iceee This was my third Phish show following the Went and Assembly Hall - little did I know what was about to transpire. The six-minute segment in Tweezer between 13:00-19:00 is in my opinion the greatest improvisational moment the band ever produced. This new "churning" jam style had been developed over the previous few weeks and hit a peak during Tweezer that is indescribable.

The Palace became a rocket ship with all engines firing on all cylinders, as the band shape-shifted through Tweezer, culminating in the devastating descending phrases from Trey around 18:15. Interestingly, the lights remained static throughout almost the entire jam, leaving the music front and center. After 90+ shows I've never recreated the feeling those six minutes gave me.
