Melvin Seals & JGB
What Jerry Garcia called Melvin Seals: “master of the universe”
Why?: Seals helped Garcia develop the jam-band sound throughout his 18 years with the Jerry Garcia Band, all while also controlling the cosmos
Seals’s ingredients for a good jam band: blues, funk, rock, and jazz with dashes of R & B and gospel
His instruments of choice: Hammond B-3 organ, keyboards, his own powerful pipes
JGB: Seals’s tight-knit band comprised of Dave Hebert (guitar and vocals), John-Paul McLean (bass), Pete Lavezzoli (drums), and Shirley Starks and Cheryl Rucker (backing vocals)
Why their chemistry is a virtue: they create off-the-cuff, naturally evolving music that’s as spontaneous as it is genre-bending
