Ex-Vida Blue keyboardist Page McConnell sat in on keys for Spanish Moon > Skin It Back last night during Little Feat’s show at Higher Ground. McConnell shared Billy Payne’s keyboard setup for the two tunes. Page has plenty of experience playing Little Feat songs as Phish has performed Skin It Back, On Your Way Down (Allen Toussaint) and Time Loves a Hero over the years.

The Phish/Little Feat connection works both ways as Feat covered Sample In A Jar for 2000’s Chinese Work Songs and the track also was included on the Sharin’ in the Groove compilation that same year. Also, Mike Gordon guested on Feat’s latest album, Join the Band, for a rousing This Land Is Your Land. Little Feat continues their tour tonight at the Colonial Theater in Keene, NH and Saturday at Sugarloaf before they head off to Jamaica.
