Vida Blue, led by Phish keyboardist Page McConnell, is very much the keyboard dude's solo album. McConnell, who only contributed two entirely original compositions to Phish's catalog over their 17-year career, is still a new songwriter and bandleader – an odd move to make nearly 20 years into his career as a professional musician. In many ways, Vida Blue is more surprising than either of guitarist Trey Anastasio's post-Phish works, if only because – as Phish's de facto bandleader – Anastasio's aesthetic has long been obvious.
