Saw something on Live for Live Music this morning about Phish playing Jazz Fest on this day in 1996 and 2014. It reminded me of this recording. I went down to Jazz Fest in '96 with my soon to be wife Wendy. Our first real trip together. We were there for the first weekend of the festival. Phish played Friday night the 26th, just before the funky Meters. We would take in as much of the music as possible and I would just let the tape roll for most of it. We were probably just wondering around on Sunday the 28th when we happened upon the Fais Do-Do stage. Upon noticing Trey, I started recording. Trey played with Bruce Barnes for the whole set but I missed a fair amount both at the beginning and at the end (maybe). I believe we cut out early to catch Lionel Hampton's set. I was also fortunate to get a picture with Fishman at the Fais stage.
Trey sat in for the entire set, playing along with Sunspots� guitarist Jim Kebodeaux. Garbage Can Woman featured Sunpie (on harmonica), Jim, and Trey sitting on the edge of the stage after Sunpie said: �I don�t think they can hear us. Let�s get out on the porch.� This performance was part of the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival and took place on the Fais Do-Do Stage; Phish had performed earlier in the weekend on the Main Stage of JazzFest.
