  • ZONKEY CD
    Item #: UYCD34
    Umphrey’s McGee has been arranging and performing original mashups live for over eight years. It was only a matter of when, not if, some of those innovative concoctions would find their way into a studio. And that when has arrived.

    UM is pleased to announce ZONKEY, an album of 12 unique mashups, conceived, arranged & executed by the band. ZONKEY is as seamless as it bizarre, playful as it is razor sharp. Bits and pieces of classic songs are culled from 40+ years of popular music from 70’s Reggae to 80's Pop to 90’s Metal and everywhere in between. From Radiohead mashed with Beck, The Weeknd with Fleetwood Mac, Talking Heads with Bob Marley, Metallica with Gorillaz….nothing is off limits.

    ZONKEY clearly pays homage to some of our favorite artists & songs. While we’ve tried to reproduce the spirit of the original compositions & recordings, we’ve also tried to have some fun with the structure as we’ve often combined seemingly dissimilar musical elements to create a new vibe altogether,” notes keyboardist Joel Cummins.

    Item #: UYCD27
    Fresh off the heels of Similar Skin, Umphrey's McGee dove head first into the famed Abbey Road Studios, tracking a staggering 10 songs in one day.

Inside the CD, you'll find a foldout poster featuring dozens of candid photos from the recording session as well as a long-form narrative detailing everything you didn't know you wanted to know, from soup to nuts: the song selection process, the "why" behind new arrangements, geeking out over classic recording gear, anecdotes from the marathon day, and the meaning of that badass album art.

  • Umphrey's McGee- Death by Stereo CD
    Item #: UYCD20
    "'Death By Stereo' is a lethal musical gumbo stewed by the band's seemingly telepathic six members. The album finds the "fluid and majestic" (Washington Post Express) sextet's feet firmly entrenched in hard-hitting rock while still exploring radical new territories: 'Sticky Fingers'-era Rolling Stones romp on "Wellwishers," Black Keys-style blues on "Domino Theory," and horns-infused 70s funk on "Booth Love." "Conduit" delivers the type of dual-guitar fireworks that Umphrey's has become known for and 'Miami Virtue' is an upbeat, kaleidoscopic blend of Phoenix and Pink Floyd."

    When Jake Cinninger took the stage as a member of Umphrey's McGee for the first time in September 2000, the recently disbanded Ali Baba's Tahini appeared to be a thing of the past.

    On July 12th, Ali Baba?s Tahini will release their fourth album, Living Room. The follow-up to the spontaneous Rockstars and Lawnmowers (2005) is the carefully crafted product of Cinninger and Karl Engelmann's collaborative songwriting. Get comfy, Living Room has room for everyone.

  • Umphrey's McGee- Mantis CD
    Item #: UYCD13
    Chicago?s Umphrey's McGee enters its second decade together with their most progressive, melodic and artistically cohesive album to date. The new album hits streets on Inauguration Day, January 20, 2009, when Mantis casts another Windy City family into the limelight. Over 2 years in the making, Mantis pushes the envelope in composition, arrangement and group interplay. In an Umphrey?s McGee first, the album offers 100% new material - a drastic change of pace for a band whose typical modus operandi is to work out the material live on-stage before recording studio versions.

    NOTE: Your Mantis CD will give you special access to the special Push website to get free content throughout 2009! See www.umphreys.com for more information about this exciting feature.

  • Umphrey's McGee- Jimmy Stewart 2007 - CD
    Item #: UYCD12
    EXTREMELY LIMITED RELEASE

    In June 2008, prog-rock powerhouse Umphrey's McGee has released Jimmy Stewart 2007, an ambitious double-live album comprised of some of the band's most inspired improvisations, sequenced into two seamless 70-minute "mixtapes."

    Several times during each live concert, Umphrey's McGee delves into the "Jimmy Stewart" creation process. They aim is to generate melody-rich, spontaneous compositions on-the-fly. As Umphrey's McGee's sound continues to evolve, each live performance is increasingly a showcase for their "Jimmy Stewart" approach to progressive improvisation which they utilize as a breeding ground for new material.

    Umphrey's is also a band always on the cusp of fresh technology and music distribution, and the trendsetting Umphrey's McGee Podcast serves up two 75-minute sets of live UM each month to its 20,000 subscribers. On June 10th 2008, the Podcast offered its 66th broadcast, a Jimmy Stewart 2007 companion piece of an extra CD's worth of material from the cutting room.

  • Umphrey's McGee- Live At The Murat CD
    Item #: UYCD11
    The ascension continues for Chicago?s Umphrey?s McGee, not only in terms of their commercial success but in creative accomplishment and instrumental achievement as well. Their performance on Live at the Murat (SCI Fidelity), the band?s first official live release, is as impressive as anything they?ve recorded to date, with the power and finesse, the yin and the yang, that have come to characterize their by-now classic material. Recorded in Indianapolis in April 2007 and produced by longtime ?sound caresser? and honorary seventh member Kevin Browning, Live at the Murat is innovative without being indulgent. It's exhilarating without losing control. Clearly, logging 120 gigs a year, ?live? is where UM lives.

  • Rockstars and Lawnmowers by Ali Baba's Tahini CD
    Item #: UYCD07
    Rock Stars and Lawnmowers is the most recent album from Ali Baba's Tahini, best known as the band Jake Cinninger was in before joining progressive rock band Umphrey's McGee.

    The album is the first since 1999 to feature the original lineup of Cinninger, Karl Engelmann, and Steve Krojniewski. Engelmann left the band in 1999 and the group split a year later.

    During the winter of 2004, Ali Baba's Tahini retreated to the North Carolina mountains to record the album over a one-week period. The recording contains a number of new songs as well as classic Ali Baba's Tahini concert songs that had yet to be recorded. It also features a song from Johnny Scroggs ("Veil"), who performs lead vocals on the track. The album was mastered by Cinninger and released a year later in 2005. Many of the new songs from the album are currently performed in concert by Umphrey's McGee.

    9. All Is Done
    10. Australian Lullaby (electric)
    11. Orfeo

    On the heels of the release of our archival documentary Reel To Real, we are pleased to share the original soundtrack from the film. Comprised of 11 tracks scanning the entire 18-plus year history of UM, this one covers a wide swath of ground. In addition new and old, studio and live Umphrey’s, six of the tracks are solo works from Brendan Bayliss and Jake Cinninger.

    Following the opening single "Gone for Good," an acoustic version of "Glory," performed entirely by Cinninger and featured in the penultimate scene of Reel To Real, makes its debut. Two versions of the film's main title "Australian Lullaby," written and performed by Bayliss are audio ambien (do not operate heavy machinery while listening). A rare acoustic "Plunger" is followed by lyrical analysis and contemplative yet humorous recollections about UM's original drummer Mike Mirro. Three tracks from Cinninger's Boondocks Studio check all the boxes from head banging metal to a Brian Eno inspired composition aimed at moving pictures. And an oldie but goodie, "Orfeo" from the band’s 1998 debut album Greatest Hits Vol. III caps off this eclectic offering.

    If you haven't seen the film, you can stream or download it in all its glory on Vimeo.
