"The Green Sparrow" is the second solo album from Phish bassist Mike Gordon, released August 5, 2008. It is his first solo album in five years (since 2003's "Inside In"). Gordon has also released a pair of studio albums with acoustic guitarist Leo Kottke, a live album with the experimental Benevento-Russo Duo, and a live DVD with Grateful Dead offshoot Rhythm Devils.

Gordon dedicated all of 2007 to writing "The Green Sparrow" while taking a year long hiatus from touring. It was recorded at the end of 2007 and into 2008 in his home recording studio in Vermont and features guest appearances from Bill Kreutzmann, Trey Anastasio, Chuck Leavell, Page McConnell, Ivan Neville and others. A tour to support the album began in July 2008 with Gordon backed by Max Creek guitarist Scott Murawski, keyboardist Tom Cleary, drummer Todd Isler, and percussionist Craig Myers. Only Murawski remains from Gordon's original 2003 touring band.
