Jam Chart for shows in the city of Portland, OR (34 entries)

Date Song City Timing Notes
1991-10-12 Brother Portland, OR 4:31 Artis the Spoonman as gueat artist. A very different "Brother" with Page taking the lead on organ, and some very cool percussion work from Fish and Artis the Spoonman on spoons. Trey is very restrained until the end when he cranks it up.
1992-04-24 Stash Portland, OR 10:24 The first seriously exploratory version with rhythmic gyrations, unusual melody from Trey, and experimental playing.
1992-04-24 Mike's Portland, OR 9:05 While the first section is another solid April '92 showing, the real meat here is the 2nd jam, which has unusually exploratory and improvisational play for this period, even jazzy sounding Mike and some carnival-like melodies from Page and Trey.
1992-04-24 Weekapaug Portland, OR 7:35 An unusual vocal jam occurs alongside "On Broadway" teasing, followed by a rocking and intense jam, which is unfinished, and -> to "The Mango Song."
1992-04-24 Llama Portland, OR 4:56 What do you call it when the sick get sicker?
1993-04-01 Stash Portland, OR 10:38 Moves beyond "Stash" at about 7:00 for a good 2 minutes of exploration before returning.
1993-04-01 Tweezer Portland, OR 14:10 Very CYHMK-like jam for several measures. Smokes!
1993-08-26 Runaway Jim Portland, OR 10:42 Jam breaks into a great upbeat groove, settles into a quiet section, and rebuilds with great tension. Excellent.
1993-08-26 Reba Portland, OR 12:48 The third, and final, of August 93's tremendous "Rebas." Absolutely BEAUTIFUL playing in what, for the period, typically constitutes the quiet section, before another great build makes for a wonderful conclusion and a bodacious "hell yeah!" release.
1993-08-26 Fee Portland, OR 6:16 A menacing outro jam with an accelerated tempo which sets the mood for the fantastic "Split Open And Melt" that follows.
1993-08-26 SOAMelt Portland, OR 14:20 Incredible combination of improvisation and musicianship. Must-hear. Some August '93 jams are quirky. Not this one. Start to finish, it's gripping, creative, tension-filled, exploratory, and musically coherent. Simply Magnificent.
1993-08-26 Esther Portland, OR 9:09 This "Esther" features a fun and different sort of intro - which invites a really cool and shuffling sort of tempo - before great soloing and flashes of improvisational flair hint at what would come in 1994.
1993-08-26 Hood Portland, OR 13:03 Enchanting and nimble early section is gradually overtaken by power, ending in a fierce and extremely tight peak.
1993-08-26 Bowie Portland, OR 13:10 Possibly the most deranged, sick, insane, and wild-ass version ever. AWESOME!!!
1993-08-26 JJLC Portland, OR 10:14 A truly stellar Page solo (even for Leo) is absolutely matched by brilliant and shredding guitar playing by Trey.
1994-05-23 Antelope Portland, OR 13:55 Thrilling, intense, improvisational, and rocking power jam, followed by an extended "Rocco" section with whispering Trey: "Been you to have any cantaloupe?"
1994-05-23 YEM Portland, OR 21:47 VJ includes "Psycho Killer" quotes.
1995-10-05 Bowie Portland, OR 15:41 A much more exploratory version than most Fall '95 "Bowies," which despite being very well played and intense, stick pretty close to the basic theme.
1996-11-24 Reba Portland, OR 13:46 Lightning fast composed section, brimming with extra temerity. Speedy play extends into the jam, only the band, collectively, dials the sound way down, which makes for an interesting sonic juxtaposition. Notable full-band play informs this fun, quirky version, as Trey's solo builds voluminously, and the others match his intensity.
1996-11-24 2001 Portland, OR 12:21 Crazy spaced out intro. Sigourney Weaver is floating around this version somewhere. Page stars.
1996-11-24 YEM Portland, OR 22:20 Strong jam.
1998-07-15 Wolfman's Portland, OR 8:51 Classic "Type I" version that lets go of the funk, making way for some blues-inflected power jamming with great Page.
1998-07-15 Horn Portland, OR 3:58 Standard "Horn" -> to an incredible and classic '98 ambient jam.
1998-07-15 Jam Portland, OR 6:19 -> in from "Horn." A superb cerebral and lush, vintage '98 ambient jam uncorks itself on the back end of "Horn."
1998-07-15 BOAF Portland, OR 7:27 Slightly extended jam with the beginnings of some exploration beyond the standard.
1998-07-15 LxL Portland, OR 12:35 In addition to a stretched out, well-played jam, this version has a nice ambient closing that segues -> to "Simple."
1998-07-15 Tweezer Portland, OR 6:19 "California Love" tease, "Manteca" theme.
1998-07-15 California Love Portland, OR 1:52 -> in from "Tweezer." "California Love" is sandwiched in the "Tweezer" jam.
1998-07-15 Tweezer Portland, OR 7:17 -> in from "California Love" to continue this "Tweezer."
1998-07-15 Free Portland, OR 11:22 -> in from "Tweezer." An awesome jam develops that is unique, with great Fishman and Page on the B-3. Unfinished.
1998-07-15 Hood Portland, OR 13:23 Delicate, directed, and fantastic playing by Trey leads to a soaring peak. Mike and Page are great, too.
1998-07-15 Wilson Portland, OR 7:04 Encore version has Trey leaning into a heavy power chord riffing extravaganza out of the initial "solo" section. The jam threatens to go even deeper before returning to the lyrics, but after "Can you still have fun?" Trey proceeds to unload a furious, rapid quiver of wah licks for a slightly extended fanfare. > "Tweezer Reprise."
1999-09-12 Gin Portland, OR 18:33 Light years distant from the rocking, improv-oriented versions of '93 - '95, this "Type I" version, played at a slightly slowed tempo, is just incredibly beautiful, blissful music with great Trey and Page.
1999-09-12 Ghost Portland, OR 29:42 Colossal virtual reality train ride across the wind-swept moors of ninth century England diving into a vortex which dumps out into orbit around Saturn. [Departs a high energy "Ghost" at 14:00, breaking into a great bouncy groove which then become otherworldly and effects-laden, similar to the end of the 9/14/99 "Bag."]
