Timing's are from the AUD's attained from phishows.com Let's hope for a SBD release at some point!


6:40 Page plays a riff that sets the theme for the next few minutes, dark theme, jam moves out of structure.
8:25 Classic phish, enter in major key for a few measures then back to dissonant sound. Mike really pushing the sound here.
9:30 Has some great interplay with Page and Trey, lots of tension.
9:50 Everyone is in on the groove. Everyone is playing a lot of notes....10:10 is probably when I'd throw up my arms and yell "Hell yes!"
11:00 Gordo takes over and changes the groove. This is when the jam separates itself from typical to epic phish jam.
12:00 Full minute of just settling into the groove. Page comes in after Trey with a very fitting keyboard. Fishman has a pretty awesome drumbeat going on here..very spacey, almost gets a little "third stone from the sun" feeling...but funkier.
13:10 Trey stops playing fast licks and just vamps on one note adding a lot of rhythm.
14:25 I just love the lick Trey starts to play. Great melody that he dances around for a few minutes. Pageís grand piano works perfectly with Gordo and Fishman completely locked in.
15:25 Fishman switches over to the snare and works the bass drum. Near 16:00 Fishman has a very nice line of fills.
16:20 Trey and Page have some great interplay, doing some classic phish jam two chord vamp. Page is particularly quick on the Grand Piano.
17:45 Is just funk. Page on clav, Trey doing rhythm section, Fishman keeping the ride cymbal steady as Mike just crushes his basslines.
18:50 Trey takes the effects off, Fishman drops into a

:20, love the work Mike is doing on the bass, bending notes, shit is so spacey

Overall, the jam is just one of those jams that puts a smile on your face. Like i said, itís spacey yet has an upbeat feel, very melodic, very rhythmic, everyone does their part.
