Mike Gordon and Leo Kottke,
Mercury Lounge, New York, NY
Notes: The early show was a RCA Victor Group record label release party for Mike and Leo Kottke’s Clone CD. This previously unannounced show marked the debut public appearance of this duet, who performed a little short of an hour of selections from Clone. Tin Hat Trio and Sex Mob then performed short sets as part of the Rope-a-Dope New Music Seminar. The late show included over a dozen musicians in multiple configurations. Mike played bass for an improvisational set that also included Casey Benjamin, Warren Haynes, DJ Logic, Deantoni Parks, Sherik and Vernon Reid.
