Date Song City Timing Notes
2010-10-29 Cities Atlantic City, NJ 8:49 All four team up in the well-played, extended jam that gets somewhat spacey at the very end.
2010-10-29 Sand Atlantic City, NJ 13:11 > out of "Punch You in the Eye." Another strong version with a dynamic groove and tension-filled playing from Trey. Also includes an upbeat, "type 2" outro jam that seems to hint at "Cool it Down" and a -> into "Carini."
2010-10-29 Fluffhead Atlantic City, NJ 15:44 Despite more frequent rotation from 2009 - 2012, this song continues to challenge the band from a precision perspective. In this strong modern version, Fluff's Travels and The Chase are largely free of mistakes, but then the band hits a few bumps in Who Do? We Do! Clod is solid, with call and response action between Page and Trey, followed by nice Fish and Mike support during Page's solo. Ending this second set with emphasis, Arrival is extended compared to most versions, showing a spirited, enthused band, with strong playing by Trey and Fish, taking a couple of extra victory laps.
2010-10-30 CDT Atlantic City, NJ 5:39 "CDT" -> "Whole Lotta Love" > "CDT" from the Zeppelin fest.
2010-10-30 Whole Lotta Love Atlantic City, NJ 1:14 -> in from "CDT." Brief jam, part of Led Zeppelin oriented thematic set. -> back to "CDT."
2010-10-30 CDT Atlantic City, NJ 1:37 -> in from "Whole Lotta Love." Returns to "CDT" to conclude.
2010-10-30 Wolfman's Atlantic City, NJ 10:13 A nice vocal jam is followed by some great "Manteca"-like jamming played in a funky, staccato and rhythmic style. The jam never builds to the typical release, but retains a rhythmic focus and -> to "Undermind."
2010-10-30 Undermind Atlantic City, NJ 7:49 -> from a notable "Wolfman's Brother." Cohesive, full-band effort in this solid "Type I" version. > to "Bathtub Gin."
2010-10-30 2001 Atlantic City, NJ 10:24 Want to know what Mike Gordon can do in the 3.0 era? Look no further than the second jam in this Cactus masterpiece. This is a dancing beast. A top 3.0 version.
2010-10-30 Bowie Atlantic City, NJ 12:07 A couple of brief major mode departures lend some melodic variation and grace to this one.
2010-10-31 Stash Atlantic City, NJ 13:28 Features an unusually melodic, major mode groove that builds beautifully before returning to the norm with great tension.
2010-10-31 Wilson Atlantic City, NJ 7:56 Looney vocalizations preceding "BLAT BOOM" lead to an extra-large, type 1.5 version, in which the band quickly hooks into a thematic blues rock riff. They collectively toy around with the riff, pushing the idea into a soupy mire, before dipping into a mystical Halloween outro where Trey recapitulates the blues rock riff over lush organ drones.
2010-10-31 Julius Atlantic City, NJ 9:17 With horn and percussion accompaniment. Fantastic version. The percussion and horns are added in a particularly complementary arrangement that makes this one a real standout.
2012-06-15 Tube Atlantic City, NJ 6:33 Strong 3.0 version with start-stop jamming and fantastic playing from Mike as per usual. Spacey outro into "Cities".
2012-06-15 BOAF Atlantic City, NJ 14:37 Following a good straightforward "Birds" jam, this one moves beyond "BOAF" proper into an upbeat, pulsing jam. From there, it shifts again into 3.0-style ambient space, before regaining some rhythm and -> to "BOTT."
2012-06-16 Light Atlantic City, NJ 5:01 A fast break from "Light" -> to a quick rendition of "Manteca." Fantastic stuff. Remainder of the jam is Fish-driven and unlike another "Light" jam. There is quality "Type I" jamming as the band shreds over "Manteca" and "Crosseyed" teases.
2012-06-16 Manteca Atlantic City, NJ 0:32 -> in from "Light." Brief rendering of the Dizzy Gillespie classic occurs early in this "Light" jam. -> back to "Light."
2012-06-16 Light Atlantic City, NJ 8:36 -> in from "Manteca" as the strong "Light" jam really takes off in its aftermath.
2012-06-17 2001 Atlantic City, NJ 8:19 Second jam is a journey down slankytown lane. Slow, with some stop-start funk. Go to Atlantic City for the shady off-Boardwalk atmosphere. Stay for this "2001".
2012-06-17 CDT Atlantic City, NJ 9:22 Jam gets unusually dissonant near the end, then there is more dissonance and noisy space and a > to "Prince Caspian."
2013-10-31 Stash Atlantic City, NJ 10:05 Excellent short "Stash" with mounting tension. Like a '93 or '94 version!
2013-10-31 Wingsuit Atlantic City, NJ 6:12 Debut of the song leads off the "musical costume from the future" set at this Halloween show.
2013-10-31 Fuego Atlantic City, NJ 10:47 Debut. First version hints at future jamming potential for "Fuego."
2013-10-31 Wombat Atlantic City, NJ 6:34 Debut with "Abe Vigoda" and the Abe Vigoda Dancers.
2013-10-31 Winterqueen Atlantic City, NJ 6:23 Phish debut includes Page nicely jumping around from the Fender-Rhodes to the B-3 to the piano, and a rock driven jam from Trey.
2013-10-31 Carini Atlantic City, NJ 18:41 Serious heavyweight version kicks off with rhythmic and swirling playing. The jam brightens for a stretch, then IT builds and builds as the "HOSE" is turned on. Finally the jam recedes delicately as the spigot is turned to "off."
2013-11-01 Possum Atlantic City, NJ 11:04 A quality "old school" version with a lot of good "Type I" variation in the jamming, building up to an intense peak.
2013-11-01 Twist Atlantic City, NJ 21:02 The jam breaks away at 6:15, growing melodic and upbeat. Mike adds some great bass effects before a euphoric groove emerges. Then a fun "Under Pressure" jam develops, followed by beautiful low-key jamming.
2013-11-01 Makisupa Atlantic City, NJ 8:11 Another fun, funky version with "Kush" and "Bush" chanting, lots of weirdness, and a few genuinely musically impressive passages interspersed here and there.
2013-11-01 Boogie On Atlantic City, NJ 5:42 > from "Meatstick". There's some extra funky mustard on this one and it also includes alternate lyrics referencing bush and kush, as well as a tease of the "Theme from the Rockford Files." Ends with a > to "The Wedge".
2013-11-01 Sneakin' Sally Atlantic City, NJ 11:06 A solid and funkified breakdown jam follows a good vocal jam and includes Trey banter near the ending.
2013-11-02 Theme Atlantic City, NJ 13:58 As a standard "Theme" jam draws to a close, it morphs into a jam on the "Theme From Shaft" with amusing banter from Trey and Fish. Some good funky jamming follows the banter before returning to "Theme" to end.
2013-11-02 DwD Atlantic City, NJ 16:18 The jam breaks into a good percussive and rocking groove, then it lightens and brightens, re-energizes, and -> to "Piper."
2013-11-02 Roggae Atlantic City, NJ 7:36 A delicate and beautifully played version with a dreamy quality to it, but which also builds to a powerful peak. > to "Waves."
2013-11-02 Tweezer Atlantic City, NJ 15:22 Very repetitive, melodic, spirited, funky jam... check. this. OUT!
2021-08-13 Blaze On Atlantic City, NJ 13:14 Makes a pretty sweet move to major key bliss before Trey switches on his fancy pedals and does some pretty nifty soloing and the band heads back to "Blaze On" proper. A more concentrated dose of the diffuse improvisation of the 8/6/21 "Blaze On".
2021-08-13 Tweezer Atlantic City, NJ 22:10 Soulful, soaring soloing by Trey with fierce accompaniment, this second-set-opening version arguably stays "Type I" but still delivers. Oh, if every 20 min version could pay off like this.
2021-08-13 Gin Atlantic City, NJ 13:45 At around 7:45, the jam peels away from the typical "Gin" jam and shifts into a rolling, swinging groove. The music builds to an effects-infused peak before winding down into transition space.
2021-08-14 Drowned Atlantic City, NJ 15:54 While staying somewhat close to typical "Drowned" jamming, the music explores those bounds widely until 10:30, when there is a distinctive shift to new terrain. The jam becomes pulsing and percussive before finally settling to quiet transition space.
2021-08-15 Moma Atlantic City, NJ 14:06 Adventurous first-set jam loosens up after 8 minutes with Trey's throaty tone engaged and then soon heads for warm and delicate waters.
2021-08-15 YEM Atlantic City, NJ 19:28 Deploying the echoplex and envelope filter during the WUDMTF segment, Trey seemed to signal that this would be an atypically strong version, and it proved to be: he melodically soared during the jam segment, with excellent accompaniment from Fish, Mike and Page.
2021-08-15 Carini Atlantic City, NJ 15:14 Mike's inventive playing combined with some heavy effects from Trey kick this jam off. It doesn't take long for all four members to jell and lock in. Trey hearkens back to days of old with some longer, sustained notes which lead to a laid-back, beachy jam perfect for the setting of the show. By the 12:00 mark, the tempo picks back up for a Page-led, synth-heavy party. > "Set Your Soul Free."
2021-08-15 Piper Atlantic City, NJ 10:54 Yet another modern era jam whose length tells you nothing about its quality. Trey's goopy effects, Page on electric piano, Mike doing work, Fish switching out of his usual "Piper" beat into something heavier and more powerful - it all comes together in wickedly downbeat fashion. A hidden gem from the Summer tour, and the neat -> into a reprise of "Carini" is the icing on the cake.
2022-08-05 Sand Atlantic City, NJ 11:19 After a brief passage of standard "Sand" fare, the music modulates at 5:15 for major key. The band immediately locks onto an anthemic chord progression, with Page's grand piano bed providing a solid platform for Trey's soaring guitar. The main "Sand" riff reappears at the 10 minute mark, as the tune patiently winds down. > "Plasma."
2022-08-05 Sigma Oasis Atlantic City, NJ 21:29 A multi-sectioned monstrosity emerges from the Atlantic City Beach. The jam begins in familiar, but strong territory with excellent melodic interplay. The music grows deeper as Trey and Mike dip into their effects. Shortly after the 14 minute mark, Fishman blasts the band off into hyperspace via a double time tempo change. An aggressive and high energy jam follows, evocative of 2.0 era "Piper"s. The band then cools down into a thick funk segment that -> "Cities." Must hear.
2022-08-05 Soul Planet Atlantic City, NJ 14:52 > from "Axilla (Part II)". Mike's bass is thumping as the jam begins. Trey solos over a cool texture provided by Mike and Fish. A slow tempo gradually picks up steam, possibly because of Fish dropping a "Yeah" sample seemingly out of nowhere. The jam comes to a head around 13:00 with Trey and Mike both heavy in their effects arsenals. It melts into almost nothing before > into a big "Down With Disease".
2022-08-05 DwD Atlantic City, NJ 20:51 Big version that anchors a magical second set. The jam begins in highly melodic and patient territory. An easy-going but sonically complex jam follows, with the band shifting through effects while Fishman gallops along. As the music deepens and intensifies, Trey dips into the "bullfrog" effect, Page stacks synthesizers, and Mike taps into his synth bass palette. Fishman cuts the beat in half, and we enter a passage of effect-drenched space funk. Amidst the murk, Trey and Mike coax out a seamless "Midnight Rider" tease/jam at 16:55, much to the delight of ABB fans and tease-chasers alike. The jam then cools down into a gorgeous and remarkably delicate major key section. > a fiery "Ruby Waves."
2022-08-05 Ruby Waves Atlantic City, NJ 14:39 Ruby emerges from the ether of a big "Down with Disease." This jam gallops along through various vignettes in butter-smooth fashion (including a brief passage of dissonant jamming) before the band lands on a super connected major key rock groove. Trey begins a repeated lick that builds patiently to an absolutely incendiary hose-y peak. Fishman kicks it into an overdrive with a tempo change and the band segues into the "DWD" ending in once again, butter-smooth fashion.
2022-08-05 DwD Atlantic City, NJ 0:50 "DWD"'s closing section emerges from the ashes of an incendiary "Ruby Waves", finishing a brilliant segment of music. > an equally inspired "Ghost."
2022-08-05 Ghost Atlantic City, NJ 12:17 Mike isn't always featured in JC entries, but when he is...Well, for what it's worth - and more - check out this late-show "Ghost." Per .netter @DetectiveFrankShark: Coming out of the last chorus, deliberate three-note chromatic play prevents the band from settling into predictable jamming. Fishman drops out to play atmospheric, scattershot, offbeat "lead"; Trey matches Mike's strange play; and, suddenly, we're in foreign territory. The way the band builds up the rest of the jam is a testament to just how great they played this Friday night. This, then, > a terrific "Hood."
2022-08-05 Hood Atlantic City, NJ 13:45 It's all the same notes but a modal shift gives this inspiring jam a different tenor before it reverts back to "Hood" for a smooth finish, and combined with a super synth-funky intro, makes this a version well worth seeking out.
2022-08-05 Free Atlantic City, NJ 10:03 "Free's" second encore and first-ever show-closing appearance comes loaded with heaps of extra synthy spank and filthy wah guitar.
2022-08-06 555 Atlantic City, NJ 6:53 Inverts the tonality to major just before 5:00 and soars into a "Norwegian Wood" tease before slipping back to nasty old "555" to conclude.
2022-08-06 Gin Atlantic City, NJ 17:21 Slow fizz ... For a song in such "Heavy Rotation," the band continues to impress. Atop predictably solid, bedrock Fish, Trey works a number of hard rock riffs to inform major play offset by Page, sprite on his piano, the sound becoming, like waves lapping the shore, a gentle sort of echo, as the musicians, Mike included, work their effects. Play briefly cools before a giant blast of sustain (Trey) vaults play into minor madness and a return to the song's classic coda.
2022-08-06 Character Zero Atlantic City, NJ 9:10 The trend of pushing familiar songs out of their musical comfort zone in 2022 continues with another nicely extended version of this traditional set closer that goes beyond the normal rock peak, first by heaping on some extra fire, and then with an experimental outro that slowly peters out.
2022-08-06 NMINML Atlantic City, NJ 14:48 After a delightfully melodic first jam, the band turns to explore the darker realms of "No Man's Land" in a jam awash in loops and echoes that taps into a swirling and growling sonic space until finally resolving in a momentary bliss that decays only to give way to the opening notes of "Tweezer".
2022-08-06 Simple Atlantic City, NJ 12:42 An "Under Pressure" tease shakes things loose, allowing for a wispy, cyclical jam to take hold, which ratchets up moderately before an eerie alien outro possibly setting up a > "2001" but instead > "BDTNL". Quite a nugget of improvisation.
2022-08-07 Tube Atlantic City, NJ 12:07 Jam begins in its normal uber-funk space with Page pounding the clavinet and Trey outlining with simple but pointed lead guitar playing. The band then hooks up on a riff that leads them into a more contemplative, dark space. The music then shifts into a breezy major key groove very appropriate for the setting. Another shift towards minor key occurs, and the music morphs into a rocking jam that executes a great segue back into the blues shuffle portion of the song.
2022-08-07 Ocelot Atlantic City, NJ 11:10 One has argued it's not the wind, but, rather, the trees that create the breeze. Here, Trey as tree, drives an airy, guitar-driven jam that moves effortlessly across sea and sand. Fish, solidly in the pocket, anchors the band as the four take the song for another deceptively simple ride before, as if a wave, breaking for "Fluffhead."
2022-08-07 A Wave of Hope Atlantic City, NJ 19:22 Once again, Trey's newer material serves as springboard for some of the band's most compelling improvisation. Here we get a multi-part jam that moves comfortably between sections and which finds all members of the band communicating and contributing. Listen especially to Fishman and how he drives the musical conversation.
2022-08-07 YEM Atlantic City, NJ 23:46 Although Trey is very rough in the opening, he soon recovers, and the version coasts along as per "average-great-normal" until 11:45 of the jam segment when Trey teases "Mr. P.C.," and the jam takes off and eventually reaches a BLISTERING peak. Bass and Drums segment is average-great, and the Vocal Jam is as well, but it's only ~95 seconds long, before (as in other recent versions) a second jam segment begins, in that Fish begins drumming and the others begin playing their instruments in short order, largely mimicking the final measures of the vocal jam during the first few minutes of this second jam segment. This second jam is thrilling, and peaks triumphantly.
Jam chart versions are selected because of improvisational and other characteristics that distinguish these from typical versions of the song.
The jam chart team has highlighted some versions with a yellow background; these are the versions the team believes to be especially improvisational, or otherwise notable.
