Doc_Sportello Címon, this show deserves some love! Granted, thereís nothing monumental here. But thereís joy in precision. And this show has energy and precision right through. The band sounds so dialed in.

Ď96 is considered a transition year. For some thatís a way of calling í96 not very interesting. But thereís something exhilarating about transition. Trey in particular is playing with what I can only describe as a kind of shrug of the shoulders virtuosity at this point. Itís something to marvel at. His solo in Gumbo (with great support from Fish) somehow sounds both beyond compare and routine. Similar feel in Bag and Theme for me.

Great fun to listen to this show. 4 stars from me.
