Stones as a jam band

I'd love to hear more jams. they do it and probably love it, why not have more of the element of improvisation, and stretch out a little.
good for everybody, Mick can go on a harp solo, he's good at that.

Midnight Rambler and CYHMK certainly are the greatest jam live songs!

We don't get enough of the jamming, that is for sure. Everything is so planned out. Would love to see rehersals or any place they were just winging it.
MR is the one regular jam but any other improvisation is just for a few seconds.
The Stones could be the greatest jam band in the world!

Yes and bring back Out of Control. That jam in the middle leading to the end is just fantastic!

I think Mick said it best, probably speaking on behalf of the band when he said he just "didn't have that much jam."

Totally Agree.

I was just going to post this verbateum.

MR was always strictly tripartate and therefore never a real jam in my book. Hampton's Imagination reaching the ten minute mark was the only real live jam the Stones ever did IMVHO.

I think you've hit the nail on the head. Case closed.

More jamming would be nice. It would probably mess up the perfectly synched light cues, which I think would actually be a good thing. Less Vegas, more rock 'n' roll!

Yeah onnya, besides the lighting, Mick would miss all of his dance queues.

How long a song is doesn't make it a real jam. I would say that Stop Breakin Down on Exile is a good jam song yet its only 5 or so minutes. I think the Stones are at their best when jamming loosely.

And the lack of jamming is another reason why I hate today's stadium shows, because the lighting and timing of everything limits jamming. In areans they still become slaves to the lighting and all that but not as much as the stadium shows. I wish they would just go out there, let it all hang out and play rock n roll without worrying about carmeras, special effects, lighting and all that.

Hound Dog, my sentiments EXACTLY! I have never been fortunate enough to see the Stones this way, and that's when they are at their best. It will be one thing I will regret if I don't get to experience that before I die.

Wasn't looking too good, but I was feeling real well.

yeah! we're talking about the essence of the Rolling Stones ..
that thing they do!

Hound Dog: it's not the length but the fact that it was spontaneous, took off and just escalated into this epic jam. The fact that it was by far the longest version of the tour merely testifies that.

But I agree with T&A. The Stones are masters of form and therefore BEYOND the jam.

Sway is a great example, they should let that song flow and take off. Let go of the reigns and play the f*ck out of that song! smiling smiley

Bring back "Craw-Dad" or "Mona" for the B-stage! I'm sure they stretched out many '63 sets with 9 minute Bo Diddley jams. Something that trance-inducing might be best for a theater/club gig.

watts fan--Hell yes!!!!!! you are right on. they can't do anything off the playbook I guess ...unless its at theater/club shows...

Another reason why this should be the last stadium tour!

Yeah, there's so much great jamming by them on studiobootlegs it's a pity they don't do it live more. For example this excellent version of LRR could've been stretched easily to 10 min superb jam:

Thanks for that clip, Hurriganes, that was great! So cool to see these giants relax for a few minutes and crank out some superb blues. The last minute when Jagger plays the harp in som sort of duet with Clapton, great! A pity they edited the song heavily for Flashpoint.
