Jam Chart for No Men In No Man's Land (10 entries)

Date Song City Timing Notes
2015-07-21 NMINML Bend, OR 10:08 Debut. The song sounds fully formed from the start. Nice > into "Weekapaug Groove."
2015-07-25 NMINML Inglewood, CA 12:29 Trey makes a dive into minor-key Fall '97-esque territory, then the jam takes on a menacing vibe not unlike "Psycho Killer" before a > into "Carini."
2015-08-12 NMINML Philadelphia, PA 12:07 Swerves away from the usual wicked funk to a more rock-oriented jam, with a nice little peak. Collapses into space, then rebuilds to the "NMINML" ending. > into an epochal "Twist."
2015-08-21 NMINML Watkins Glen, NY 11:45 Doubles down on the Mann version with two separate rock-oriented jams, occasionally hinting at the climax of "CYHMK." Returns to the "NMINML" ending twice, then dissolves into an ambient fog and -> neatly into "Slave."
2015-12-31 NMINML New York, NY 21:02 Awesome NYE prank version. The jam begins in a mellow zone with sprinkles of bliss. After a sparse, ambient section, Fish kicks things back into a solid groove, before "Drive-In Jam"-like effects and sounds overtake. Must-hear Phish. Note: a few minutes were probably pre-recorded as part of the NYE "gag".
2016-07-15 NMINML George, WA 10:13 Played with blistering energy from the off. "Crosseyed & Painless" quotes liven up the midway portion of the jam, then Page takes center stage on Lil' Punkin as things get darker and more dissonant. Similar to 2016's top "Fuego"s in that it never quite leaves the song's boundaries, but explores them for all it's worth with some wonderful playing. > into "Stash".
2016-09-02 NMINML Commerce City, CO 15:32 Fiery pre-choral jamming oozes into a prolonged and focused jam zone throbbing with psychedelic intensity (an approach not yet taken through this point in the song's history). Trey in particular is exuding a verve and tenacity wholly controlled, yet chaotic sonically.
2017-07-14 NMINML Chicago, IL 15:03 Super version, which opens noticeably slower than 2016's fiery renditions. Trey augments his tone and solos with spirit, but the soul of this version arrives near the 8:00 mark, when Page moves to his synthesizer and leads the band through a spectral passage of "postmodern," improvisational sound. Liquid bass and stylized Trey work atop Fish's minimalist beat, with Page working different sonic shifts that would sound at home in a mature "IAWITW" jam. Chanting and more focused guitar return this reading to the song's coda before a bit of space informs a > into "Fuego."
2017-08-04 NMINML New York, NY 14:00 A nice, straightforward jam with a mellow vibe builds to a peak. Then, as Page adds some synth color, the jamming seems to test the boundaries, cycles into another peak, before finally mellowing to transition space.
2017-09-01 NMINML Commerce City, CO 23:46 Awash in 2017's signature synth and Trey's latest effects, an example, here, of space down to a science. As Page explores his keyboards, Trey sheds the guitar and uses a new device to create a hushed, astral plane. Back on guitar, Trey guides the musicians, who together shape a celebratory peak.
