Sugar Shack was poetically stretched out a little, perhaps avenging the slaughter of it during an off-night on summer tour (I forget which show)
Tweezer > Sparks is a smooth, naturally occurring segue
Light > Party Time is also a smooth, naturally occurring segue, and Party Time is stretched out a bit
Yes, there are type II jams in this show, hence the rave reviews. I didn’t hear anything in any of the jams that really stood out as “must hear” / noteworthy. Mostly deep muddy techno-funk, delay (echo) Moo-Tron type stuff which is quite fun and danceable and enjoyable of course. It’s just all a bit effects-laden and becoming somewhat homogeneous and predictable at this point. Golden Age and Light are clearly the new go-to jam vehicles, but after hearing so many similar ones, they are blending together for me. That’s just me. Remember, my goal here is to cull out “must hear” magic moments…. And I didn’t hear any.
On a light note – I can’t recall exactly where – a “super fan” can be heard yelling “DON’T PLAY THE F*CKIN’ MARIMBA LUMINA!!”. Chuckle.
