|2014-07-09||Philadelphia, PA||9:04||Rearranged and redefined, this post-Halloween version--aka the "flown balls Wingsuit"--donning its now "traditional" form. Great full-band play (especially Fish) backs Trey's powerful soloing, which features dynamic modulation and a shift in pitch. Feels good.|
|2014-07-12||New York, NY||9:24||Rising from "Ghost's" super spacey >, Trey takes us higher still, his patient soloing inspired and emotive, complimented by Fish's shuffling, upbeat drumming. An early example of the song's potential all but fully realized.|
|2015-07-22||Bend, OR||9:39||This very cool, effects-laden version features Trey finding a theme of sorts in his solo (a series of riffs). Page responds in kind. And Trey trills. He modifies his tone. He bends notes. And he builds in some serious sustain. Mike does not deploy his drill, and this adds something extra to the outro. Must-hear.|
|2016-07-16||George, WA||10:48||More quiet, contemplative soloing from Trey allows for more access to Mike's playing, which creates a really pleasant and interesting sonic juxtaposition. Trey's patterned, almost "skipping" style works to inspire Fish and Page. This eventually yields to far more forceful soloing (Trey), with Fish thrashing about upon his cymbals. Mike's drilling creates an interesting > into "Shade."|
|2017-08-02||New York, NY||11:02||> from a huge "Taste" to cool a historic "Mike's Groove". While the version slowly builds with customary intensity, Trey (6:00) enters a passage of excellent inward play before joined by Page. This develops into pointed, inventive, and, for "Wingsuit", unusual full-band improvisation, before yielding to a strange, restrained, conclusion. > "Sally".|
|2019-07-10||Uncasville, CT||10:48||"Wingsuit" is one of those songs where, when Trey's tone, texture, and phrasing align, there is no place you would rather be than somewhere upon this planet, listening to Phish. This is one such version. The band's accents are perfect, but Trey dominates, suspending animation and creating a sort of breathless relief, wonderful peaks punctuated by Fish's impeccable percussion.|
