Do not miss every minute of this "Anatomy of a Jam" by Amar Sastry, it's brilliant. And Jon Fishman also loved it; check out an image of his Facebook post about it here on twitter.

Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed over $2 million to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
1) The ridiculous improvised transition from Halley's > Tweeprise during the Island tour. The jam section went Fm > Gm > Am > Bm > C#m > Dm > Tweezer Reprise.
2) Background on Snootable Sunshine, the epic prog tune that Nancy wrote for specifically for Phish after IDK and Halley's became staples in their catalog. When Trey first heard SS, he said something like "Well we couldn't possibly improve on your version!" Which seemed like a cordial way of saying that the band had no interest in playing it.
Super thanks to the author of this; I'm woke.
I find that lifting the curtain with Phish doesn’t necessarily take away the magic. Because after all it’s incredible that anyone could efficiently communicate on the level they do.
