Live Photos: Phish Rings in the New Year at Madison Square Garden

After reuniting in 2009, the jam band gods and improv savants of Phish honed both their studio and live personas into one fluid, bombastic entity. Produced by classic rock veteran Bob Ezrin, LPs Fuego (2014) and Big Boat (2016) offer some of the most buoyant, streamlined recordings in the group’s three-decade-plus trajectory. Those tracks and the live quartet’s sprawling performances melded gorgeously on the last night of 2016 at Madison Square Garden. Check out Adam McCullough’s gallery for harmonies, solos and an obscene number of balloons.
