The latest Ghosts Of The Forest video posted by Trey Anastasio of Phish contains a performance of “Beneath A Sea Of Stars Parts 1 & 2.” The 15-minute sequence was filmed at the United Palace Theatre in New York City on April 13.

“Beneath A Sea Of Stars” ends Anastasio’s Ghosts Of The Forest studio album and spans over 23 minutes on the LP. Trey broke up the compositions into three parts in concert and performed the first two in the middle of the set and the third segment as the finale of the main set. “Beneath A Sea Of Stars Parts 1 & 2” is the 11th video shared by the guitarist from his Ghosts Of The Forest tour and he continues to unveil them in the order they were performed. Anastasio was backed by drummer Jon Fishman, bassist Tony Markellis, keyboardist Ray Paczkowski and vocalists Jennifer Hartswick and Celisse for the nine-show tour.

Abigail Holmes, the tour’s lighting designer, made fine use of the forest-like backdrop throughout “Beneath A Sea Of Stars Parts 1 & 2.” Celisse and Jennifer vacated the stage five minutes into the song, leaving Trey, Ray, Tony and Fish to dive into the most improv-heavy section of the night. The interplay between the four was especially impressive on April 13, the final night of the Northeast portion of the tour. A beautiful “Reba”-esque jam featuring pre-recorded sounds from the forest interspersed was followed by a dark and ambient noise collage that led into “Beneath A Sea Of Stars Part 2” as Hartswick and Celisse returned. Trey put a final stamp on the tune by leading the song’s third open-ended section to bring “Part 2” to a close.
