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

What more can be said; witnessed the Dan live in concert; absolutely the best! I am completely addicted to the writing, songs and sounds that Mr. Fagen and Mr. Becker have provided over the years. Thank you, Gentleman... . . . Wesley - Austin, TX.

Remembered going to sleep to Deacon Blues while I was a freshmen in high school; bought AJA the next day. This was my first album that I bought for myself. I thought I was the only one who wants SD songs played at my funeral. I wonder, what's the obsession?
Oh how I almost forgot about DONALD FAGEN I love this dude,s music. His sound is one of a kind, when you hear it you know its him, glad to see he's still doing his thing would love to hear more of him
Just love this olskl band my fave!

Still play their vinyl including Sunken Condos fan for life 67 yrs in a couple of days Dac from Australia also have seen them live....memo r a b l e
i've always been a big fan
A sound and style like no other. Fagen's artistry is like that comfy chair that you just can't wait to sit in!
Played Sunken Condos for a much younger friend who owns Gig Harbor Audio in Gig Harbor, Wa. and before the first track ended he purchased 3 copies for his store followed by Night Fly. This music crosses generations. The man with that VOICE !!

Fagen & Steely---gre a t group of the past. At 63 I still remember their debut as though it was only yesterday (wish it was!) Still great after all these years.
Steely Dan fan 4 life. 41 years old. Remember the music from being a child of the 70's. The musical rhythm changes go well with my ADHD. Donald Fagen is a masterfully gifted songwriter.
music for a unheard generation!

This song really puts me in a happy mood!
Been a Steely Dan fan since 1979. I'm a Black male. I know that doesn't matter, I'm a music lover! I'm 48 years young. I wish my African Americans brothers & sisters would expand their horizons. Beautiful music, the instrumental s , the lyrics , the melodic tempo. I'm a Trombone player great music. Reeling in the years .
So very mellow,just viben'...so sweet.Steely 4eva.
green flower street? a nod to green dolphin street?
Kamakiriad is like Aja recorded on 90s technology!? You can't be serious! I really wonder if the bone heads that write this stuff are really true fans or if they just regurgitate crap from the internet. But whatever, Fagen is a master writer and engineer, some of the best music ever!
