|1996-10-23||Ya Mar||Hartford, CT||9:23||Bob Gullotti on second drum set. Nice two-way drum solo.|
|1996-10-23||Tweezer||Hartford, CT||17:26||Extra drummer (Bob Gullotti), plus Trey on the percussion kit for awhile = lots of OOooomph.|
|1997-11-26||Tweezer||Hartford, CT||17:29||Funk soars into some excellent, transcendent, arguably "hose" improv.|
|1997-11-26||Gumbo||Hartford, CT||12:11||Funky jam has nice interplay between band members. Stacatto-ey at times with some "Manteca" teases. At 8:00 Mike starts a theme that they play around with for a couple minutes before Trey takes over with a solo that leads into My Soul.|
|1997-11-26||McGrupp||Hartford, CT||10:07||An excellent version arriving midway through an excellent first set. Following a strong composed section, Page crafts an inspired passage, gently working a pleasant melody. Trey responds in kind, offering the perfect counter to Page's playing. While different from the typcially comedic "Mule-Duel," the combination here jells, creating an inspired rise to the conclusion.|
|1997-11-26||Taste||Hartford, CT||12:02||Unbelievable playing by Trey and the others as the band builds to a HUGE peak and then drives up over another. 7/22/97 is (literally) electrifying; 8/3/97 is unusually improvisational. This version is just phenomenal, with masterful contributions by all band members.|
|1997-11-26||Character Zero||Hartford, CT||20:43||This uniquely jammed out version maintains a heavy rock vibe for the duration and features multiple Trey solo sections. -> "2001".|
|1997-11-26||2001||Hartford, CT||14:23||First jam is stellar, highlighted by the 5:00-7:00 mark. Second jam goes "Super Bad" stop-start and your clothes will be shed on the ground. Segue into "Cities" is great.|
|1997-11-26||Cities||Hartford, CT||8:00||Segues out of "2001." Nice mellow groove tacked onto the outro. -> to "Ya Mar."|
|1997-11-26||Caspian||Hartford, CT||11:19||> in from "PYITE." Soaring and shredding guitar playing by Trey. Stellar backing from the others.|
|1999-12-12||Drowned||Hartford, CT||30:37||If you're looking for a good groove-based jam coming out of "Drowned," this is a more dynamic, propulsive and multi-sectional option than Big Cypress. It's solid, not epic, but well worth checking out.|
|2000-06-30||Tweezer||Hartford, CT||12:18||Short but very powerful.|
|2000-06-30||Possum||Hartford, CT||10:24||Trey's agitated, high pitched playing in the latter part of the jam sounds like a jet airplane throttling up for takeoff.|
|2000-06-30||Halley's||Hartford, CT||15:06||Nice jam with good bass work from Mike that sounds similar to "Sand." The energy level really picks up in the final few minutes as Trey kicks into high gear. "Things That Make You Go Hmmm" tease by Mike.|
|2000-06-30||Mango||Hartford, CT||12:13||> in from "Halley's Comet." Great version where the band explores and improvises with the basic "Mango" theme in a greatly extended outro jam that transitions to "Twist."|
|2000-07-01||Vultures||Hartford, CT||10:38||Relatively rote yet impassioned play begins to build, and build (check out the fan reaction around 8:08), as Trey trills, slashes, and powers the version to a blistering peak. This yields to cool riffing, with Mike and Fish locking in to form a fun run with Trey augmenting his tone before, with Page pounding upon his keys, the musicians break free to bring the version to a close.|
|2000-07-01||Ghost||Hartford, CT||16:24||Sleek bullet train jumps the tracks at the top of a steep grade escapes Earth's gravitational pull and goes supernova as it nears light speed. [A quick-tempo "Ghost" jam acelerates even further, Trey shreds amidst uniquely '00 sounds, and then the jam gets crazed before blasting off into outer space.]|
|2009-08-14||BOAF||Hartford, CT||9:32||Similar to 11/13/98 in that this version mostly stays "in bounds," but likewise pushes the envelope. A quality version.|
|2009-08-14||DwD||Hartford, CT||13:00||Atypically soulful soloing from Trey, with a strong "Reba"-like jam, shortly before the ending segue into "Wilson."|
|2009-08-14||Piper||Hartford, CT||13:02||Once past 3 minutes of somewhat unpleasant string bending from Trey, the jam becomes quite improvisational and multi-faceted with some great Mike and Page contributions, including a "Spill The Wine" Page tease.|
|2010-06-17||DwD||Hartford, CT||16:49||A very good clavinet-led funk groove develops. Briefly seems to be rebuilding to return to "DwD", but instead -> "Sand."|
|2010-06-17||Farmhouse||Hartford, CT||7:26||This version has an excellent jam segment most notable for the cohesive playing by all four band mates. The peaceful, wandering melody here creates a perfect soundtrack for a summer evening. The only drawback to this fine version is Trey's use of the pitch shifter, common throughout 2010, which can be grating if allowed to dominate one's listening experience.|
|2013-10-27||Fee||Hartford, CT||6:49||Slightly extended outro with nice melodic contributions from Mike. > to "Maze".|
|2013-10-27||Maze||Hartford, CT||9:43||Fish, Page and Mike really crank the tension up during Trey's solo, combining for a fiery peak to this "Maze."|
|2013-10-27||Tweezer||Hartford, CT||17:31||Overrated by your friends, this version captivates with brilliantly melodic soloing by Trey for several minutes, before flaking out a bit, and becoming aimless. (Still worth your while to hear to be sure.)|
|2013-10-27||Golden Age||Hartford, CT||16:47||Ferocious start-to-finish, with magnificent accompaniment by Page, Mike and Fish as Trey solos.|
|2013-10-27||2001||Hartford, CT||8:03||Trey changes the soundscape to this constantly. Second jam is a funk Echoplex exploration. Band takes all kinds of chances here.|
|2016-07-09||BDTNL||Hartford, CT||8:36||A strong version which features contemplative, quiet, and delicate playing, unusual for "BDTNL." Ultimately, this warm, restrained playing gives way to a traditional shredding and trilling peak.|
