During the summer of '89, the members of Phish as well as Russell Remington and others performed a weekly series of performances of jazz standards under the moniker "The Johnny B. Fishman Jazz Ensemble." This is the only specific known date and was first reported by phish.com. There is no known recording or setlist.

kipmat If you've heard other Spring 1989 shows like 4/15/89 or 5/28/89, you may recall Trey encouraging people to go hear "the Johnny B. Fishman Jazz Ensemble". These gigs probably weren't recorded because the group were likely without their crew or any sound system. I can imagine a cozy restaurant with soft lighting, the band in "business casual" outfits, tucked into a corner or maybe out on a patio, playing "Take The A-Train" and "Misty" while patrons enjoyed a glass of chablis with their filet sole.
