Jam Chart for Mexico (18 entries)

Date Song City Timing Notes
2016-01-15 Sand Riviera Maya, Quintana Roo, Mexico 12:12 Strong peaking action in the first jam and then some growly, staccato funk in the second segment, which ultimately -> into "Ghost" stupendously.
2016-01-16 Cities Riviera Maya, Quintana Roo, Mexico 13:18 After a stretch of perfunctory versions, "Cities" has now gone four for its last four. A laid back tropical vibe yields to a stormy, foreboding jam, before the sun peeks through the clouds and the -> Light grows brighter.
2016-01-16 Hood Riviera Maya, Quintana Roo, Mexico 14:18 The early part of the jam includes great interplay and soloing by Trey. The gradual, but deliberate and well executed peak reminds us that a strong but plain ol' "Harry" is pretty spectacular in his own right.
2016-01-17 Moma Riviera Maya, Quintana Roo, Mexico 8:30 One of the few recent renditions of "Moma" that (fittingly) sails to new seas. There's some especially spry, melodic playing in the opening segment that gives way to a punchy, funky jam led by the rhythm section (with Mike Meatballs) in support of Trey's adept use of his MuTron *and* Echoplex and Page's expert use of his clav. Unfinished and -> "Saw It Again."
2016-01-17 DwD Riviera Maya, Quintana Roo, Mexico 19:12 A very solid version in which the jam initially breaks away into some dark and low intensity playing. The mood brightens, then Page starts playing samples from "Shipwreck." After several minutes, the guys abandon ship, ending the jam on a high point with jubilant, celebratory playing.
2016-01-17 Roggae Riviera Maya, Quintana Roo, Mexico 9:36 Compared to the preceding two jam chart versions, this one reveals a third and new approach to "Roggae," as this one breaks into a swinging, blues-infused jam, accentuated by some guitar effects, but less than in Dick's '15. Strong Mike and Fish help bring this excellent version to a powerful peak.
2016-01-17 C&P Riviera Maya, Quintana Roo, Mexico 15:05 The initial jamming is less rocking than most, but what it lacks in intensity, it makes up for with more melodic variation and synced-up playing. The latter part of the jam takes on a genuinely chilling tone with "Shipwreck" quotes, eerie effects, and power drill all thrown into the mix, as if to accompany the arrival of a ghostly ship on the horizon. > to "Farmhouse".
2016-01-17 Slave Riviera Maya, Quintana Roo, Mexico 10:29 A great version in which the Page and Mike stick mostly to the primary beat, while Trey adds off-beat color. As the intensity builds, Trey jumps mostly to the primary beat, providing power and grace.
2017-01-13 Wolfman's Riviera Maya, Quintana Roo, Mexico 12:36 Although it follows a familiar trajectory, this strong version luxuriates in the funk, before flipping the switch and peaking in celebratory good form. Trey really brings it on quite nicely.
2017-01-13 Fuego Riviera Maya, Quintana Roo, Mexico 19:53 After settling into some quieter musing, the jam takes on a percussive sense, and proceeds to build to a Trey-led, rocking peak. Gradually settling down, the jam transitions to a strong "Caspian."
2017-01-13 Caspian Riviera Maya, Quintana Roo, Mexico 9:37 > from a superb "Fuego". Trey's trilling grows nasty and dissonant at times, and Page hops on the clavinet to help lead the band into a dark and low-key groove. Fish does some fine work throughout.
2017-01-13 Twist Riviera Maya, Quintana Roo, Mexico 9:53 Floating in on the waves of a powerful "Prince Caspian" -> and staying in G, the echoing "Twist" intro leads to a tropical and topical "Tequila" jam before sliding seamlessly into "Seven Below."
2017-01-13 Seven Below Riviera Maya, Quintana Roo, Mexico 11:17 Awesome, melodic play from Trey, and we're only 2:40 in. The jam continues to impress, with Trey in total control, his precise, cerebral work matched by Mike, who also takes some seriously strong runs. Fish, of course, is great. There's super synth from Page. And Trey (7:00) introduces an incredibly cool theme, which the band shapes to its seemingly logical conclusion, ending a dulcet "suite" before > for "Golgi Apparatus."
2017-01-14 CDT Riviera Maya, Quintana Roo, Mexico 12:49 Super first set closer, which, in no small measure, soaks up the spirit of "IT's" (8/3/2003) rhythmic, pulsing soul. Breaking from "CDT" around 5:20, the jam melts into a focused passage of metrical rhythm, before brightening considerably, with all four musicians contributing equally. Trey's spirited solo, rich with sustain and effect, is complimented by great play from Page, before the version returns to "CDT" proper.
2017-01-14 Meatstick Riviera Maya, Quintana Roo, Mexico 11:34 This version's outro is much more musically productive than the typical and includes a "C&P" tease from Trey.
2017-01-14 Winterqueen Riviera Maya, Quintana Roo, Mexico 10:14 The "Prince of Music" neglects a verse but shrugs the flub and sets forth to shape one of the finest versions to date. The jam quickly assumes a quiet, delicate form, informed by great play from Mike. Trey's playing is patient and melodic, colored by customarily great fills from Page. The version skips along atop Fish's steady beat, with Trey building intensity via means of measured sustain and perfectly-placed notes, before working the surrounding space to a resounding peak.
2017-01-14 Mercury Riviera Maya, Quintana Roo, Mexico 15:15 After a strong composed section, the band crosses the bridge confident and assured, entering a jam anchored by great play from Mike and Fish. Trey adds much by way of layered texture and nuanced grace, before straight-forward soloing, colored with great fills from Page, builds into a passage of percussive and echo-altered sound. A cool > introduces yet another white-hot "Light."
2017-01-14 Light Riviera Maya, Quintana Roo, Mexico 15:41 The typical "Light" jam takes goes mildly dissonant, before shifting to some funk/rock action. This percussive section, with excellent playing led by Fish and Page, moves further and further away from "Light" proper, before eventually settling into a solid cool-down jam in the final few minutes.
