Jam Chart for Plasma (2 entries)

Date Song City Timing Notes
2016-10-19 Plasma Nashville, TN 8:40 "Plasma" assumes a fluid, late second-set form. Atmospheric and introspective, with strong elements of "Timber (Jerry)," Mike and Fish create a brooding, cosmic space within which Page provides on-point fills, and Trey works through a number of styles and rhythmic shifts, coloring the jam with really cool and pensive "feedback" intraplay.
2017-08-05 Plasma New York, NY 10:15 Three years after its Phish debut, "Plasma" now seems a set number within the band's incredible canon. As if composed to to assume those elements of a given show, here, the song, > from "Alaska", is the perfect call to bring the "Boston Creme's" first set to a close. Fluid full-band play runs smoothly for some time, with Page occasionally picking the song's lilting melody to rise from the version's thick groove. Trey's swirling, on-point play, fat with sustain, eventually transitions to trilling, which charges an energized build. This peaks to break into the closing refrain.
Jam chart versions are selected because of improvisational and other characteristics that distinguish these from typical versions of the song.
The jam chart team has highlighted some versions with a yellow background; these are the versions the team believes to be especially improvisational, or otherwise notable.
