Jam Chart for shows in the city of State College, PA (10 entries)

Date Song City Timing Notes
1994-04-08 SOAMelt State College, PA 12:15 Nothing recreational here, Trey, exiting the song proper, dominates. After simply spraying the space with impossibly open, yet concentrated sound, play (7:00) momentarily grinds to inform cool, droning, near-thematic improvisation. Not for long. As if broken down to rebuild, Trey whips the band into a frenzy, picking up not just where this version left off, but, rather, where "Melt" jamming had stood, historically, peaking (Aug. 93). Insane, must-hear Trey play.
1994-04-08 It's Ice State College, PA 5:46 Second set jam vehicle. First ever "Digital Delay Loop" jam is performed, followed by a rocking and extended "It's Ice" jam. Must-hear version.
1994-04-08 Digital Delay Loop Jam State College, PA 1:37 -> in from "It's Ice." The debut of the "Digital Delay Loop" jam is performed at the beginning of the "Ice" jam. -> back to "It's Ice" for more excellent "Ice"-type jamming.
1994-04-08 It's Ice State College, PA 7:19 -> in from the debut of the "Digital Delay Loop" jam. A rocking and excellent "Ice" jam follows the "DDL" jam.
1994-04-08 Hood State College, PA 12:27 Begins with a nice bouncy groove, things settle into quiet, subtle playing, then Trey & Co. build to a textbook finale.
1994-04-08 Bowie State College, PA 11:19 Like 1993, the band starts 1994 with an uninterrupted string of improvisational "Bowies." This one has a very cool, exploratory jam, but not so jarring and dissonant as most of the '93s.
1996-10-17 SOAMule State College, PA 12:20 Guitar/vocal response by Trey. "DEG" -like jamming in Page's second solo by Page and Trey > klezmer and chanting.
1997-12-09 Mike's State College, PA 11:58 The single jam has a funky bent at first. After working through some typical terrain, the funk comes back, especially after 8:30 when the jam takes on a "BEK"-like vibe, accentuated by some nice stop/start action.
1997-12-09 Simple State College, PA 29:32 The jam that emerges begins subtly, then grows some legs as Fish and Mike kick the funk into gear before morphing back into a quiet, contemplative jam. Extremely improvisational version. Seamless segue sounds at first like a move to "Bowie" but becomes "Timber" instead.
1997-12-09 Timber Ho State College, PA 7:44 Segue -> in from a 30 minute "Simple," this version restores the jam to its typical place of darkness, and has an almost '95 psychedelic feel to it, with Fish kicking the percussion into heavier action.
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.
