Mike Gordon Releases Live CD
Phish bassist Mike Gordon has released a new live CD. Recorded on March 22, 2014 at The Rio in Vancouver, British Columbia, the CD features Scott Murawski on guitar, Tom Cleary on keyboards, Craig Myers on percussion, and Todd Isler on the drums in support of Gordon. The show has been remastered and is available at livephish.com.
The Rio show includes tracks “Long Black Line,” “Face,” “Paint,” and “Jumping,” off Gordon’s studio album, Overstep, which released on February 25, 2014. Also on the Vancouver release is “Peel,” during which front-row fans joined in the music-making process by hitting the keys on a light-up keyboard that spanned the length of the stage. According to Gordon, “all the new cannons were firing,” and “’Peel’ kept traveling into crevices of our dreamworlds.”
Gordon will be taking his talents to South Beach. Phish rings in 2015 at AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami, December 31-January 3.
