Hugh_Mongus This show contains some amazing moments. Hilarious Banter, Creative Teases, Audience Participation and Superb Playing. Many talk about the 2/23/94 show, however I feel that the quality of both audio/playing is superior.

Out of all the Standards like, 'Take the A-train' 'Jump Monk' ‘Donna Lee' 'St Thomas' etc, I think ‘Sentimental Mood’ was my favorite.

Great cover of Bela Fleck's 'Blues for Gordon’ which is absolutely beautiful. Turnaround was probably the most Blues influenced song featuring Trey on some gorgeous licks. Donna Lee outro also has a great little Blues segment. ‘Jamie’s Crying’ pretty much sets the tone for whats next (‘So What’) very chaotic (In a good way) and impressive; there is a wild part in the middle where the song ventures into a scary/dark/mysterious section similar to how phish began jamming in 94. Jump Monk has a similar section to ‘So What’ that is very chaotic with a variety of plucking and repetitive, accelerating notes, theres one part where Trey makes an effect and some guy in the Audience goes ‘Yeaaahh then Ohhhh hohoho’ absolutely classic trey summoning dark and horrid sounds giving a range of emotion from the audience.

It Seems like these BadHat performances helped Trey/Fish transform Phish later in the year as they began playing longer more experimental takes on songs like Bowie,Tweezer and Antelope. Jamie Masefield is a wizard and his originally written songs are fantastic, namely ‘Airmail Special’
