Donald Fagen

Donald Fagen was one of the two masterminds behind Steely Dan, the seminal jazz-pop band of the '70s. Fagen's solo work has been a continuation of the band's work of the early '80s -- carefully constructed and arranged, intricately detailed pop songs that are more substantial than their stylish surface may indicate. His 1982 solo debut, The Nightfly, was the best album he had made in years; it covered the same ground as the last two Steely Dan albums, yet surpassed them in terms of ambition and achievement.

After the success of The Nightfly, Fagen suffered a case of writer's block; for the rest of the decade he contributed music to the occasional film and briefly wrote a column for Premiere magazine in the mid-'80s. In the early '90s, he toured with the New York Rock and Soul Revue as he finished the material for his second album. With his former Steely Dan partner Walter Becker producing, 1993's Kamakiriad sounded like Aja recorded with '90s technology. It had some success on the adult contemporary charts, but it was overshadowed by the duo's decision to re-form Steely Dan and tour for the first time in nearly 20 years; the tour was a massive success. One more album -- 2003's Everything Must Go -- came out of the reunion before Fagen decided to begin work on his third solo album.

With death as its main theme, Morph the Cat appeared in March 2006. Soon after the album's release, Fagen embarked on his first solo tour. It was the beginning of an extended period of live performances for Fagen. Steely Dan toured several of their classic albums in 2009, by which time Fagen had become a regular at Levon Helm's Midnight Rambles in Woodstock, New York. In 2010, Fagen formed the touring blue-eyed soul revue the Dukes of September with Michael McDonald and Boz Scaggs. The group had a second tour in 2012, and after its conclusion, Fagen released the lively Sunken Condos, his first album since Morph the Cat. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

I 1st saw SD as an opening act for Chicago in the 70's. Had never heard of them until the concert and was ready to leave after their act. I know they had just killed any chance of me enjoying Chicago. Have seen them 3 times and hope to see them again in New Orleans in Huly.
Riding high, bareback on an Armadillo! Jeff Porcaro drumming on Katy Lied at 19 years old, Steve Gadd- Drumming performance of the year for AJA in 1977. Guitar solos- Becker- Kid Charlemagne, Skunk Baxter, Elliot Randall, Wayne Shorter- SAX on Aja, etc. Dr. Wu, The Fez, Reelin in the Years, Royal Scam-It goes on and on. Go see them while you have the chance. I will be in Balt in Sept for my 12th SD concert. To interpret their words Google the SD Dictionary. Awesome stuff! Sorry for rambling, I j
