About The Music : July 2019

About The Music : July 2019 for sale at Basically Sound


Our next About The Music event is to be held on Thursday 4th July and will feature another classic artist whose music has spanned the last five decades.

Steely Dan were formed in 1972 by college friends Donald Fagen and Walter Becker and soon became renowned for their mix of rock, jazz and R&B influences coupled with sophisticated studio production and "clever" lyrical content. And we won't mention where they got the band's name from!!!

Steely Dan have released nine studio albums over the years and the band are still active but now with only Donald Fagen remaining following Walter Becker's death in 2017.

Our focus for the evening will be their 1977 release Aja which will be played in its entirety. Offering a collection of textured, immaculately produced, sophisticated jazz-rock tracks, the album credits the likes of Michael MacDonald (Doobie Brothers), Joe Sample (Jazz Crusaders), Wayne Shorter (Weather Report) & Timothy B. Schmit (The Eagles) amongst the 40 or so session musicians who appear alongside Fagen and Becker to create this Grammy Award winning album.

The evening will also feature a selection of tracks from Steely Dan's back catalogue and possibly some solo releases as well.
