Jam Chart for Scents and Subtle Sounds (11 entries)

Date Song City Timing Notes
2003-07-07 Scents and Subtle Sounds Phoenix, AZ 11:11 Debut includes intro section. Pretty intense playing in the standard jam section that follows "colors in the void."
2003-07-09 Scents and Subtle Sounds Mountain View, CA 10:37 Beautifully played straightforward version, with great Page and delicate trilling by Trey in the jam.
2003-07-23 Scents and Subtle Sounds Noblesville, IN 20:32 Show opener morphs from the standard, sedate outro jam into an intense, multi-faceted jam with an incredible and powerful peaking section.
2003-07-30 Scents and Subtle Sounds Camden, NJ 29:00 At times dark and brooding, this wildly improvisational jam on balance is remarkably upbeat and very exploratory.
2003-08-02 Scents and Subtle Sounds Limestone, ME 8:36 -> in from "Seven Below." A nice straightforward version of "S&SS" is sandwiched between nice fat slices of "Seven Below." -> back to "Seven Below."
2004-06-23 Scents and Subtle Sounds Noblesville, IN 12:16 No intro. At first sedate and soothing, the jam grows increasingly dissonant and tension filled, with an almost growly anger to it. Very improvisational version that includes an "NO2" tease.
2004-08-12 Scents and Subtle Sounds Camden, NJ 21:14 No intro. Very improvisational version that ranges from edgy and propulsive to subdued and ends with increasing dissonance and space-like strong effects.
2015-08-12 Scents and Subtle Sounds Philadelphia, PA 14:43 Only the second "S&SS" with intro (SBIX) in 3.0, this version shows few signs of rust and has excellent vocals throughout. The jam starts off largely in-the-box, but Trey and Mike slowly tug at the seams until Fishman pushes the rest of the band towards a throbbing two-note pattern and a brief peak before more clean vocals bring it back home.
2017-07-15 Scents and Subtle Sounds Chicago, IL 12:03 -> in from "Light". Trey hits on a cool repeating pattern at the start, and a bright, quicksilver groove emerges with Page and Mike at the forefront. Page goes to his synths and things turn inward and weirder, with Fish taking the reins, before the jam explodes back to life with some tremendous stop-start jamming. They return to rock-out territory, then -> neatly into "Cities".
2017-08-04 Scents and Subtle Sounds New York, NY 16:34 Moves quickly into a sprightly upbeat zone with sharp playing from Trey and Page giving the ivories a good workout. The band shifts to a new gear and builds to a squealing fireball peak, replete with a "NMINML" tease. Downshifts into a casual, almost tropical groove (helped by Mike's relaxed basslines and Fish's metronomic work), a groove reminiscent of some 2.0 jams. > into a superb "Caspian". Longest modern era version to date.
2018-08-08 Scents and Subtle Sounds Camden, NJ 12:07 Played with the intro for only the 3rd time in 3.0 (SBIX, 8/12/15). A warm and delicate jam builds out of the verses proper, which morphs into a darker zone with Page and Mike taking point as Trey goes to his effects. Builds to a pretty sweet peak as Trey takes the reins, then comes to a gentle close.
