Relix cover boys Umphrey's McGee (Dec/Jan 2005) also were anointed by Rolling Stone as "leading contenders for Phish's jam-smeared crown." This live set gives a sense as to why, demonstrating the band's prog-precision and high humor. Along with signature compositions "Uncle Wally" and "YYZ," this Fox Theatre performance presents two of the group's collective, semi-structured improvisational exercises: "Jimmy Stewart" and "Jazz Odyssey."
