Jam Chart for shows in the city of Cincinnati, OH (31 entries)

Date Song City Timing Notes
1992-12-03 SOAMelt Cincinnati, OH 9:55 Another creative and different '92 take on the "SOAM" jam. And being that's it's 1992, there is sick shredding taboot!
1992-12-03 Antelope Cincinnati, OH 15:02 Some cool "Cities" teases in the intro (last performance 9/13/88). The jam starts with a brief jam on Santana's "Gypsy Queen," then breaks into several distinct sections of perhaps not beautiful, but VERY exploratory jamming. Returns to "Antelope" with several peaks and Trey shredding.
1992-12-03 Weekapaug Cincinnati, OH 7:15 Although essentially straightforward, it has a cool quiet section, then atypical melodies from Trey which serve to crank up the tension as the jam builds to a frothy peak.
1993-08-06 YEM Cincinnati, OH 15:55 Mike is HOT in this version, despite the short B&D. "Tequila" tease and a -> to "Cocaine" in the jam segment.
1993-08-06 Cocaine Cincinnati, OH 1:05 -> in from "YEM." A jam on "Cocaine" is sandwiched in "YEM" and precedes the vocal jam. -> back to "YEM."
1993-08-06 YEM Cincinnati, OH 2:31 -> in from "Cocaine." "YEM" VJ includes "Cocaine" teasing and "Tweezer" lyrics and -> to "Halley's."
1993-08-06 Slave Cincinnati, OH 8:14 First time played in 241 shows. Serious tension/anticipation building early on in the jam, making the release glorious.
1994-06-21 My Friend Cincinnati, OH 8:08 The jam includes a nice little tease/jam on Rick Derringer's "Rock And Roll, Hoochie Koo" (which sounds similar to Led Zeppelin's "Moby Dick").
1994-06-21 SOAMelt Cincinnati, OH 15:02 The jam starts into a tense, exploratory groove before launching into a stunning, melodic Mike/Trey duet. At 12:00, the tension and power return, but the jam doesn't return to "SOAM" proper until 14:00.
1994-06-21 Esther Cincinnati, OH 8:39 Mike mows everyone down on this bass-centric version. 1994 is a great year for "Esther," and here is one reason why. Page's and Trey's solos smoke, but it's Mike's powerful playing that distinguishes this version, not a song one normally associates with Mike.
1994-06-21 Hood Cincinnati, OH 13:01 The jam has spots of improvisational playing, including an unusual and dark section from 6:55 - 8:00, and a nicely trilling peak.
1998-11-14 Tweezer Cincinnati, OH 16:30 Strong, above-average version worth your time to check out.
1998-11-14 Bowie Cincinnati, OH 15:47 A very good version, especially given the year, when "Bowie" was well past its improvisational peak. Gathering power as it progresses, the "Type I" jam builds on classic "Bowie" fundamentals - dark under and overtones, mounting tension, and strong musicianship by all four.
1999-12-03 Possum Cincinnati, OH 11:47 Sort of a call and response between Trey and Page that becomes more of a Page-led jam. A very different, relaxed vibe.
1999-12-03 LxL Cincinnati, OH 16:21 Departs from "Limb" proper around 8:00 and heads into a dark, subdued jam during which Trey plays keyboard for a good portion. Not to everyone's liking, but more exploratory than most versions. Returns to "Limb" to conclude.
1999-12-04 SOAMelt Cincinnati, OH 18:11 The jam begins with a haunting, scary groove over the basic structure. At 9:30, there's a transition segment with standout playing by Page and Mike. Then at 10:45 Trey hits the keyboards in a weird sonic combo. Released on Live Bait Vol. 7.
2000-09-20 Wolfman's Cincinnati, OH 13:47 Extended release, almost a groove-based hose jam emerges from the post-funk section. Good '00 sounds near the end.
2000-09-20 It's Ice Cincinnati, OH 14:32 Extended jam that is markedly different from the typical Page-led jam. A spacey, rambling jam, but worth a listen. Unfinished.
2003-02-21 DwD Cincinnati, OH 17:12 Nothing too deep, just a nice "feel good" jam that bops along with sprinkles of improvisation from Trey and Page before returning to "DwD" to close.
2003-02-21 Boogie On Cincinnati, OH 6:47 Breakdown jamming.
2003-02-21 Mike's Cincinnati, OH 14:40 The jam begins with a semi-dark tone, includes some nice Trey/Page interplay, and Trey makes it more interesting by varying the melodic lines away from standard "Mike's.". Around 10:00, the jam settles into more spacey, effects-heavy play, where it remains until a -> "Free."
2003-02-22 Weekapaug Cincinnati, OH 7:57 Good -> in from "Piper," this is the first ever stand-alone "Weekapaug." The jam is spirited, exploratory, and includes a dark, tension-filled section from 4:40 - 5:30 that makes the ensuing return to "Weekapaug" all the sweeter.
2003-02-22 WotC Cincinnati, OH 19:57 Extended "Type I" jam with building energy.
2003-02-22 Tube Cincinnati, OH 11:31 Great interplay between Page and Trey and an extended guitar-led jam. > to "Bathtub Gin".
2003-02-22 Gin Cincinnati, OH 25:47 Intense and highly improvisational jam with more of a rocking, propulsive and edgy sentiment, and in this way similar to the '94 - '95 "Gins." In the final minutes, the band toys with the "Gin" theme in a dark, twisted manner.
2003-02-22 Bowie Cincinnati, OH 17:00 Lots of good exploration in this intense version with a little lull midway. Fish is really excellent.
2009-11-20 BOTT Cincinnati, OH 5:35 Very quick tempo on this short, funky version. -> out of "Light" and -> into "Possum."
2009-11-21 R&R Cincinnati, OH 16:13 Very good, funky version with some nice Page/Trey interplay. Extended spacey ending.
2011-06-05 Fee Cincinnati, OH 7:18 A serene outro, similar to 7/29/03. > into "Backwards Down the Number Line."
2012-06-22 KDF Cincinnati, OH 11:21 Includes an eerie outro full of creepy effects that sounds like it was taken right out of the IT festival and transitions (>) to an equally menacing "Twist."
2012-06-22 Twist Cincinnati, OH 14:13 At 6:15, the jam breaks from "Twist," taking on a haunting, spectral tone that grows increasingly powerful. The jam settles briefly, then gains energy and gets more upbeat before winding down and > to "Halley's Comet."
