On behalf of the users of the forum, the current members of the “Jam of the Year” committee are pleased to announce the 2021 “Jam of the Year” bracket:

JotY 2021 Bracket
JotY 2021 Bracket

After an open call for seeding, the members of the forum have assembled a 64 song bracket of the community’s favorite jams from Phish’s 2021 summer and fall tours.

Each week we’ll be making our way around the bracket discussing and voting on the top jams from 2021. Voting is open to all users and will take place in weekly listening / discussion threads on the forum. Turn up the volume and join the listening journey as we relive the highlights of 2021!


“We hope you have a good time!”

kidrob I’m here to recommend the shoreline cities as a sleeper candidate that should make its way to the elite 8

mcgrupp81 For me, the conversation starts and ends with 8/6/21 Simple. It’s one of my favorite jams of 3.0/4.0.

DiscoStu 3 things…
2. How can you pit Ruby Waves vs Tweezer in round one!?!
3. No 8/8 Makisupa???
, comment by Surrisi
Surrisi I vote for the following:

8/1 Alpharetta Tweezer;
8/4 Nashville Mr. Completely;
10/16 San Francisco Frankie Says; and
10/30 Las Vegas Your Pet Cat.

IMO Frankie Says might be a sleeper to slide down Knuckle Bone Broth Avenue to a win in the Paulie Roots! regional bracket.

KebsRolez Is there going to be a livephish playlist that includes all the jams? Or does one already exist?

johnnyd So awesome. One of my favorite crowd-source phish projects ...

If anyone wants to vote, do so in the forum threads, linked in the blog post.
I believe playlists exist there too.

I_Run_OUTOFCONTROL The bracket theme and graphics are amazing, but even my young eyes struggle with the small font. Also, no seeds next to the songs?

Mshow96 Try opening the bracket image in imgur or in its own tab where you ought to be able to zoom.

It has been suggested that showing the seeds somehow prejudices voting. Right or wrong, we’ve opted not to include the seedings on the bracket. You can find the complete list Here
