The band quickly clicks to create a chill groove, with Trey working a warm tone to solo atop steady bass, scattershot drumming, and excellent Page-propelled atmospherics. This, then, into extended trilling, which Trey distorts before breaking to assume a clean, bright line, which builds - to break - back into the jam's pulsing, Floyd-like vibe. Excellent.|
|2018-07-31||Del Valle, TX||18:46||Effects-laden grime coasts on the tail end of a type I jam. Mike leads a charge to D, which goes ignored at first, but this lays the bedrock for a patient and breathtakingly happy shift towards bliss territory roughly halfway through the jam as Page and then Trey finally follow. A hose jam builds from the ether thanks to whale call and a foundational groove from Mike, eventually reaching a sustained peak with multiple releases of tension in a shower of joy over Everything that is Right with the universe. A final chorus and then dissonant noise paves the way for a > "Disease".|
|2018-08-08||Camden, NJ||16:13||A multi-passage monstrosity grows its sea legs out of the Delaware River as the band walks this "Everything's Right" around the corner and back. Up top, dark minor-mode jamming is propelled thanks to Page' synth and stellar bass work from Mike; this eventually paves the path to a happy and fluid bliss jam. A second key change first heads for grimy Leslie-driven plinko, until Trey steps up with whale call and a second prominent bliss peak unfolds thanks to Fish's dynamic improvisation. An abrupt return to the final chorus winds down to close out the tune and, in turn, the set.|
|2018-10-16||Albany, NY||13:03||Retains an understated intensity throughout and after 7:30 takes on a graceful, ethereal feel, coalescing at 9:30 with a truly beautiful sequence of soaring guitar and deep impact bass. Around 11:30, a Page-led groove is introduced which brings things to a close with a slick -> "Cities".|
|2018-12-30||New York, NY||15:30||Subtle, magisterial, and grand, the jam, bright as DMT (if, in actuality, colored with "WTU?" DNA), slowly builds, gently rising more than gaining intensity, the band riding Trey's wave of sound which crests to swell to become play notably restrained and pretty. This, then, into a perfect > for "Plasma."|
|2019-06-23||Columbia, MD||15:52||Trey incites a terrific groove/theme right around 5:40, soon matched by Mike, and bass-heavy play dominates before Trey again steps to the fore, his soloing echoed by Page, great on acoustic and electric keys. Play then makes for a stark, ever-welcome minimalist milieu, not quite dark (but getting there) before Trey finds a lilting melody which like a wave the band rides before cresting to cool to a very cool and somewhat protracted passage of introspective improvisation. (Maybe block out the "still waiting" quotes and lock in on the splashing Fish towards the version's culmination.)|
