Gordo To Release Sparrow August 5th

Rounder Records has  announced the release of Mike Gordon’s solo album, The Green Sparrow, set for an August 5th release. The Green Sparrow finds the  Phish bassist showcasing his wide range of influences. Recorded at Gordon’s home studio in Vermont and mixed at The Barn, his former band’s studio and art space, The Green Sparrow features special guests Chuck Leavell, Phish’s Trey Anastasio and Page McConnell, Bill Kreutzmann(Grateful Dead), Ivan Neville and horn players from Antibalas.
Since the break up of Phish in 2004, Gordon has participated in many projects, none of which have been purely solo. Gordon took 2007 off from touring and dedicated his time to writing this record. The end result is an eclectic album boasting Gordon’s skillful assimilation of free-form rock & roll, calypso, pop and funk.
Gordon will play select festivals this July and will embark on a nationwide club tour in August and September. Club tour dates to be announced shortly.
