A solid workout with a well-rendered buildup and a yelping SSDD

Much appreciated, as there soon comes a time when its more sporadic in the repertoire

Notes in the break stuffed to the rafters -- incredible.

I can see where not being in the room might compromise appreciation, even though I was fortunate to have been there. But that solo is a prime example of how that x-factor is always right there, waiting just below the surface, ready to sneak up on you before you know it -- bursting forth to grab everyone’s attention and turning that place into one. This is the passage into another dimension that kept us coming back… and even if you didn’t hitchhike across the country eating PB&Js you can understand why. And of course the whole show is great – another special engagement in the privileged experience of having your mind blown so many times you’ve happily lost track.

Stunning power jam chaser - sounds like they’re going to reprise the Saint crescendo/ return

Huge wave on this one. Inexplicably buried in this list. Pounces almost as hard as the blowout on 2/9.
