Reviews: Phish Hooks Vibe at Toyota Park [Chicago Tribune]

As usual, most of the excitement stemmed from the band’s spontaneity and instrumental prowess. Anastasio and keyboardist Page McConnell often opted for funky themes, accenting the quirky ” Wolfman’s Brother” and loose “Boogie On Reggae Woman” with passages that could’ve been lifted from Miles Davis’ 1970s fusion works. The group navigated sharp turns and tempo changes with the powerful grace of a German-engineered sports car, manipulating tones on a psychedelic “Light” and building crescendos on ” David Bowie” to a feverish peak.
