The Moma Dance

fhqwhgads There is a four-note figure resembling John Coltrane's A Love Supreme near the beginning of the jam proper, later what sounds like a tentative group-mind decision to segue into The Lizards (thankfully, they keep jamming Moma), and a few minutes before the > into Breath and Burning there's a part of the jam that sounds somewhat like a slightly slower version of the portion of the 12/31/99 Split Open and Melt right before it segues into Catapult. That's quite a lot of interesting musical intertextuality, in my humble opinion.

fhqwhgads I could deal with a lot more versions of The Moma Dance like this. There's so much potential in the funkengroove, and most versions do little to reveal its real ultimate power.

n00b100 There are jams from last year, even great jams from last year, that don't approach the musical power of this truly unexpected jam. One of the reasons why you can't go ahead and just write 2016 off.

makisupaman Far and away my favorite version from 3.0. Trey seemed especially hungry, encouraged in part by the momentousness of the occasion as well as by his near flawless execution of the rarely performed Peaches that preceded it. The wave of reaction as the song concludes speaks volumes.
