Jam Chart for 46 Days (35 entries)

Date City Timing Notes
2003-01-02 Hampton, VA 20:58 Debut. Jam gradually settles down from high powered "46 Days"-style in to a subtle, Trey and Page led foray. Picking up rhythm and energy, there are "CYHMK" teases as the jam builds in intensity. Settles down at the ending with no return to "46 Days" proper.
2003-07-21 Noblesville, IN 14:46 Jam moves on from the typical hard driving standard to some really serene, quiet thoughtful space. With lots of little twists and turns, this one is very improvisational. > to "Tweezer."
2003-08-03 Limestone, ME 38:30 Haunting, thrumming, mind blowing, and masterful. The band wastes little time departing from "46 Days" and descends into an underworld soundscape filled with all sorts of chilling effects, eerie sounds and more. After nearly 20 minutes of deep exploration, the band resurfaces with 15 minutes of (appropriately) low intensity, more musically oriented improvisation, and ultimately finishes off "46 Days" in the closing minutes.
2004-06-17 Brooklyn, NY 16:24 Moves beyond "46 Days" into a swirling, more sedate segment. Jam then picks up a nice rhythmic pulse and great groove. The jam grows increasingly energized and intense, with a textbook -> to "Possum."
2009-08-15 Columbia, MD 16:23 Jam breaks away from "46 Days" into a spacey, quiet mode, then Trey and Fish pick things up into a really great, pulsing and upbeat vibe. Another improvisationally rich version.
2009-11-18 Detroit, MI 11:08 Nice funky rhythmic section develops where "46 Days" would typically wind down. Some great Page.
2010-10-12 Broomfield, CO 8:16 A fiery version all around with a rocking outro based around a great riff from Trey.
2013-07-05 Saratoga Springs, NY 9:10 The jam settles down gradually, then Trey and Fish have a little back-and-forth jam, followed by a Page/Mike back-and-forth jam which -> cleanly to "Steam."
2013-07-30 Stateline, NV 8:42 Nice funky and rocking section with great Mike emerges on the back side of the standard "46 Days" jam and > to "BORW."
2014-08-29 Commerce City, CO 9:39 A nice low-key and increasingly funky jam develops on the back end of "46 Days" proper.
2015-01-02 Miami, FL 9:50 At 5:40, the jam breaks into dark, funky groove with Page working the B-3. Great teaming by all four as each adds color to a solid version.
2015-07-28 Del Valle, TX 4:25 "46 Days" -> "The Dogs" -> "46 Days." The first section of "46 Days" is standard, but the back end section includes a nice low-key outro jam.
2015-07-28 Del Valle, TX 5:15 -> in from "The Dogs" to complete this sandwich. This section has a nice chill outro jam that > to "Piper."
2015-08-11 Philadelphia, PA 8:17 The customary instrumental bridge has some filthy, raw tone, then there's a great compact spacey but upbeat jam at the end which covers a surprising amount of terrain and -> to "Taste."
2015-08-15 Columbia, MD 16:25 An angry, dissonant and pulsing jam emerges at first, settles a bit, then grows melodic and soothing with nice Fender-Rhodes action from Page. Familiar bliss type jamming then briefly takes hold until a -> to "Bug."
2015-08-22 Watkins Glen, NY 14:15 The jam moves beyond the rocking norm to some dark probing, before gradually shifting to serene and introspective exploration. After swelling to a modest peak, the jam -> to "BDTNL."
2015-09-04 Commerce City, CO 10:23 Following the final refrain, a shortish but solid, percussive and initially driving jam begins to diminish, seemingly poised to explore further, but > to "Antelope" instead.
2016-09-02 Commerce City, CO 8:54 Trey restrains his playing at the outset, giving the jam a more deliberate pace and also providing space for additional band interplay. What results is a gripping, edgier take which makes the final ratchet up all the sweeter.
2017-08-01 New York, NY 12:01 Seriously rocking version becomes seriously percussive. Strong, funky, full-band play finds Trey, Page, and Mike breaking from their rigs to join Fish upon his kit. Trey picks a nifty little line upon the Marimba Lumina - lifted from his play preceding "Drums" - and a cool, upbeat jam ensues. Seriously percussive version then becomes seriously spacey. Back with their instruments, the four gel to create a sonic outro which smartly >'s into "Piper".
2017-09-03 Commerce City, CO 10:03 Breaking quickly for instrumental playing, the jam gets down and dirty, with spacey Trey and Page effects, layered over a solid bass and drum foundation. Although it never strays too far from home, this one is no typical stroll in the park.
2018-07-24 San Francisco, CA 11:09 Although it keeps to the "46 Days" format, this show-opening version offers a surprising amount of atypical play, mostly from Trey who utilizes new tones to color the jam.
2018-09-02 Commerce City, CO 10:47 364 Days later, the band delivers yet another strong Dick's version, continuing what is now an unmistakable tradition (see: 8/29/14; 9/4/15; 9/2/16; and 9/3/17). Mike's play is great, and Fish settles in nicely, riding his cymbals, the musicians establishing a theme that will carry through great versions of "Tweezer" and "Golden Age". Trey's play in particular impresses, as he shears distinct blocks of sound as means to offer up great melodic / harmonic variation. Strong soloing bleeds to the first of two truly memorable ->.
2018-10-20 Hampton, VA 9:12 Here we find "46 Days" at its most punishing in a jam that gets downright grisly as the tension mounts past 5:30 and builds to the first seismic peak. Not to be outdone, in the post-lyrics section Fish thrashes his kit for a bone-crunching finale.
2018-12-29 New York, NY 12:22 Around 5:30, the playing shifts from the usual fire and brimstone stuff to a quieter, percussive groove. As Page and Trey link up, the jam develops energy and a brighter tone. The band neatly modifies the energy up and down several times, before cleverly -> to "Cities."
2019-06-29 Camden, NJ 10:06 A thick churn of clav, filtered bass, and growling guitar suddenly morphs at 5:20 into a triumphant release with a powerful peak.
2021-08-28 George, WA 10:11 More melodically variable and far less guitar-dominated than most, the band gets dark and down in this tempered, almost subdued take.
2021-10-16 San Francisco, CA 11:29 Around the 5:00 mark the jam enters a more dynamic space, allowing for flourishes by all four in a strong collective effort. Mellows out in the final minutes for a very pleasant ending and -> "Slave".
2021-10-26 Santa Barbara, CA 11:10 Lays on the the tension and then devolves into a densely tangled knot akin to the sound of industrial machinery sputtering out of control, then makes an abrupt return for the final chorus and > "Sally".
2021-10-28 Las Vegas, NV 14:24 After some typical rocking the jam falls into a black hole of sinister cosmic energy and claws its way out the other side for an uplifting conclusion.
2022-02-27 Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico 12:35 Almost immediately pivots into a spacious and warm groove, thanks to Trey and Page melding nicely while Fish does some fancy rhythmic work and Mike holds down the fort. Pivots into something darker and harder at Trey's urging, then neatly resolves back into "46 Days".
2022-05-31 Charleston, SC 8:31 Another deceptive offering from Spring '22 provides about four minutes of type 2 exploration in the opening slot of the encore. While not accompanied by a massive peak, fluid and enjoyable jamming from all four members will have you bopping your head with a smile on your face.
2022-08-02 Cuyahoga Falls, OH 9:02 The typical rock-out jam gives way to a brief but profound diminuendo which ends > "YEM".
2023-08-04 New York, NY 11:42 Jam starts with typical play before the band hooks up on a major key motif. High level interplay follows, and Trey touches the sky with a long, sustained note which culminates in a full band crescendo. The energy shifts towards minor key before returning to the "46 Days" riff to close.
2023-09-02 Commerce City, CO 13:51 A surprising but smooth segue out of new song "Ether Edge" begins this wild version of the perennial Dick's favorite. Fishman's heavy attack provides the base on which the band bangs out a percussive stomp of rhythmic interplay. Trey engages with snarl early on, setting an aggressive tone before lightening things up, turning on the melody machine, and leading the band over a groove laden double-peak that > to "The Howling". Exceptional.
2023-10-14 Chicago, IL 8:44 > from "Tube". Echoing the 8/3/18 "Carini", there's a full-on "Chest Fever" jam played soon after the song proper finishes. Even after winding back to the chorus of the song, Trey can't help but fall back into "Chest Fever" mode one more time. Truly unique version.
