Umphrey’s McGee Announces “From The Hip” Full Set Of Improvisation With Joshua Redman

first_imgOn January 28th, 2016, Umphrey’s McGee hit the Orpheum Theater in Madison, WI and delivered their first ever set of full improvisation. Joined by saxophone master Joshua Redman , the band worked through an entire set of music without any setlist or even any songs. It set was a huge triumph for the band, pushing themselves outside of their comfort zone and delivering something truly unique and awesome. Then, they repeated the impressive feat at UMBowl 2016 with great success.Now, the band has announced another “From The Hip” set, taking place on Friday, January 27th at the State Theatre in Portland, ME. Umphrey’s McGee will once again be joined by Joshua Redman for the occasion, guaranteeing that the show will be a master class in jazz-fusion improvisation.Check out some pro-shot footage from the first “From The Hip” set below, courtesy of TourGigslast_img
