Scott Bernstein of Hidden Track reflects on his first Phish show. A really nice read.
As Phish wound their way through Maze I started to focus in on what each musician was adding to the mix. I noticed how bassist Mike Gordon would carve a path for guitarist Trey Anastasio to expertly lay down frenetic runs of notes. Next, I watched as Page McConnell got intense swirling organ tones out of his setup. But the thing that stuck out to me most was how all four members of Phish communicated with each other without using words. Every member of the band was looking down, but just as Trey’s solo in Maze reached a boiling point the jam stopped on a dime. Up until then I didn’t realize a band could improvise and be tight.

The jam out of Ya Mar is phenomenal.
Notes via Phish.net: This show was taped for VH-1’s Hard Rock Live and was first broadcast on July 1, 2000. The show was announced only a week before the gig took place. Non-transferable wristbands for entry were sold at the venue box office the morning before the show, with a limit of one per person. Ya Mar included an extended jam in the abnormal key of “A” at Trey’s on-stage request.
Earlier this week on phantasytour a member under the handle “Am_I_Winehoused” posted the following pictures under the thread topic "Quality #1":
Obviously, one could only presume they are hammering out new material or possibly reworking Time Turns Elastic. But seriously, I really cannot help but wonder what size shoes Tom wears? The dude is tall.
