Ah, Seattle ’94. June 13th really is one of their last great shows. Here’s one of the many great bits- a fantastic little jam! After a very nice ‘Terrapin’, this jam emerges, twisting and twinkling. After a few minutes, the of the ‘Rhythm Devils’ takes control. It’s a good half hour from a very human beat, virtually to alien communication, and back down needing a ‘Miracle’.
I am a fan of drums->space. Though I think the set format would have benefited from more maliability, there’s no denying where the out-there playing could be found in any given show after ’77. There’s such a creative gravity that it even can help inspire the songs it interpoles.
