Album Review: Vida Blue - Crossing Lines

Hey all, got a new review up @glidemag which you can read Right C'here!!!

It is of Vida Blue's newest release, Crossing Lines.

When Phish first went on hiatus, the four individuals all tried solo stuff. Vida Blue was by far the most interesting as Page McConnell stepped to the forefront and invited the amazing rhythm pair of Oteil Burbridge and Russell Batiste to join him.  The original album was cool, the follow up was better with the Spam All-Stars on board for a jammed out DJ spiced Latin flavored jazz/funky excursion.

Crossing Lines is a solid return for the side project, with the instrumentals sounding loose and free. If there is a downside, it is that Page's vocals and lyrics are average at best, but the overall sound, especially the drumming from Batiste is worth a listen.

Support the band, buy the album, read the review and peep some video below:


  1. Weepa is amazing they should have made the whole album a dub concept album. Be careful not to listen to any other song on there

    1. I went back and listened to their second album with SPAM All-Stars, that is what they seem to do best. Dub concept album would be interesting.
