Jam Chart for Set Your Soul Free (6 entries)

Date City Timing Notes
2018-07-20 George, WA 8:40 Phish debut
2018-07-25 San Francisco, CA 23:33 Out of the gates, Page teases switching to D bliss and Mike tries to follow. Trey stays in a minor mode until 8:45, where he finally joins the bliss through whale call as Page switches to synth pads. Here, the jam coasts on calm waves of effects-laden happiness; at 14:00, Trey plays a pattern that builds to a whale call peak accompanied by chordal work on piano from Page and a ride cymbal-driven shuffle from Fishman. Before truly peaking Trey switches back to the fast rotary mode on his Leslie, and Mike leads the charge towards a Clavinet-dominated plinko jam. The jam winds down to a quiet and introspective effects dominated space led by bass swirls from Mike > "Twist".
2018-09-01 Commerce City, CO 17:10 Page's synthesizers usher in a characteristically '17-'18 mellow ambience, which Trey pushes to murk with more characteristic-for-2018 fast Leslie rotary. Mike and Page shift the jam to type bliss pastures; Page switches to piano, and a patient build of tension floats this jam towards a bliss peak. Trey accentuates the ascent with reverse delay and octave up effects, and Fishmam with ride-based syncopation. Mike builds up one final heavy and danceable groove to give focus and cohesion to the back half of this jam, which Trey and Mike wind down to quiet effects-laden ambience.
2018-10-17 Albany, NY 13:35 Somewhat dark grooving, with strong Mike emerges from the song proper. The sentiment brightens with a warmer tone, before returning to darker, more rocking place.
2018-12-28 New York, NY 15:40 Synth lord Page pushes the jam to light and airy bliss pastures. Mike teams up with Fish's ride cymbal to create a delicate pad upon which Trey launches layers of whale call on the backs of delay. Mike uses effects to create a reverberant wash that blanket the fray; this leads to a passage marked by heavy rhythmic downbeats.
2019-02-22 Riviera Maya, Quintana Roo, Mexico 25:53 Massive Set 2 opener. Pivots into a gritty and nasty jam at Mike's urging, which gets very heavy (and a tad flubby) as Trey takes control. A gnarled groove emerges, with Page laying on the electric piano extra thick, and then Trey pivots into major-key territory. The jam grows warm and pleasant as Mike moves into the lead, Page throwing in a carnivalesque ambiance, then Trey starts firing off some crunchy solos and we enter the wonderful land of hard rocking. A few "woos" are goosed, then Page hits on some ascending not unlike "Tweezer Reprise" and the jam peaks in wonderful fashion. > into an equally outstanding "Mercury".
