    I've been listening to instrumental jam/chill/rock bands lately and would like some recommendations

    Something along the lines of Battles, Do Make Say Think, Don Caballero, Zechs Marquise, etc

    ??

    Sleep Terror... probably not your style but its tech-death/funk fusion type deal.

    Estradasphere will make you very happy.

    Then there's also, Gordian Knot, Secret Chiefs 3, Liquid Tension Experiment, Liquid Trio Experiment, Bell Orchestre, and Amiina. (Though, Amiina makes very soft music.)
    Without mentioning bands that have been mentioned already.

    Also, let me know if you'd be interested in instrumental Jazz recommendations. I'm a big Jazz fan.

    65daysofstatic is pretty epic.

    Also, By the End of Tonight and Tera Melos if you like faster, more melodic/chaotic instrumentals.

    rock and jam bands... hmmm

    first thing that came to mind was String Cheese Incident
    also, Keller Williams, Umphrey's Mcgee, Yonder Mountain String Band, Garaj Mahal, New Monsoon, Greyboy Allstars (Karl Denson? Hell ya), Fareed Haque Group, Sound Tribe Sector 9, The Detroit Experiment, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Band, and Tea Leaf Green.

    For live, FREE, recordings of most if not all of these bands, go to

    archive.org

    then click on live music section and search away. A great filter is using the popularity filter to your advantage, it sorts out all of the bad recordings.
     
  22. Frank Zappa's 1979 Sleep Dirt has got to be the close to the best instrumental album ever.

    I just bought his triple-album Shut Up 'n Play Yer Guitar and haven't listened to any of it yet.

    It isn't a whole album, but there are two really good instrumental songs at the end of this CD called "America instrumental" and "Summer rain instrumental."

    If you dig GSYBE, you should defiantly check out A silver Mount Zion and Set Fire To Flames. 2 by Bukowski, Agalloch's 'The White' Album is good if you're into folk stuff. Below the Sea, Drums and Tuba, Grails, Mogwai, Shelter Red , Russian Circles, Tides Within
