Jerry's chromatics liquified my face. Total acid-drenched mindmeld.

Unreal mind-melting jam. Just past midnight and the boys are already pouncing into the 70's.

Friggin' awesome version. Jerry keeps coming back for more, melting faces in the process.

Something about this particular show has a spooky and insanely pulled-together vibe. Jazzmaster Jerry's solos in the transitional jam (a particularly long one at that) are pure laser beams. Phil and the rest of the boys are bouncing like mad. Tempo is friggin' perfect. Even with the abrupt ending this one is on fire.

Such a dank version. It's got an effortless shuffling swagger to it that, at certain fleeting moments, almost seems to exude/forecast R&B trip-hop vibes of the mid-90's. Jerry and the boys are so immersed in this jam, and the crowd is going nuts. One hell of a long applause at the end. The middle part of the jam is a perfect example of Jerry always knowing exactly what your mind needs, then promptly proceeding to dose it with megawatts of raw, surgically-precise, liquid lightning-bolt energy delivered straight to the synapses. All with an acoustic guitar.
