There isn’t nearly enough space here to recap the extensive, colorful, and confusing history of Atlanta’s granddaddy of all things jam, Col. Bruce Hampton, who now adds “Ret.” to his moniker. But from his 1969 emergence as the leader of the ahead-of-its-time Hampton Grease Band through stints with a wildly diverse set of curiously named outfits, including the Late Bronze Age, the Codetalkers, the Fiji Mariners, the Quark Alliance, and, most notoriously, the Aquarium Rescue Unit, his idiosyncratic influence has been felt by every major roots/jam musician who has emerged from the Peach State.
