Jam | Phish 

The last time I saw Phish, the band's management granted me permission to photograph the band for the first three songs. Twenty minutes later I was still in the pit and Phish was still on its first song. These cats are the kings of the extrapolated jam. Phish emerged out of the fertile Vermont hippy scene in 1983 and soon claimed the crown previously worn by The Dead. Though the band — and primarily guitarist extraordinaire Trey Anastasio — mixes virtually every style imaginable, there still is a focused joy and ability to drive free of the clutter that bogs other jammers down.

Phish performs Tuesday, October 22, 7:30 p.m., at Blue Cross Arena, 1 War Memorial Square. $65. bluecrossarena.com.
