In a world of ice cold funk, few can compare to the 4 goofballs known as Phish. Check out their recently uploaded video for "Tweezer" performed at Hampton Coliseum this past Sunday night.
This is a pro-shot video that was simulcast at livephish.com, with multiple cameras both close up on the musicians as well as some far away shots so you can appreciate the mind blowing light show that's a staple of all Phish concerts.
It's a funky, psychedelic Tweezer that goes on for almost 24 minutes. It also gets especially jazzy, as they seem to tease the riff from Joe Zawinul's "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy" in the middle of the jam before going into some Miles Davis In A Silent Way type of jam. Things get pretty dark and spacey with lots of the weird sonic textures that are the a hallmark of a good Phish concert. As Page McConnell vibes on his Fender Rhodes keyboard and Trey Anastasio rides the feedback drenched sustain of his guitar, bass player Mike Gordon briefly picks up a power drill before thinking better of it and instead choosing to play bass with his fingers. The group comes together, holding down a loose ambient groove that fades away quietly.
