Jam Chart for The Mango Song (10 entries)

Date Song City Timing Notes
1989-03-30 Mango Burlington, VT 6:48 Debut.
1992-04-19 Mango Santa Cruz, CA 7:00 Oh HELL yeah! Among the earliest versions to jam.
1999-07-24 Mango East Troy, WI 7:03 > in from "Tweezer. The band compensates for a botched and sloppy composed section by seriously stretching the ending segment (-> to "Jam" according to the Setlist) in a largely "Type I" manner that is upbeat, and with great guitar playing by Trey in his style typical of 1999. > to the debut of "The Happy Whip And Dung Song."
2000-05-22 Mango New York, NY 9:40 Essentially straightforward, but the band nicely extends the ending jam segment by a few minutes.
2000-06-09 Mango Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, Japan 9:15 Ending jam segment stretches the limits of the basic jam with some nice rhythmic variation, but still stays "in bounds."
2000-06-30 Mango Hartford, CT 12:13 > in from "Halley's Comet." Great version where the band explores and improvises with the basic "Mango" theme in a greatly extended outro jam that transitions to "Twist."
2000-09-17 Mango Columbia, MD 18:19 > in from a great "Theme From The Bottom" -> "Dog Log" pairing. Following an extended, straightforward outro, this improvisational version morphs into a rhythmic and pulsing groove that grows increasingly effects laden and eery, before transitioning to "Free."
2000-09-27 Mango Englewood, CO 9:25 > in from "Ghost." Similar to 5/22/00 where the band extends the ending by several minutes, but sticks to "The Mango Song" melody.
2010-10-26 Mango Manchester, NH 8:02 -> in from "Ghost." Straightforward but intensely played version that transitions neatly to "Weekapaug."
2013-07-26 Mango George, WA 8:43 While mostly straightforward, there's some extra "Mango" in this solid version with great Page/Trey syncopated jamming.
