Jam Chart for Julius (20 entries)

Date City Timing Notes
1994-04-04 Burlington, VT 6:39 Debut with the Giant Country Horns. Played at a slightly faster tempo than most subsequent versions. Establishes precedent for this song to be a pretty intense, raging one. SBD available on the "Spreadsheet."
1994-07-13 Patterson, NY 5:18 -> in from "Tweezer." "Julius" is sandwiched in the "Tweezer" jam.
1994-10-31 Glens Falls, NY 7:51 Trey goes insane. Truly SICK version. > "Horse."
1995-06-24 Philadelphia, PA 10:00 Straightforward, but for a song that is already predictably intense, this one raises that bar several notches.
1995-10-24 Madison, WI 9:10 Blistering, second-set opening powerhouse.
1995-12-07 Niagara Falls, NY 6:44 Only known version with a Page-only solo.
1996-12-06 Las Vegas, NV 9:10 Nice bluesy swing in this version, patiently played out before the rousing finale.
1997-07-10 Marseilles, France 12:02 Jam starts out conventionally, but then the band brings the volume way, way down. After playing quietly for several minutes, the intensity builds. Unusual ending with -> to "Magilla."
1997-07-23 Atlanta, GA 13:27 Arguably the best "Type I" version ever. The jam proceeds through the customary progressions, then, just when your ear is expecting the final refrain, the band veers off into a fantastic, swinging, stylistically well-played extension.
1997-08-03 George, WA 13:00 Jam begins in a great, bluesy groove with Page on the B-3 for a few minutes before he jumps to the piano. Trey is relaxed in his playing, gradually building this one up, but never loses the swinging feel.
1997-11-23 Winston-Salem, NC 10:30 Some great, fire stoking playing by Trey as he brings this hot show to a fitting close.
1997-12-05 Cleveland, OH 17:04 At about 7:30, departs from standard "Julius" into several new directions. Returns to the song several times, only to venture out again, further into new territory, including funk and reggae modes. Perhaps fitting that the only, truly exploratory "Julius" transitions to the only, truly exploratory "Slave."
1997-12-28 Landover, MD 10:57 Nice mellow groovy jam that has some decent stylistic variation.
1998-07-16 George, WA 11:32 Another version where the jam is made more interesting by starting with a nice swinging groove, and only very gradually building the intensity.
2003-11-29 Philadelphia, PA 10:11 Has some really cool riffs from Trey throughout that are unusual, as well as some nice low intensity playing.
2010-10-22 Providence, RI 9:30 Trey lays down some different and interesting licks in the early parts of the jam, and Mike is great.
2010-10-31 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.
2011-06-15 Alpharetta, GA 9:31 The band does a nice job here of bringing the jam down nice and low, before raising it back up high at the end.
2011-09-14 Essex Junction, VT 10:30 Similar to many of the other standout versions, where the band brings the tone and groove down nicely before rebuilding. But in this version, the band gets into an almost jazz-like swing, and Page adds some unusual (for "Julius") chords that increase the jazz mode.
2012-06-08 Worcester, MA 9:58 Proving again that less is more (at least for "Julius"), Trey's nimble, amped-down playing provides interesting texture, and creates better suspension awaiting the inevitable re-build.
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.
