    Dont forget the jam bands of old. Santana, Pink Floyd, the Wailers, Big Brother, Jefferson Airplane. These folks used to jam with as much intenstity as the Grateful Dead. In my mind I believe Santana actually popularized improvisational music before the Dead made it big. Santana was the first real "jam band"

    definaly the dead
    phish
