Jam Chart for Waves (13 entries)

Date Song City Timing Notes
2002-12-31 Waves New York, NY 10:30 Debut. Jam section features soaring guitar soloing and great complimentary piano from Page. Nice Page led outro jam after the final verse.
2003-08-02 Waves Limestone, ME 20:54 While average at first, the jam eventually dissolves into 10 minutes of haunting, pulsing space that is highly improvisational. A soundscape more than music that, when combined with Kuroda's lights, must have been other worldly.
2003-11-28 Waves Uniondale, NY 12:47 Long intro. Quite intense, jarring and distorted towards the ending.
2004-06-20 Waves Saratoga Springs, NY 16:00 Although the jam between verses is standard "Waves" fare, the band moves into an excellent 7 minute plus jam following the final verse that is rhythmic and upbeat, with multiple movements and "Maze" teases.
2004-08-11 Waves Mansfield, MA 10:57 One of the best played standard versions of 2.0.
2009-06-10 Waves Knoxville, TN 11:21 This is a very well-played version with a full length "Waves" jam. 3 minute outro jam leads to transition to "ASIHTOS."
2011-05-27 Waves Bethel, NY 13:51 Fantastic playing by Trey in the jam proper. Beautiful, lush and serene outro jam. In many ways the polar opposite of the haunting outro from "IT." Transitions to a solid "Prince Caspian."
2011-08-15 Waves Chicago, IL 12:09 "Waves" jam is intense and good, but following the final verse, the band breaks into a nice, snappy rocking jam that segues -> masterfully into "Undermind."
2012-06-28 Waves Noblesville, IN 12:25 Delicate and beautifully played at first, the jam has growing intensity, and then leaves the "Waves" ranch altogether with several movements that skirt around the perimeter of "Waves" proper. Unfinished with > to "Bug."
2013-07-26 Waves George, WA 9:54 A great straightforward version of "Waves" provides a similar uplifting and spirit raising boost as a strong "Hood" or "Divided Sky" does. The soaring jam and delicate outro in this fine version from the Gorge underscores this point.
2013-10-25 Waves Worcester, MA 12:44 The second jam swells to blissful heights once, recedes, then builds to a Freedom Rock peak, finally crashing into Carini.
2015-07-22 Waves Bend, OR 11:29 Patient, confident, wonderful type-I version with a sustained crest that recedes swiftly into space.
2017-07-23 Waves New York, NY 11:15 A delicate but somewhat perfunctory customary jam is followed by an outro jam which shifts from soothing piano play to more dissonant, eery outer space exploration.
All versions in a jam chart are recommended, but yellow rows indicate highly-recommended versions.
