Cincinnati: 11/20&21/2009 Reviews and Photos [JamBase]
The most consistently thrilling trend in modern Phishdom is the band’s ability to reach what amounts to a set-capping peak, then come right back with an even stronger blast. Still riding high on the “Elastic” vibe, the band built an engaging “Gotta Jibboo,” a steady swell of intensity as Trey gradually cranked his noodle to 11. The jam hit its natural peak, but Trey was not finished; he rallied the troops for a further few bars of ebullience before the warm-n-fuzzy coda. Then, to push the set from good to great, “Fluffhead” for dessert.
