Jam Chart for The Wedge (11 entries)

Date Song City Timing Notes
1993-02-03 Wedge Portland, ME 6:18 Strong debut version features a slinky and jazzy piano intro. Page solos nicely, with cool chords from Trey, who soon offers an energetic solo of his own. Page retakes control through an extended outro, which builds to a near peak. Must-hear for fans of "The Wedge."
1993-02-09 Wedge Rochester, NY 6:24 A modified, percussive intro provides a glimpse of the form the song will soon assume. A strong outro, featuring great work from Trey and Page, highlights an evolutionary marker in the development of this song.
1993-02-12 Wedge Poughkeepsie, NY 6:38 Another "Wedge," another intro. Here, Trey leads, with Page playing in support. This dynamic produces different soloing, featuring more Trey, and great, restrained Page. The band modulates intensity through a cool outro.
1993-08-20 Wedge Morrison, CO 5:43 Classic version popularized by its official release (Live Bait Vol. 6). Excellent full-band play featuring strong Mike and dynamic modulation. Textbook.
1995-06-07 Wedge Boise, ID 4:06 "The Wedge" reemerges to close a 135 show gap. Notable principally for the now-familiar Fish-driven intro, this compact version also features cool and confident play from Trey.
1996-10-29 Wedge Tallahassee, FL 4:59 Guest percussionist Karl Perazzo lends added pop to this powerful pre-"Remain in Light" version.
1997-11-29 Wedge Worcester, MA 6:32 Slow and deliberate show-opener, featuring that signature Fall 1997 sound. Cool keys give way to soaring Trey. Fish drives great syncopation and full-band play. Great dynamics, as the sound is textured and nuanced, producing subtle and musical shifts in intensity.
1999-08-01 Wedge Niigata, Japan 7:45 This great version moves from "Stash" teasing through to powerful Page soloing. Cut from a cool vibe, Trey's playing is inventive and on-point, with great modulation through the conclusion.
2012-12-31 Wedge New York, NY 9:04 Not only is "The Wedge" used to help pull off the golf gag, this NYE version is highly atypical in that it features lengthy and notable late-show jamming, playing that would remain unrivaled until July 20, 2014.
2014-07-20 Wedge Chicago, IL 14:29 At 5:45 the jam moves beyond the standard into medium intensity, rhythmic and mildly funky play. The funk builds, then the jam shifts to an uplifting melodic section which sounds similar to "The Wedge," before actually returning to the customary closing.
2016-09-02 Wedge Commerce City, CO 8:06 Swinging "Dick's" version with great trilling, "Stash" teasing, and inspired contributions from all four musicians.
All versions in a jam chart are recommended, but yellow rows indicate highly-recommended versions.
