Steely Dan

Tonight’s show is by special request of Big Dan. This band is also one of my favorites.

Donald Fagen and Walter Becker met in college in 1967 and began playing in local bands. Later moving to Brooklyn they released their first album in 1972. They toured briefly but soon retired to working only in the studio accompanied by a host of studio musicians. With six album releases in the ‘70s they broke up in the ‘80s but reformed in the ‘90s and began touring again.

Their blend of jazz, rock and pop sound equally well today as when they first hit the airwaves.

I’ll open tonight with a look had how they mold their music in the studio with a breakdown of their hit song Peg. Finally, I’ve left you a little piece of eye candy for your enjoyment at the end.

Enough from me, I’ll let these ladies tell you what it’s all about:
