Mike Gordon Debuts New Band, New Material
Last evening at the Iron Horse in Northampton, Mike Gordon performed with his current quintet. The band also includes Scott Murawski on guitar, drummer Todd Isler, percussionist Craig Myers and Tom Cleary. The group debuted much of the material from Gordon’s forthcoming release, The Green Sparrow (set to hit on August 5). In addition, the band offered up covers of the Beatles’ ‘She Said, She Said’ and J.J. Cale’s ‘Ain’t Love Funny.’ The evening concluded with a version of the Phish song ‘Meat’ that segued into The Green Sparrow’s ‘Dig Further Down.’ Next up for the group is a performance at the High Sierra Music Festival on Friday.
