Slewfoot Tweezer Jam

Loved, loved, loved this show. But let me cut to the chase. I would like to take a minute to talk about the last 5 minutes of the Tweezer jam as I imagine it may get overlooked with all the other highlights. The closest thing that it resembles to my ears is The Went Gin which is the highest compliment I can give.

As the band gets totally out of standard Tweezer territory, Trey suddenly throws out a theme on top of Fishman's rhythm. Page immediately picks up on it and Mike comes in with a rolling bass line. Suddenly they are off and running on this theme that is pure bliss. As with The Went Gin they essentially grab meaning out of thin air and ride it on the crest of a wave. They are in that zone where they can do no wrong. It doesn't peak like The Went Gin, but it does have a similar feeling of something being right and noble. Truly pristine. Give it a listen and you won't be disappointed.
