Leo Kottke & Mike Gordon
Noon CD (Autographed)
Purchase includes CD booklet signed by Leo Kottke and Mike Gordon
New studio album from acoustic guitar pioneer Leo Kottke and Phish bassist Mike Gordon and their first new album together in 15 years.
Intricate, warmly askew, and indelibly dexterous, Noon showcases 11 new tracks. The album – which marks Kottke’s first studio record since his previous collaboration with Gordon, 2005’s 66 Steps – was recorded in New Orleans and Vermont, with music exchanged between the two artists by file, tape-sealed boombox, sheet music, and face-to-face. Working with longtime Gordon collaborator, producer/engineer Jared Slomoff, Kottke and Gordon have crafted a singular collection of improvisational mood music, including a stripped-back version of Gordon’s classic “Peel” and Kottke’s stark rethinking of the Byrds’ “Eight Miles High.” Noon further includes a bopping cover of Prince’s “Alphabet St.” featuring Phish drummer Jon Fishman, who also joins Kottke and Gordon on four additional tracks. In addition, the LP includes nearly ambient appearances by pedal steel player Brett Lanier (The Barr Brothers) and cellist Zoë Keating (Imogen Heap, Amanda Palmer, Tears For Fears).
