Mike with Many (Including Page)
Mike Gordon has been making the late night rounds in New Orleans during Jazz Fest. Last night he joined Walter Wolfman Washington, Russell Batiste and Joe Krown at Tipitinas. On Friday, he performed with Marco Benevento and New Orleans native Johnny Vidacovich for little over an hour at the Maple Leaf. The prior evening saw him reunite with Page McConnell, joining a cluster of musicians onstage during the Russell Batiste & Friends gig at the Howlin’ Wolf. That show also offered reunion as McConnell, Batiste and Oteil Burbridge revisited their Vida Blue project with a version of Most Events Aren’t Planned. Next up for Page is a performance at the 7th Jammys on Wednesday night on an evening in which Phish will be honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award.
