Jam Chart for shows in the city of Kalamazoo, MI (9 entries)

Date Song City Timing Notes
1992-12-10 Reba Kalamazoo, MI 12:22 Wonderful, somewhat restrained drumming (even the vocals feel hushed) creates a terrific pace and works to steer the jam, which seems carved from space, with Trey creating an incredible droning, echo-like effect atop some really great bass. The band, ever dynamic, modulates intensity, with Page way up in his register, and Trey, like a machine, repeatedly running through a set of notes wholly melodic, and expertly placed.
1992-12-10 Maze Kalamazoo, MI 9:48 Strong early version. Page whips things into a frenzy before Machine Gun Trey blows the roof off.
1994-06-19 Stash Kalamazoo, MI 11:51 The jam gets out there well beyond "Stash." The tension is cranked up repeatedly with great pounding by Fish.
1994-06-19 Antelope Kalamazoo, MI 13:49 Typically great '94 thrashing "Antelope" stuff until 6:25 when the jam breaks into a good settled section that percussively rebuilds with wild dissonance and buckets of tension.
1994-06-19 Reba Kalamazoo, MI 13:44 Strong, Mike-driven version, featuring great percussion. Trey's playing is as fast as Page's fills are delicate, and the band works through several ideas and progressions to build a jam that, at points, sounds like "David Bowie."
1994-06-19 Makisupa Kalamazoo, MI 8:23 Excellent version. Reggae sounding and effects laden jam around 2:20 that goes on for a few minutes. A jam resembling a "DDL" jam (which doesn't actually include any loops) emerges around 6:30 out of the vocal reprise, and eventually works its way back into a second vocal reprise.
1995-10-27 Runaway Jim Kalamazoo, MI 9:07 The recording, while imperfect, does well to capture Trey's signature (95) tone, and Page's strong play. The band creates an excellent passage of sustained "calm", which they deftly rebuild before Trey trills the version to a strong peak.
1995-10-27 Fluffhead Kalamazoo, MI 14:40 Evoking all the great sounds of 1995, from Trey's Leslie-infused watery guitar effects, to Fish's booming drums, this excellent version captures the timeless nature of "Fluffhead" at this important point in the band's history. No surprise that The Chase and Who Do? We Do! provide a few minor road bumps, but generally the playing is intense and focused. Clod features some great piano soloing, while all four coalesce to hammer home a powerful Arrival.
1995-10-27 Simple Kalamazoo, MI 8:53 Very different jam, rocking at first but with descending and unusual harmony from Page, then becoming very spacey and > to "McGrupp."
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.
