Kottke / Gordon Fall Tour Announced

Acoustic guitar virtuoso Leo Kottke and erstwhile Phish bassist Mike Gordon have confirmed a 25-date fall tour of large clubs and theatres beginning September 15th at the Liberty Hall in Lawrence, KS, in support of their new album, Sixty Six Steps, which will be released August 23rd on RCA VICTOR.

Like Clone, the duo’s first album, Sixty Six Steps builds on the relationship of two musicians whose backgrounds and styles differ significantly, but together complement each other’s dynamic, and at times, offbeat songwriting.

Seasoned with the buoyant rhythms and freewheeling spirit of the tropics, Sixty Six Steps is not literally a calypso album but one that uses the calypso feel as a touchstone. Rehearsed in Costa Rica, Kottke and Gordon recorded the album at Compass Point Studios in Nassau, Bahamas, with Clone producer David Z (Prince, Johnny Lang) and were joined by Neil Symonette (Al Green), the renowned house drummer at Compass Point.
