Jam Chart for Suzy Greenberg (18 entries)

Date City Timing Notes
1987-02-13 Johnson, VT 9:18 Debut. The Dude of Life on vocals. The Dude sounds kind of frustrated and angry in this version.
1990-11-17 Somerville, MA 6:27 Includes a full band "Low Rider" jam and subsequent tease from Trey.
1991-09-27 Rochester, NY 5:12 Great Page and Fish on this rocking version, who briefly drive the ship into out of bounds territory. Timing may be longer due to a cut in the recording.
1995-10-31 Rosemont, IL 7:30 Dave Grippo on alto saxophone, Don Glasgo on trombone, and Joey Sommerville on trumpet. Excellent version with a distinctly bluesy feel to it.
1996-07-12 Amsterdam, Netherlands 5:47 Caps the second set of one of Phish's most maligned (misunderstood?) shows. Accounts suggest the band, following an unfinished "Suzy" (every song in the set is either unfinished, or has missing lyrics), leaves Fish onstage to maintain a "slow, hypnotic, beat." Maybe so / Maybe not. (Seems like Fish sat on-stage between sets One and Two.) Regardless, an unusual beat begins near the 2:00 mark, after which Trey lays way back, Page moves front and center, and a strange, atypical jam ensues before the band "breaks" for Set Three.
1996-10-31 Atlanta, GA 6:28 Karl Perazzo on percussion, Dave Grippo on saxophone, and Gary Gazaway on trumpet. "Born Under Punches" tease from Page. This excellent version has a completely different feel to it than 10/31/95, despite the similar addition of horns. This one has more of a jazz-like vibe to it, as well as strong percussion.
1996-11-13 Minneapolis, MN 6:35 -> to an excellent, wide ranging "Jam" follows "Suzy" proper. At first a typically rhythmic '96 jam with Trey on the mini percussion set up and Page jumping around different keyboards, it morphs into an upbeat, driving jam, even adding a little psychedelic edge near the ending > to "Prince Caspian."
1996-12-06 Las Vegas, NV 9:17 Guest artists include Les Claypool, Larry LaLonde, Courtney Gains, the Yodeling Cowgirls, and several Elvis impersonators. One of the Elvis impersonators leads a "Susie Q" jam at the end of "Suzy."
1997-02-23 Cortemaggiore, Italy 8:24 "Suzy" gets some funk!
1997-03-18 Burlington, VT 7:59 Version benefits from excellent contributions from musicians Grippo (alto sax) and Harvey (trombone), but Mike may steal the show, here. Fun, Funky, Phish.
1999-07-25 Noblesville, IN 10:05 Awesome version that Includes a jam based on Stevie Wonder's "I Wish" and a syncopated jam built around Page.
2000-09-14 Darien Center, NY 9:19 The band breaks into a fantastic rhythmic and slightly funky jam after the second verse which continues until 8:00. Following the final verse and customary conclusion, the band continues on, > to "Jam," an awesome "Suzy"-like set closing improv session.
2003-12-28 Miami, FL 5:36 Jarring, near heavy metal-like "Jam" breaks out after the second verse of "Suzy." Gnarly and raw, it eventually mellows into space before transitioning to "Theme From The Bottom."
2004-06-17 Brooklyn, NY 18:23 Multifaceted jam follows the final verse and refrain. At first rhythmic and plucky, it gradually becomes more intense, then grows slightly spacey, and intensifies again before finally settling with a > to "Axilla."
2004-08-11 Mansfield, MA 9:10 Most excellent version with incredible Page action on the B-3 during "Suzy" and great Fish. The band then extends the jam following the final verse with a -> to "DwD."
2009-10-31 Indio, CA 11:37 Sharon Jones and Saundra Williams on backup vocals, and Dave Guy, David Smith, and Tony Jarvis on trumpet, trombone, and saxophone, respectively. Outstanding, stretched out (but otherwise straightforward) version.
2010-08-07 Berkeley, CA 10:42 Band adds a nice 4 plus minute jam to the back end of "Suzy." Trey teases "Living After Midnight." > to "Slave."
2016-09-02 Commerce City, CO 7:27 Some great back and forth between the Chairman of the Boards and Fish and Trey on percussion results in an even more energized than typical version.
Jam chart versions are selected because of improvisational and other characteristics that distinguish these from typical versions of the song.
