Jam Chart for NICU (5 entries)

Date City Timing Notes
1994-12-01 Salem, OR 5:45 -> in from "Makisupa" as the "Tweezer" medley continues.
1995-12-14 Binghamton, NY 9:11 -> in from a jammed out "Halley's." A rhythmic oriented outro jam morphs into a beautiful Page solo which -> to "Slave."
1998-10-30 Las Vegas, NV 5:37 -> in from "Tweezer." Straightforward "NICU" completes a string of great segues (->), comes to an end and > to a classic '98 ambient "Jam."
2018-08-10 Raleigh, NC 9:03 Neat outro jam that prods and probes in a few different directions. > to "Thread".
2021-10-23 Chula Vista, CA 17:00 A very neat and surprising -> out of "Fluffhead", and a tremendous jam befitting the North Island Credit Union Amphitheatre. After an extended take on the usual "NICU" jam, Mike suggests minor key and things get good and dark, before they slide into something more tropical, allowing Trey to weave in the "NICU" solo we all know and love (as he will several times in this show). The band snaps into a quicksilver groove at Fish's urging, which gives way to an effects-laden pitch-black zone, before briefly brightening and then dissolving into ambiance and a wonderful -> to a surprise "Bye Bye Foot". Nearly twice as long as any other "NICU", and well worth the run time.
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.
