We can only hope... I was honestly beyond bored with Trey's sound... It was cool for awhile, but seemed more and more redundant with each successive tour. It's about time he switched things up, and losing the horns is definitely a step in the right direction... I miss the delay loop from '99/'00 Phish, hopefully he brings it back...

I'm not knocking horns, just how Trey's band had far too many of them in far too many songs... I like some horns now and again, but it was overkill with that band...

I think the point of the last Trey band was to be a BIG funk band. Horns are a crucial part of big band sound. Just because Trey is offering some versatility doesnt mean hes comepletly changed his focus. I'm interested in whatever hes up to, usually.

horns will always be cool. :)

Thing is, when Trey does trance it's not redundant... Horn driven funk is ok, in doses... If Trey turned EVERY new song into a delay loop song I'd be complaining about that as well... I'm saying mix it up a bit. I was really interested in what he was doing with the horns, for a couple of tours. Then it became redundant. One of the great things about Phish was how they kept you guessing. I know TAB isn't Phish (not even close) but it was fairly repetitive... They didn't really grow as a band, they just learned how to play the same material a little better together... I'm just excited to see some change. Hell, bring on some guest horns for a song or two. But do something new and fresh... Another tour of the TAB horns featuring Trey Anastasio on guitar doesn't really appeal to me... (And in my opinion, the best thing to happen to Trey post '99 was Phish Fall 2000 tour, followed by Oysterhead...)
