Despite recording for Dave Matthews' ATO label and enjoying a good deal of success on the jam band circuit, My Morning Jacket is, beneath that sumptuous veil of reverb (lifted somewhat on their latest, "Z," revealing refined features and high cheekbones), essentially a classic rock band, and a very good one at that -- when they noodle, it is in the style not of Trey Anastasio, but of Jimmy Page. On "Dondante," the closing track on "Z" and available here as an exclusive download, singer Jim James reaches skyward toward Jeff Buckley.
