n00b100 This is generally considered one of the best jams Phish has played in 3.0 (and not only that .0, either...), and quite rightfully so. From the end of Waves proper, Mike takes over and the jam moves into a weirder range before hitting on something of a theme and exploring it, Trey's odd guitar tone melding well with Page's organ work as Fish pushes the tempo. This is definitely strange stuff, the sort of thing they generally play only at soundchecks (or when they're really feeling it during a show), and after a quick discussion they move into a more melodic (but no less driving) jam, Mike still taking the lead as Trey starts coaxing some weird noises out of his guitar. Page starts going to the theremin (I think), Trey finds a really interesting riff, and we enter the passage for which this jam is most famous, an absolutely *gorgeous* segment where every single member is equally contributing to the music that is just flowing forth. This jam is pretty much the stuff of legend, and if you haven't heard it yet, I urge to you to do so as strongly as I possibly can.
