Hose_jam Review of Chalkdust Torture. Timing from:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xG6magkY-KE />
First jam:
5:20 band ends the normal Chalkdust peaking solo.
6:00 Mike takes control with his bassline, sending the jam into new territory. Page obliges by switching to the Moog, creating a spacey backdrop. Mike then proceeds to get weird and Trey follows suit.
7:40 The band emerges from some dissonant and directionless space with Trey noodling, Fish driving the beat, and Page and Mike creating a nice soundscape. Very patient and spacey jam. Interestingly enough, it's Fishman who is "doing the most" in this section with a bunch of creative fills and accents responding to Trey's noodling.

Second jam (dark)
10:26 Trey locks into a distortion heavy riff, similar to Izabella. The band locks in immediately giving the jam a more driving sound. Trey lays on some dark delays and then explodes at 11:45, seemingly going back into the Chalkdust theme (especially Page). They don't close the chalkdust theme though and around 12:30 they're back to a staccato like jam eventually vamping on a note. (13:15ish).
13:44 Mike is featured with heavy effects; a very dark riff...the band creates a wall of sound

Third jam (03 sound)
15:05 Page comes in with Rhodes. Trey immediately starts to take action scratching out a chord progression. This is a very similar sounding jam to a lot of jams from summer '03, most notably 7/30/03 Scents.
18:55 Trey starts to hit high notes off his vamping. Page has an awesome clav/grand piano combo here.
19:45 Trey comes in with a more traditional melody driven solo. He's now back into the Chalkdust theme playing a lot of riffs and runs that he typically does in Chalkdust.

21:20 Trey brings it down after a peak. Begins to do some noodling and Mike puts on an effect ala Worchester Moma. The jam then resolves itself properly in typical Chalkdust nature.
