With everything happening in America in the wake of the murder of George Floyd, we felt it necessary to step back and discuss our thoughts, as well as how we're communicating racism and the constant pursuit of equality in our country to our kids. We also felt it important to acknowledge that we haven't done enough as podcasters to highlight the music of black artists, especially those who are up and coming, and we commit to do better. We've also included information about a few organizations we've donated to that we'd encourage you to as well. Finally, we compiled a playlist of some of the black artists who paved the way for the music we love, as well as those making music today that are blowing our minds. We'll be back next week with our previously scheduled Episode 099: Top Albums of 2020 (So Far). In the meantime, be well, be safe, and please keep pushing at the system for widespread reform. It is possible to finally realize the values of the American experiment in this generation. Songs featured in this episode: - Archie Shepp: "Blues For Brother George Jackson" - Moses Sumney: "Virile" - Nerija: "Riverfest" - John Coltrane: "My Favorite Things" - Leon Thomas: "The Creator Has A Master Plan (Peace)" - Sudan Archives: "Limitless" - Cameron Graves: "El Diablo: - Alice Coltrane: "Going Home" Organizations we recommend donating to: - Color Of Change: Color Of Change is the nation’s largest online racial justice organization. Help people respond effectively to injustice in the world around us. As a national online force driven by 1.7 million members, we move decision-makers in corporations and government to create a more human and less hostile world for Black people in America. - ACLU: Legal Services and support to those with a wide range of civil rights complaints; have been at the forefront of fighting for civil rights for decades. - NAACP Legal Defense & Education Fund: America’s top legal firm fighting for racial justice. - The Bail Project: Seeking to end the racial and economic disparities in the bail system, and help pay bail for those who cannot afford it. Has paid bail for more than 10,000 people since its founding in 2007 - Black Mamas Matter Alliance: This is a partnership between the Center for Reproductive Rights (CRR) and SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective that was founded in 2013. Mission statement is to center Black mothers to advocate, drive research, build power and shift culture for Black maternal health, rights and justice. Women’s reproductive rights and maternal health are causes near and dear to our hearts.

In Episode 098 we chat about the languid and mysterious version of Ghost from May 22, 2000, at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, NY. To do so, we’re joined by Robert Ker (@bobbker /@phish2000at2020) to chat about the larger themes around the jam & run, plus dive deep into the worlds of krautrock & early-aughts NYC. An almost entirely Mike-led jam, it extends onward through minimal changes, for nearly 30min. Throughout much of it, Trey avoids taking leads, allowing all the lessons of the past four years to dictate the jams' development. It’s a hazy and woozy wonderland of groove-based, linear musical communication, and one of the best jams of an incredible year in jamming.

In Episode 097 we deep-dive one of our favorite bands of all time: Pavement. To do so, we bring on one of our close friends & returning guest, PJ Rudolph (@axillapt3) to chat about the band’s lasting legacy, our favorite records, the fantastic solo work of Stephen Malkmus, and their connections to Phish. PJ joined us in Episode 074: Remembering David Berman, and we were stoked to have him back on the pod to talk about the larger world of the Pavement/Jicks/Silver Jews world, albeit under happier circumstances. Akin to Episode 017: Wilco w/ Josh Carver, Episode 033/034: U2 w/ Ryan Nichols, and Episode 065: Radiohead w/ Myke “Lawn Memo” Menio, we approach Pavement from their discography chronologically walking through their career, before concluding with a larger discussion around the prolific solo career of Stephen Malkmus.

In Episode 096 we discuss the longest and wildest take on Backwards Down The Number Line from Phish’s Summer 2009 Tour Finale at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center in Saratoga Springs, NY. We’re joined at the top by Dr. Kevin Finkel (Episode 088: Broadway Phish), anesthesiologist at Hartford Hospital, to discuss his experiences on the front lines of COVID-19, before letting him forget about work for a bit to dive into Summer 2009 Phish with us. We discuss the challenges the band faced in their first tour in five years, but also, the moments of brilliance that emerged from it.

In Episode 095 we discuss the infectious and groove-driven jam off Gotta Jibboo from February 20, 2003 at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois. A relentless example in hooked-up candy jamming, this Jibboo feels plucked out of Summer 1998, or an example of the joy that emitted from Fall 2013, dropped here, unexpectedly, in the dimly lit era of 2.0 Phish. Try all you might, I dare you to forego a massive dance party in your house to this jam. Songs featured in this episode are: LCD Soundsystem: “All My Friends” Carly Rae Jepsen: “Cut To The Feeling” Big Walter Horton: “The Honeydripper” Elmore James: “Dust My Broom” — — — In addition, we discuss two new 2020 records we highly recommend: Horse Lords: “The Common Task” and Tan Cologne: “Cave Vaults on the Moon in New Mexico” — — — We encourage all BTP listeners to check out The Drop on Osiris Media. — — — We are proud to be sponsored by Harry’s!

In Episode 094 we discus the blissful & ethereal jam off Led Zeppelin’s Ramble On from August 12, 1998 at Vernon Downs, NY. A classic example of the Brian Eno Ambient Style of jamming that had infused Phish’s sound throughout Summer 1998, this is a gorgeous, late-Set I summertime jam that we cannot get enough of right now.

In Episode 093 we discuss the wild and experimental jam off Funky Bitch on November 22, 1994 from Columbia, MO. Deep in the heart of November 1994, the band leapt off a Jon Fishman mistake into a 25 minute jam that helped to define the larger goals of the era. Songs featured in this episode are: Mosses: “TV Sun” Tortoise: “TNT” Steve Mason: “Lonely” — — — In addition, we discuss two new 2020 records we highly recommend: Matt Lajoie: “Everlasting Spring” and Steven Malkmus: “Traditional Techniques” — — — We encourage all BTP Listeners to check out Amigos w/ Mike Finoia on Osiris Media. — — — Did you know that music can accelerate child brain development and strengthen intellectual, emotional, and motor skills, as well as overall literacy? Bringing music into the classroom can help kids explore the mind-body connection and become comfortable with self-expression. Sadly, many children’s music programs are lacking in the resources they need to let kids explore this creative space. That’s why Osiris is happy to partner with The Mockingbird Foundation. Founded in 1996, The Mockingbird Foundation is a volunteer-run non-profit organization dedicated to improving access to music education for America’s youth. Each year, the Foundation awards grants to dozens of music education programs, and funds those grants through a combination of fundraising, publishing, and the curation of Phish.net, one of the earliest Internet fan communities. Mockingbird is entirely volunteer, with no staff, no salaries, and no office — so every dollar really does make a difference in providing children’s music programs with the staffing, instruments, and support they need. The foundation gives over 100–150,000 dollars every year in grants. To donate or to learn more, visit mbird.org.

In Episode 091 we assess Phish’s fourth run in Mexico, focusing on what very well may be the best version of Waves we’ve ever heard. Following last year’s high quality run, the band returned with what felt like a vengeance, throwing down rarities, jams, and excellent sets throughout the entire weekend. Songs featured in this episode are: John Moreland: “I’m Learning How To Tell Myself The Truth” Kvelertak: “Bratebrann” Neil Young: “When Your Lonely Heart Breaks” The Fiery Furnaces: “Chris Michaels” — — —  We encourage all BTP Listeners to check out Inside Out w/ Turner & Seth for all your Jamband news & interviews. — — —  Did you know that music can accelerate child brain development and strengthen intellectual, emotional, and motor skills, as well as overall literacy? Bringing music into the classroom can help kids explore the mind-body connection and become comfortable with self-expression. Sadly, many children’s music programs are lacking in the resources they need to let kids explore this creative space. That’s why Osiris is happy to partner with The Mockingbird Foundation. Founded in 1996, The Mockingbird Foundation is a volunteer-run non-profit organization dedicated to improving access to music education for America’s youth. Each year, the Foundation awards grants to dozens of music education programs, and funds those grants through a combination of fundraising, publishing, and the curation of Phish.net, one of the earliest Internet fan communities. Mockingbird is entirely volunteer, with no staff, no salaries, and no office — so every dollar really does make a difference in providing children’s music programs with the staffing, instruments, and support they need. The foundation gives over 100–150,000 dollars every year in grants. To donate or to learn more, visit mbird.org. That’s M-B-I-R-D — dot- org — — —  If you’re like me, things like Music, Running, and Cooking all bring me happiness and meaning. However there are times where even the things you rely on for happiness are not enough to help you achieve your goals. The good news is, BetterHelp Online Counseling Is there for you.

February 11, 2020
In Episode 089 we discuss the advanced jam off "David Bowie" from April 8, 1992. At a time when the band was rarely flirting with deep improv, this shock jam off "David Bowie" hears them toying with a "Tweezer Reprise" jam before experimenting with Post-Peak Jamming in a calypso-ladened jam that feels four years ahead of its time.
January 28, 2020

December 23, 2019

Winding down the east coast, through five venues, the band played zero repeats, thus showcasing their vastly expanded song catalogue, while also displaying their ability to weave together quality sets without a single 20+min jam. We break down the tour (run) into a number of categories, offering our thoughts on the tour (run).
December 5, 2019
In Episode 083 we sat down with two of our favorite musicians, Ryley Walker & Ryan Jewell for a wide-ranging interview and jam session following a fantastic Thanksgiving Dinner. In addition, we took in Ryley & Ryan's wild & improvisational opening set on 11/29/2019 at the Bluebird Theater in Denver, CO, featuring Neil Hagerty. The guys were a great hang and played us some fantastic tunes and shed some light on some of our favorite music of the last few years.
November 19, 2019
In Episode 082 we conclude our 20th Anniversary celebration of the Big Cypress Festival with a discussion of the massive pre-dawn jam off Roses Are Free in the early hours of January 1, 2000.

November 12, 2019
In Episode 081 we sat down with Chef Bryan Lee Weaver (@BryanLeeWeaver) of the Butcher & Bee and the RedHeaded Stranger for a wide-ranging discussion about cooking, music, and his journey as a chef.

In Episode 078 we discuss the wild and highly experimental "Suzy Greenberg" from Brooklyn, New York, on June 17, 2004.

September 24, 2019

September 9, 2019
In Episode 076 we turn our focus northwards, highlighting an electric version of "Tweezer" from Vancouver, BC on September 9, 1999. A twenty-minute monster that begins in near silence before exploding into a wild Trey-led peak that feels never-ending until it fades into a two-minute ambient bliss jam. Emblematic of the shoegaze jams that dotted the year, this is an excellent example of the style the band employed at the end of the century.
September 6, 2019

A sublime take on a song that's rarely known for its beauty  -  save for 07/06/2013  -  this fit the setting and the blissful spin into Y2K the band employed during the final few days of the previous Millennium.
June 4, 2019
In Episode 066 we turn the clock back to Summer 1997 for an exploration of the RAGEFUNK Phish was experimenting with at the peak of their transition towards Fall 1997's fully-realized creative rebirth. With a focus on the massive, 25+ minute "Ghost" the band played on July 23, 1997, we focus on the new style the band was employing within their improvisation, and the impact this had during the first ten days of their Summer 1997 US Tour.
