Hose_jam Review of the Tweezer

This jam really has five distinct sections (in my opinion), with a final Tweezer breakdown at the end.

Regular Tweezer Jam
4:44 Jam drops- Page on Grand Piano, Fishman on open hi-hat driving beat, Gordo thumping, Trey playing subtle rhythmic melodies.
8:12 Page goes to keyboard. Trey does some cool scratches with the wah, Gordon then puts on an effect.
9:40 Page unleashes the deep space effect.
10:25 Jam dissolves into space.

First jam:
11:45 Fishman enters with a drum beat. Heavy effects from Page and Trey, with Gordon dropping the meatball. Very cool ambient peak seemingly out of nowhere.
13:55 Jam has built with Trey rhythmically playing a riff and attacking the higher fretboard for sustained notes, extremely tasteful playing. Page echoes on the Grand Piano nicely.
15:20 Fishman drops into a nice beat on the toms. Trey plays a very dark heavily distorted riff. Mike drops in at 16:02 with the PEDAL. Initially Trey and Mike are both playing melodies but Trey sustains a note, Mike goes off, Fishman goes crazy on the fills, and Page builds the sound and Trey reenters at 17:00.
17:55 Jam fizzles into space.

Second Jam
19:30 Trey starts a simple strumming pattern with Page on the Grand piano. 20:55 Fishman comes in with a beat.Trey basically vamps rhythm as Page and Mike drive the jam
22:16 Trey comes in with solo.
23:10 Page/Trey interplay in this segment is top notch. Page lets out of a line of notes that Trey soon emulates. *23:23 TREY FIRES. Page lays on some organ to continue to build the jam.
24:35 Mike puts on an effect, Trey drops to some rhythm, Fishman switches up the beat. This next minute is some serious Phish jamming. Trey and Mike specifically show amazing chemistry here.

Third Jam
26:08 Jam slows up, Mike plays a riff and the rest of the band immediately respond and change on a dime to a two chord vamp. This leads into a stop/start segment. Gordon owns this segment by cleverly placing notes over the stop/start segment.
*27:41 Holy shit.
29:13 Holy shit again, the band can create energy at the drop of a hat.

Fourth Jam
30:25 Trey aggressively plays some chords out of the jam segment and Fishman does not hesitate to immediately drop the Tweezer beat. Page has better ideas and continues to jam with Trey quickly joining.
*31:15 Amazing Page/Fishman playing.
32:33 Fishman drops back into a beat, Trey does some reggae upstroke. This goes into another stop/start segment. 33:11 has another explosion of energy. This jam hits a major peak.

Second Tweezer Jam
34:55 Fishman and Trey both come back in with Tweezer theme. Lots of fun stop/start action here.
