Here’s what I’ve been thinking about.

Why does every professional band these days, no matter how traditional or progressive, feel it’s necessary to put in a jam-band like number?

It seems like we’re always subjected to a seemingly obligatory 10 to 15 minutes of noodling and doodling — which, although intended to appear spontaneous, now seems rather rehearsed and contrived. It sort of defeats the purpose. . . it doesn’t seem like the creative juices are flowing at all, but rather that the musicians are working hard to seem creative.

A lot of the time it’s entertaining, some times (at least to me) it’s downright boring.

Most of the time it just seems unnecessary.

What’s the deal?
