Who's or what's Steely Dan, you ask? Well, it's a '70's 'jazz rock' band. Steve's old time friend MIKE KARNES and BARTLETT both enjoy their sound. They've done several of Steely Dan's tunes together. Core members of the band... Steely Dan, are DONALD FAGEN and HERE and WALTER BECKER and HERE. These two were known to be 'perfectionists in the recording studio,.. calling in several musical artists for each recording. This quote from WIKIPEDIA..
"Over the year they took to record Gaucho (1980), an album of just seven songs, Becker and Fagen hired at least 42 studio musicians and 11 engineers.".
Steely Dan won a GRAMMY for Album of the year, has been inducted into the ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME in 2001, and they have sold over 40 million albums worldwide.
The band disbanded in 1981, but contines to have a large cult-like following over the years. Weve been fans over the years for sure. Jan
Here's an example of Steely Dan's style and technique, recomended by Steve's guitar friend Mike Karnes. The video's called 'The Making of Aja', [thanks Russ Harris] This is what it says on the video page: " Uploaded on Aug 10, 2008
