Mike Gordon; interview on

Mike Gordon discusses his upcoming tour and keeping it fresh while jamming in an interview on

You climb inside one part of the song, the bridge, and you bask in it. To be able to do that, in terms of improvising in a jam and going onto the next thing, you’re saying let’s take this little bridge and let it be stretched out and improvised. We can bask in it and enjoy it. Sometimes it’s the subtlest tweaks like that. It’s not major open-heart surgery, it’s little tweaks. But it’s important to me. If it all sounds the same, an entire repertoire starts to sound old even if it’s not old.

He will be playing with Scott Murawski (guitar), Craig Myers (percussion), Robert Walter (keyboards) and John Kimock (drums). The tour kicks off in St, Louis on November 18th and ends with three-night stand at The Sinclair in Cambridge (December 9-11).
