Albany: Phish In Albany – 11/28 Review [JeremyGoodwin]

The band was clearly out to prove it can still swing in the rarefied territory of full-band improvisation that is so melodious and rocking it sounds composed. A one-two wallop of “Seven Below” and “Ghost” filled up the first forty-five minutes of the second set with a handful of jams bringing the energy flow between band and audience into high resolution. Spontaneous waves of elated ovation synchronized with a cascading series of peaks led by guitarist Trey Anastasio, with strong assistance here from Page McConnell on keyboards. (Lighting designer Chris Kuroda, an artist at the top of his field, deserves mention as well.)
