Jam Chart for shows in the city of New Orleans, LA (21 entries)

Date Song City Timing Notes
1991-11-07 Reba New Orleans, LA 11:03 A fast and frenetic composed section gives way to an awesome jam which, among other attributes - great shifts in rhythm and tempo, "Dave's Energy Guide" teasing - features playing evoking elements of "Divided Sky" (7:50). Compact, energetic, and experimental, a noticeable step forward in the song's evolution.
1991-11-07 Bowie New Orleans, LA 13:58 The Aquarium Rescue Unit joins the band. Great version with awesome scat singing early on followed by "DEG"-like jamming and an explosive ending.
1991-11-07 HYHU New Orleans, LA 1:00 Familiar "HYHU" intro includes members of Aquarium Rescue Unit, and -> to an improvisational take on Syd Barrett's "Love You."
1991-11-07 Love You New Orleans, LA 6:00 The band departs "The 'A' Train" having picked up members of The Aquariam Rescue Unit. The musicians lend color and character to the usually predictable "HYHU" jam, and the playing that ensues may leave you surrendering to the air, or simply tapping your foot. Fish's spoken-word "Love You" is more an afterthought, as the music, less Syd Barrett and more Tom Waits, becomes an industrial sort of groove, surprisingly musical and eminently listenable.
1991-11-07 HYHU New Orleans, LA 0:21 > in from a wild "Love You," which includes members of Aquarium Rescue Unit, to complete the traditional Fish-out-front comedic moment.
1991-11-07 Possum New Orleans, LA 8:11 "Barney Miller Theme" tease, signals and some brief but really cool key changes near the end of a seriously raging jam. Archival release from Live Phish.
1993-03-03 Weekapaug New Orleans, LA 10:02 This New Orleans rendition swings through a speedy "Smoke on the Water"-like section before rebuilding to a strong "Weekapaug" climax.
1994-05-04 It's Ice New Orleans, LA 9:44 A crazy-ass jam, typical for spring '94, and includes a "Right Off" tease (Miles Davis). > to "Sparkle."
1994-05-04 Antelope New Orleans, LA 10:03 This is a very sick and demented version, with someone (Fish?) screaming in the background at various points. Trey dedicates the jam to a good friend's baby, just then being born, and suggests naming him/her Marco Esquandolas.
1994-05-04 YEM New Orleans, LA 10:04 With Cosmic Country Horns, but a weak jam (and no B&D or VJ).
1994-10-14 Gin New Orleans, LA 11:34 A choppy, percussive jam grows quiet, starts to explore some distant territory, then builds intensity as it returns to "Gin."
1994-10-14 Tweezer New Orleans, LA 13:00 Another warm-up version for what would become the Bangor "Tweezer." Unusually improvisational.
1994-10-14 Ya Mar New Orleans, LA 6:17 Michael Ray on trumpet and shaker, and Carl Gerhard on trumpet. "Salt Peanuts" tease. Great version.
1995-10-17 Jam New Orleans, LA 36:16 With Medeski, Martin, and Wood. An astounding and VERY exploratory jam -> in from "Keyboard Army," as these improvisational kinfolk team up to tour the universe. Some really excellent sections, especially the final 7 minutes.
1996-04-26 CTB New Orleans, LA 4:57 Jazz Festival version with Michael Ray rocking the trumpet.
1996-04-26 YEM New Orleans, LA 16:44 "YEM" jam -> to an a capella "Wolfman's Bother" for the vocal jam.
1996-04-26 Wolfman's New Orleans, LA 3:52 -> in from "YEM." 2 verses of "Wolfman's" sung a capella, serving as the "YEM" vocal jam, before going electric to finish this straightforward version.
1996-04-26 Hood New Orleans, LA 12:34 Good accented notes and riffs from Trey, but a well orchestrated build up is the strong point. Great Fish in the peak, too.
1996-04-26 Bowie New Orleans, LA 13:56 Great tension-filled version that gets out there with a jam based on "Caravan" by Duke Ellington.
1999-09-26 CTB New Orleans, LA 7:09 Guests Michael Ray (Trumpet) and Tim Green (Saxophone) propel a fun, unique take on Page's scripted instrumental. A cool interlude follows intense brass - a nice touch of Trey - before morn horns push the version to its strong conclusion. Fans of the jam should stick around for the rest of the first set, and 9/9/00's "CTB" > "Funky Bitch" similar, but different, combo.
1999-09-26 BOAF New Orleans, LA 11:50 "Call To The Post" tease early in the jam. Although it stays mostly within typical "Birds" territory, this version begins in a more subdued manner, only gradually picking up energy before a blistering closing.
