On the heels of their new release Noon, bassist Mike Gordon and guitarist Leo Kottke delivered a remote performance for NPR’s Tiny Desk (Home) Concert series. For the session, they were joined by drummer Jon Fishman, who also contributed to the album.
The duo began the set with “Flat Top.” After the song, Gordon discussed his history working with Fishman. “Jon Fishman and I have been playing together for a long time. We did 2,000 gigs together and a lot of practices,” Gordon said. “We have a telepathy thing going. Plus, he practices like eight hours a day, all his limbs work differently, he’s my hero!”
Gordon then revealed that him and Kottke had been throwing around the idea of working with Fish for a while. “Leo and I have been talking about working with him for a long time, so we’re glad to introduce Jon Fishman,” he said, as the drummer virtually joined the session for “The Only One.”
Gordon and Kottke then performed “Sheets” as a duo, before Fishman returned for a closing performance of “I Am Random.”
