Blues Traveler is an American jam band from Princeton, New Jersey.
While Blues Traveler is best known among fans for their improvisational live shows, the general public is most familiar with the group from their fourth studio album Four.
Blues Traveler's subsequent releases were not as wildly successful as the quintuple platinum sales of Four, though the band has maintained a loyal fanbase from the beginning of their career.

A New York-based blues-rock quartet formed in 1988 by singer/harmonica player John Popper, guitarist Chan Kinchla, bassist Bobby Sheehan, and drummer Brendan Hill, Blues Traveler was part of a revival of the extended jamming style of '60s and '70s groups like the Grateful Dead and Led Zeppelin.
Blues Traveler's aptly named fourth album, Four, released in September 1994, at first looked like a sales disappointment, but it rebounded in 1995 when "Run-Around," a single taken from it, became the group's first chart hit.
As the group prepared the follow-up to Four, Blues Traveler released the live double-album Live From the Fall in the summer of 1996.

Blues Traveler is a band that has gone through enormous growing pains since it first burst onto the scene in 1990 with its self-titled debut.
And perhaps it was those growing pains and the stress from the continual touring and recording schedule, that ultimately lead to the most serious growing pain of all: the 1999 death of original bassist Bobby Sheehan of a drug overdose, during a self-imposed hiatus from touring.
So for Blues Traveler, it was soul searching and driving and diving ever deeper to find out why they all got into rock and roll on the first place.

Though Blues Traveler's 1990 debut gets docked points for having foisted on the world a "jam band" scene whose white funk-boogie reprised some of the worst excesses and stifling professionalism of '70s rock, it's hard to write the album off as simply a bunch of aimless displays of improvisational chops.
If you were HOOKED on Blues Traveler because of their radio friendly hits, you certainly owe it to yourself to explore the roots of this excellent band.
Blues Traveler could have called this album "Live from the Studio." That's how much energy there is on this album.

The members of Blues Traveler, new and old, still play better than they write songs, but there's no denying that the group's indefatigable spirit remains engaging.
On Bridge, they're still traveling down the long and winding improvisational road, with most of the tracks averaging around five minutes in length (as is true with most of their studio albums).
It may sound different, but all the aspects of what Blues Traveler represents from lyrics to musicianship, is still there.
