Redman and Neville Sit In With Umphrey's In Denver

Chicago sextet Umphrey's McGee's relationship with sax wiz Joshua Redman dates back to a brief Northeast run he joined the band on back in 2004. Since that time the pairing has worked its magic a number of times over the year leading to last night's UM show at the Fillmore Auditorium in Denver, where Redman sat in with the group for the entire second set and encore.

Dumpstaphunk opened last night's show with keyboardist Ivan Neville guesting with UM on the fitting "Dump City" that ended the first set. The first set also saw Umphrey's weave the rare instrumental "Dear Lord" within "Nemo." When the Chicago rockers came back for set two they were joined by Redman for a "Der Bluten Kat" > "Amble On" > "Der Bluten Kat" sequence. "Der Bluten Kat" saw guitarist Jaden Carlson replace Brendan Bayliss. The second set continued with "Wife Soup," "Ringo" and a debut cover of Weather Report's "River People." Redman and UM concluded the show with a "1348" encore.
