Blues Traveler was formed in Princeton, New Jersey in 1987. They are known for their extensive use of segues in live performances, and were considered a key part of the re-emerging jam band scene of the 1990s, spearheading the H.O.R.D.E. touring music festival.

Blues Traveler, the eponymous debut album from Blues Traveler, was released on A&M Records in 1990. The album features "jam structures on basic blues riffs" focused around the harmonica playing of band leader John Popper, which writer William Ruhlmann said gave the band a more focused sound than that of the Grateful Dead.

They are amongst the greatest "Jam Bands" of the last 35 years... Here is t great song, which really displays how tight the band was... "Sweet Talking Hippie" shows off the bands ability to effortlessly transition, mid song. I love this tunes tempo shifts...
