Two of our favorite bassists joined forces last night at the Belly Up in Aspen, where Vic Wooten of The Flecktones sat in with the Mike Gordon Band for the Phish original Meat, a cover of Sailin’ Shoes by Little Feat and the Tom Cleary-written Crumblin’ Bones. Wooten has a long history with Gordon, having first guested with Phish for most of the second set in Salt Lake City, Utah on August 21, 1993 and then again on July 9, 1997 in Lyon, France.
Mike has also sat in with the Flecktones and appeared as a guest instructor at Wooten’s Bass Camp. The Mike Gordon Band also debuted the Moss track Flashback at last night’s show. Next up for Gordon and his band is a performance the Ogden Theatre in Denver tonight.
