Jam Chart for the state of MO (49 entries)

Date Song City Timing Notes
1992-03-31 Stash Columbia, MO 10:22 Unusually long version for this time period. Although largely straightforward, the jam features some great stacatto plucking by Trey and great tension building.
1992-12-04 Possum St. Louis, MO 11:48 Mostly straightforward, but the jam has multiple sections, and with each, Trey alters the riff or jam style. Solid.
1993-04-14 Stash St. Louis, MO 10:48 "Stash" -> "Kung" -> "Stash." The jam is typically great Spring '93 stuff with exploration beyond the norm. Returns, seemingly to conclude, then heads out again for more exploration, winding up in the Land of "Kung."
1993-04-14 Kung St. Louis, MO 3:27 -> in from "Stash." Great combination, a tense, improvisational "Stash" paired with "Kung" in the middle, which includes "DEG" jamming. -> back to "Stash."
1993-04-14 Stash St. Louis, MO 1:13 -> in from "Kung" to conclude this excellent version of "Stash."
1993-04-14 YEM St. Louis, MO 14:19 Excellent jam segment -> to a "Spooky" sandwich.
1993-04-14 Spooky St. Louis, MO 1:00 -> in from "YEM." A "Spooky" jam is sandwiched in this "YEM" jam. -> back to "YEM."
1993-04-14 YEM St. Louis, MO 9:40 -> in from "Spooky" as this excellent "YEM" jam continues.
1993-08-16 Possum St. Louis, MO 12:37 Several breakaway moments in this exploratory jam. When it's not moving beyond "Possum," the jam is wild, rocking and intense with incredible playing by Trey. Unusual and spontaneous ending with whistling.
1993-08-16 Reba St. Louis, MO 19:25 Magnificent. A huge, fantastic, multi-faceted, and improvisational odyssey, this version features three-distinct segments which culminate in a blistering peak. A truly wonderful "Reba," the second to arise in the middle of an historic month for the song.
1993-08-16 Foam St. Louis, MO 11:24 Very improvisational version. Fish is the star here, varying the rhythmic structure several times during Page's solo, and during Trey's solo, which has moments of reggae-like sound, as well as a brief jazz-like swing. Then at 7:10, the band begins a silent jam which continues until 9:00. (NOTE that several versions from 1993 and 1994 include "silent jams" such this one. See 8/25/93, 8/28/93, 4/8/94, 5/12/94, 11/22/94 and 12/4/94 for examples that are also excellent versions).
1993-08-16 SOAMelt St. Louis, MO 11:48 Superb exploratory playing. While it has neither the dissonance and chaotic jamming of many '94 versions, nor the psychological edginess of many '95s, the overall quality places this "SOAM" in good company among the best.
1993-08-16 Mike's St. Louis, MO 12:38 A typically short, strong '93 1st jam moves on to some good improvisational play in the 2nd jam. This one hangs together musically pretty well despite a few signature August '93 oddities. The jam gets pretty sweet and rocking as it progresses, with a "Crossroads"-like vibe.
1993-08-16 Weekapaug St. Louis, MO 15:16 Highly improvisational version including jams on "Gypsy Queen" (Santana) and "I Wish" (Stevie Wonder).
1994-11-22 Funky Bitch Columbia, MO 6:08 Intense but straightforward version which -> to an incredible and classic Fall '94 "Jam," labeled as "Columbia Jam" on Live Phish Vol. 18.
1994-11-22 Jam Columbia, MO 22:08 A MUST-HEAR incredible jam that -> in from "Funky Bitch." Very improvisational with multiple sections, it defies easy description except that it's classic Fall '94 jamming. -> "Yerushalayim Shel Zahav."
1994-11-22 Yerushalayim Shel Zahav Columbia, MO 2:04 -> in from "Jam," an incredible and MUST-HEAR classic 1994 improvisational performance. This Hebrew folk song provides a fitting ending to this iconic jam.
1994-11-22 Runaway Jim Columbia, MO 6:30 Short but excellent version quickly exits the typical jam in favor of a rocking, blues-infused jam which -> to a crazed "BBFCFM."
1994-11-22 BBFCFM Columbia, MO 7:02 -> in from "Runaway Jim." WILD version with extra screaming, silliness, profanity, and a bluegrass ending.
1994-11-22 Hood Columbia, MO 12:46 Played by audience request, the jam features an improvisational early section, a fantastic build up, and wonderful peak.
1994-11-23 It's Ice St. Louis, MO 5:40 Another strong Fall '94 version which -> "Mind Left Body Jam."
1994-11-23 Mind Left Body Jam St. Louis, MO 1:24 -> in from "It's Ice" for a solid jam featuring the iconic descending chord riff.
1994-11-23 It's Ice St. Louis, MO 2:26 > in from "Mind Left Body Jam" to complete this "Ice."
1994-11-23 Tweezer St. Louis, MO 20:00 Some gorgeous, must-hear jams and "space." Just magnificent at times. "Power of Soul" tease.
1994-11-23 YEM St. Louis, MO 1:42 Spectacular version in every way -> to "Vibration Of Life" in the opening segment.
1994-11-23 Vibration of Life St. Louis, MO 1:41 -> in from the "YEM" opening segment. -> back to a fantastic "YEM."
1994-11-23 YEM St. Louis, MO 24:02 -> in from "Vibration Of Life" to return to this spectacular "YEM."
1995-06-13 Foam Maryland Heights, MO 10:03 Some great plucking and strumming by Trey. The band is so tight and locked on in this version.
1995-06-13 Reba Maryland Heights, MO 13:59 Really cool and experimental playing from the jump. Trey scratches his way into the jam and synchs up with Mike to exchange a cool set of complimentary notes. This builds into a series of measured, effects-enhanced chords, and great full-band play, featuring quiet, contemplative exploration, and marked rhythmic shifts. Trey's soloing dazzles, as the band works to a characteristically strong peak.
1995-10-19 Mike's Kansas City, MO 14:30 A Page and Mike heavy 1st jam, in which Trey hangs very much in the background. In the 2nd jam, screeching play from Trey and B-3 fills from Page compliment the funky, rhythmic base. Then there's a 3rd jam of sorts at 9:50, which features Trey retaking the lead in a plucky and upbeat conclusion.
1995-10-19 Weekapaug Kansas City, MO 13:12 The jam goes "Type II" midway through for several minutes of foreboding exploration, during which Fish really stands out. Unfinished with "Dreaming" and "Keyboard Army" teases.
1996-11-15 Mike's St. Louis, MO 13:12 After a relatively brief (for this period) 1st jam, the 2nd begins with some early funk-infused playing. Around 8:20, the sentiment shifts to rocking, upbeat hose jamming, similar to several of the great "Simple" jams from Fall '96. An excellent rock-the-house jam.
1996-11-19 Loving Cup Kansas City, MO 7:12 Trey rips it up and closes the FIRST set in a fiery fashion!
1996-11-19 Gin Kansas City, MO 19:17 A well played "Type I" jam morphs into a funky Page-led multiple keyboard show (with Trey on the mini percussion kit). At 16:10, Trey jumps back on guitar, leading a soaring jam which works back to "Gin" and -> to "Vibration of Life."
1996-11-19 YEM Kansas City, MO 25:38 "Groove is in the Heart" jam.
1997-08-06 Runaway Jim Maryland Heights, MO 15:43 Jam settles around 6:50 into some glorious melodic space, rebuilds around 10:00 with some nice blues licks, settles again, then morphs into a serious blues jam with a -> to "My Soul."
1997-08-06 Antelope Maryland Heights, MO 15:51 Not way out there but has several sections that stretch beyond the typical structure, including a great "Makisupa" jam in the "Rocco" section with Page on theremin and Mike on a mini-drum.
1998-07-29 Gin Maryland Heights, MO 23:15 Superb, legendary "Gin." An inspired, melodic "Type I" jam mutates into a thrilling, pulsing, tension-filled electro-rock groove. Many fans rank this "Gin" at, or very near the very top of all Phish jams of all time. Enough said.
1998-07-29 Buried Alive Maryland Heights, MO 13:56 Unlikely jam vehicle opens Set II. The jam breaks beyond the standard into swirling and rocking playing, before settling into ambient space with periodic "Buried Alive" licks.
1998-07-29 Tube Maryland Heights, MO 10:00 Excellent jam combining funk and ambience, making this version a good representation of the band's sound at this time. > to "Kung".
2009-06-16 Halley's St. Louis, MO 13:23 Although the jam doesn't stray too far from the basic "Halley's" structure until the final few spacey minutes, it is nonetheless a good quality version that segues nicely to "Runaway Jim."
2012-08-22 Stash Kansas City, MO 13:42 A very good version that shifts back and forth between minor and major modes, creating tension between dark and bright.
2012-08-28 CDT St. Louis, MO 9:01 There's a second, pleasant jam segment after the customary ending, and a very smooth -> into "Frankie Says."
2012-08-28 Undermind St. Louis, MO 6:14 Well crafted -> from "Frankie Says." Quality "Type I" version features all the members in top form. After the lyrical refrain, Fish loosens up the beat as Trey deploys syncopated loops, which -> to "Sand."
2012-08-28 LxL St. Louis, MO 13:24 A great exploratory version. Pushes the edges of "LxL" until about 7:30 when it breaks well beyond into an upbeat groove that builds intensity. Ultimately returns to "LxL" to finish and > to "Julius."
2015-08-05 DwD Kansas City, MO 20:41 The band seems content to keep the majority of this jam in a low key state of quieter musing. A few energy upticks along the way to an eventually rocking peak, but this is largely a settled, chill out jam without the now typical bliss section(s).
2019-06-11 Stash St. Louis, MO 16:04 At around 8:00, the jam shifts away from the typical into a pleasant major mode section. From there, a synth/keyobard-led section morphs into cool, groovy music with nice Page/Trey interplay. The energy builds becoming more rocking, until finally returning to "Stash" proper.
2019-06-11 Tube St. Louis, MO 9:39 After an appropriately funky opening, things relax a bit with Mike making his presence known melodically and Page supplying the now-ubiquitous samples of "The Final Hurrah" while Trey lays back. Later Trey reasserts himself with some striking soloing as the energy picks up towards the jam's conclusion.
2019-06-12 Loving Cup St. Louis, MO 11:34 The longest "Loving Cup" to date is a clever - if not forced - nod to a Stanley Cup win for the St. Louis Blues minutes before this jam. A quiet bounce led by Page's piano and fast rotary tone from Trey explores quiet space at first. A rhythmic plinko jam follows, with Page on Wurlitzer and Fish's wood blocks providing occasional accent. At 7:15, Trey hints at a shift from minor to major key tonality, although the band winds back down into the patient rhythmic shuffle. Finally, at 8:45 Trey plays a few trills and Page switches to synthesizer, as a deserved - though again, if not forced - peak matches the elation of the city's first NHL championship. Whale call and twinkly Rhodes dominate the forefront of the peak, which winds down to > "Twist."
