About The Dead’s music:
What sets jam bands apart from the rock mainstream isn’t so much the jamming — every flavor of halfway decent American music has improvisation. Jam bands, the Dead in particular are distinctive for their loose, laid-back, non-urgent feel, a vibe that has more in common with jazz or country than rock.
The Dead didn’t kick much ass, but there are things you can do other than kick ass. For such a big lumbering animal, the band could play remarkably quietly. On ballads like “He’s Gone” or “High Time,” they could bring two electric guitars, a six-string bass, one or two keyboards, and one or two full drum kits down to total silence at the end of each measure, in a stadium packed with people. This is no small accomplishment. Playing loud and hectic is easy; playing restrained and quiet is hard. The Dead could play slower and quieter than any other rock band I can think of. Ask any musician how tough it is to play slow tempos without losing energy. The ambling pace annoyed me as a teenager, but the older I get, the more sense the unhurried, conversational tone makes.
