Jam Chart for the 29th of November (23 entries)

Date Song City Timing Notes
1995-11-29 Reba Nashville, TN 15:27 Almost two months removed from Shoreline's speedy "Reba," the band again takes flight, whipping through the composed section at warp speed. The ensuing jam, while metered, does not relent, with passionate, inspired Trey leading the way, while focused, full-band play is infused with great syncopation and rich melodic variation.
1995-11-29 Timber Ho Nashville, TN 8:31 Set II opener. Unusual intro. Intense with ferocious percussion. Page jumps to the B-3 briefly to provide an unusual and chilling effect. Multiple movements in this incredible, jarring jam that will rattle your skull. > to "Sparkle."
1995-11-29 Possum Nashville, TN 17:20 Extended, percussive intro, almost like a "Bowie." Soaring, multiple peak jam with awesome Trey and Fish.
1995-11-29 Taste That Surrounds Nashville, TN 7:58 With Bela Fleck on banjo. This is a fantastic version; the banjo is a perfect addition for an intense, rhythmically complex, song like "Taste."
1995-11-29 Slave Nashville, TN 11:22 Bela Fleck on banjo. This is a fantastic version, with Bela and Trey pairing together incredibly well.
1996-11-29 Maze Daly City, CA 12:26 There is a really powerful psychedelic aspect to these '96 versions, and this one is a fine example.
1996-11-29 Simple Daly City, CA 13:38 No mini percussion kit here. Instead, Trey hits on a theme that the band jumps on and rocks. Wonderful version, remarkably different from most. -> to "Sparks."
1996-11-29 YEM Daly City, CA 27:38 Long jam segment; Trey broke a string.
1997-11-29 Wedge Worcester, MA 6:32 Slow and deliberate show-opener, featuring that signature Fall 1997 sound. Cool keys give way to soaring Trey. Fish drives great syncopation and full-band play. Great dynamics, as the sound is textured and nuanced, producing subtle and musical shifts in intensity.
1997-11-29 Foam Worcester, MA 11:45 No free-form improvisation like a big "Ghost" or "Tweezer," but within a self-imposed, rigorous construct, there is a hell of a lot of musical creativity going on in this characteristically '97-style stretched-out version.
1997-11-29 Runaway Jim Worcester, MA 58:49 Longest single Phish jam to date. Contains many different sections, and has been nicknamed the "Jim Symphony." Contains a thrilling "Weekapaug" jam.
1998-11-29 Theme Worcester, MA 11:00 Very fine soloing by Trey and great interplay with Page on this solid, straightforward version.
1998-11-29 LxL Worcester, MA 10:52 Fierce version that ends with a very cool jam and masterful segue into "Catapult."
1998-11-29 Simple Worcester, MA 20:40 The jam swiftly breaks from the melodic and blissful standard to a high-power and dissonant one.
1998-11-29 Possum Worcester, MA 3:36 "Possum" -> "Wipeout" -> "Possum." 30 second "Wipeout" jam occurs at the beginning of the "Possum" jam.
1998-11-29 Wipe Out Worcester, MA 0:30 -> in from "Possum." 30 second "Wipeout" jam occurs at the beginning of the "Possum" jam. -> back to "Possum."
1998-11-29 Possum Worcester, MA 4:10 -> in from "Wipeout" to return to the standard "Possum" jam.
1998-11-29 Gin Worcester, MA 18:25 A soaring, straightforward jam evolves into beautiful ambient space before before building into a rocking and funky groove.
1998-11-29 YEM Worcester, MA 23:54 FUNKASAURUS! (No B&D.)
2003-11-29 Julius Philadelphia, PA 10:11 Has some really cool riffs from Trey throughout that are unusual, as well as some nice low intensity playing.
2003-11-29 Twist Philadelphia, PA 17:17 Excellent jam which breaks from "Twist" around 7:30 into some good major mode action, then grows a bit spacey and dissonant before morphing into a really nice rocking groove. Towards the end, it gets angry and dissonant and -> to "Simple."
2019-11-29 BOTT Providence, RI 7:53 Instead of the typical, crescendo-oriented jam, here the band breaks into an atypical major mode jam, providing a warm and more relaxing sentiment.
2019-11-29 Plasma Providence, RI 13:42 Better late than never, "Plasma" now seems a Phish (centerpiece) staple. Here, the band drops immediately from the song's signature licks to enter a synth-driven exploration, with major (or minor) "Crosseyed and Painless" undertones. Ever percussive, and, as always, interesting, a full-band psychedelic swirl peels apart as Trey shape shifts, his soloing brightening to inform, with Page's carnival-esque keys, a fun, celebratory vibe.
Jam chart versions are selected because of improvisational and other characteristics that distinguish these from typical versions of the song.
