Jam Chart for shows in the city of Sacramento, CA (9 entries)

Date Song City Timing Notes
1992-08-30 Antelope Sacramento, CA 11:44 Some very good exploratory jamming midway, with lots of descending melodic lines from Trey. Great tension as the jam builds up with excellent work by Trey.
1993-03-22 Reba Sacramento, CA 14:48 Really fluid and laid-back jamming, with Trey all but absent (relatively speaking), as if inciting the others to respond. This results in an all but total dialing down of the sound. Not so much a secret language, as a testament to the band, who, via subdued and nuanced playing, manage to maintain the structure of the jam before Trey works through a series of cool rhythmic shifts and wonderful sustain to arrive at the "note."
1993-03-22 It's Ice Sacramento, CA 5:06 Band uses the jam as a segue for a performance of the entire suite of Gamehenge songs, one of only 5 such performances. Unfinished.
1995-09-27 Hood Sacramento, CA 15:16 The jam veers into different territory at 8:45 as the customary "Hood" harmonics are upended by a shift to minor mode. Returns to normal "Hood" after 10:30, building to a nice peak which gradually fades with no closing refrain.
1995-09-27 Possum Sacramento, CA 10:49 Mike and Trey highlight this excellent, fun, rocking and well played version. It's mostly straightforward, but high quality fare nonetheless. Try 9/27/91 for another terrific non-exploratory version, separated by 4 years to the day.
1996-11-30 Fluffhead Sacramento, CA 14:52 A few, very minor glitches in The Chase and elsewhere, but otherwise the playing is intense and tight. How about a little Moog action in Clod? Page's piano solo later in Clod benefits from great backing from Trey, Mike and Fish. Arrival is powerful, driven by Mike and Fish, and by Trey's confident, rocking soloing, including some sick trilling near the peak.
1996-11-30 It's Ice Sacramento, CA 10:24 After a cacophony of noisy effects, nice crescendo building by Trey and Page.
1996-11-30 2001 Sacramento, CA 7:59 James Brown galore. Fish pretends to be James, tons of "Super Bad" riffs from Trey. Second jam is straight funk filth. You will laugh and dance.
1996-11-30 Possum Sacramento, CA 9:27 Peter Apfelbaum on tenor saxophone and John McEuen on lap slide guitar. Sweet jam with back and forth between Trey and McEuen, then Apfelbaum takes the lead followed by Page on the organ and piano, and then they all rock out together.
