Phish bassist Gordon offers a feast for the senses

Mike Gordon has long been known as the quiet, quirky engine of groove in Phish, authoring chunky bass lines and the occasional song but largely staying out of the spotlight, when on duty with the arena-cruising jam juggernaut from Vermont. But with his new solo album, he proves he’s just as comfortable taking center stage.

The record (“Overstep”) provides fresh fuel for Gordon’s touring quintet, which has emerged in its own right as one of the more exciting jam bands on the scene. (Gordon plays the House of Blues on Friday.)
