this week we go deep into extended, improvised performances by the kings of genre: the red hot chili peppers, neil young, the grateful dead, umphrey's mcgee, and buckethead. (sorry if you were expecting nostalgic elevator music; this won't be it.)

santana, mclaughlinone of the more interesting tracks is an out-take from an album released 40 years ago, featuring shri chimnoy disciples and cajones-bursting guitarists, carlos santana & john mclaughlin [pictured]. i'll play an ecstatic unreleased version of john coltrane's jam, "a love supreme."

also fun for its locality is umphrey's mcgee's live track recorded at their 2004 concert in iowa city.
