Best Jam Band 

Vitamen A

Long before there was anything like a jam band scene or the cult of Trey, the heavy-rock veterans of Vitamin A (now spelled Vitamen A) were exploring the outer limits of the Zappa-Floyd-Dead psychedelic nexus, a style that's as brainy as it is blasted by mushroom flashbacks and King Crimson quadraphonic LPs. Formed in 1991 by guitarists Tony Vrooman and Tracy Lowe, the group doesn't just stretch out — they engorge on polyrhythms, construct vertiginous towers of riffs and mathematically distend solos to the point of total implosion of structure. And yet somehow, the band always returns to a funky, ass-shaking groove.
