FunkyCFunkyDo I agree, in part, with @ucpete. In 2015, there was a defined, dramatic shift in the music and the "improvisational courage" that I speak of, and I think (know?) that came as a direct result of Fare Thee Well and Trey's committment to refining his chops and expanding his repertoire. But, I still can't help but believe that shift was sparked 4 years prior. That's when the seed was planted; it's growth was small but consistent. Although Storage Jam's ripples were only directly echoed within the last leg of Summer Tour 2011 (Gorge, Tahoe, Chicago), I think those 55 minutes of pure, raw, unhindered, and unexpected improvisation broke down a mental barrier of just how deep Phish could go again and into the future. It would take time to fully realize that depth, but I do believe it would not have played out the way it did without the Storage Jam.
