Jam Chart for shows in the city of Santa Barbara, CA (10 entries)

Date Song City Timing Notes
1994-05-17 Runaway Jim Santa Barbara, CA 8:17 More great tone with Trey quickly breaking to solo, alternating between rapid-fire play and measured blasts of sustain. Fish picks up the pattern, with the musicians swapping ideas. Trey then really, really, leans into his pedal to shape his sound, with the band breaking to peak before the song's closing refrain. Cool version, and a sign of things to come.
2014-10-21 CDT Santa Barbara, CA 15:49 A very nice jam which gradually works away from the standard. Fish keeps the rhythm largely grounded in "CDT" while the others explore an interesting, pleasant landscape.
2014-10-22 Drowned Santa Barbara, CA 14:28 First '14 version bears resemblance to several "CDTs" from Summer '14 which range widely, but never latch onto a consistent groove, although this ends in good dark terrain.
2014-10-22 Theme Santa Barbara, CA 10:22 A typically fluid "Theme" jam takes a turn from the bottom to the side with an "Echoes"-like (Pink Floyd) jam, replete with Gilmour licks, before sliding and modulating seamlessly -> Steam.
2014-10-22 SOAMule Santa Barbara, CA 10:47 A wild one. Page's solo is more of a crazed Page/Trey duet. Fish follows on Marimba Lumina with ghoulish howling by others > klezmer > weird Mike chanting > conclusion.
2021-10-26 Pebbles and Marbles Santa Barbara, CA 19:30 First appearance as an opener produces its most expansive jam to date, mixing in darker-tinged riffing and soothing meditation along with the usual triumphant outro. Unfinished -> "Makisupa".
2021-10-26 Sample Santa Barbara, CA 7:36 Only the second jam "Jar" on the books at the time (see BD), this version strays from typical around 4 minutes with some sprightly musing and ends unfinished > to the Phish debut of "The Sliver Light".
2021-10-26 Halley's Santa Barbara, CA 11:25 > from the debut of "The Silver Light". The renaissance of "Halley's" continues. Some swinging play turns into a full-on "Oye Como Va" jam by 9:00. The band vamps on the Santana classic for a couple minutes until it fizzles > "Mountains in the Mist."
2021-10-26 Beneath a Sea of Stars Part 1 Santa Barbara, CA 13:09 > out of "Blaze On". A version worthy of the wonderful 7/9/19 "Sea of Stars", with the band building up a torrid and bilious fog on stage reminiscent of a good "Split Open and Melt" and Fishman keeping everything glued together. Very deep and powerful music.
2021-10-26 46 Days Santa Barbara, CA 11:10 Lays on the the tension and then devolves into a densely tangled knot akin to the sound of industrial machinery sputtering out of control, then makes an abrupt return for the final chorus and > "Sally".
