jamie Magera, on-stage to pay respect to the man responsible for introducing them to many of the stylings that define their sound today. The 2nd Self is another example of the open-ended improvisation, as the band traverses through several different moods. Astute listeners may recognize a Jake lego from the 6/2/06 Great American, one of the tracks on "Jimmy Stewart" The Second Album. (umphreys.com)

Podcast #44 - November 2006 part 1 ::: podcast044.zip (72.8 MB)

DESCRIPTION: The 3-night Wisconsin run from last November, showcased some of their strongest playing in 2006 -- a level which would continue through the end of the year. The podcast begins with an extended take on Morning Song takes a includes a sublime solo section from Joel. Adopted from Jake's Ali Baba's Tahini days, a cover of the Michael Jackson/Paul McCartney collaboration The Girl is Mine also features the standard Jane Says (Jane's Addiction) interlude, while August features the band digging into the dark drone of Radiohead's National Anthem. The closing Ocean Billy sandwich is packed with 3 sections of Umphrey's more organic improvisational style, as they traverse through several genres and moods in each jaunt. (umphreys.com)

Podcast #45 - November 2006 part 2 ::: podcast045.zip (68.5 MB)

DESCRIPTION: The Bottom Half sets the table for a rousing KaBump which featured some crowd interaction, including Jake using an audience member's cell phone as a slide. The "Jimmy Stewart" that follows is a fine example of a few simple ideas coming together to form a 'song' in the moment, with melodies sure to be stuck in your head for days. Divisions is a spring board for Umphrey's to cover a wide array of genres and styles, everything from a Bill Frisell-ian stroll through I Heard it Through the Grapevine, a quick stop in the dirty funk of Dump City, a foray into some minimalistic post-rock, and even a tribute to Motley Crue.
