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

Steely Dan I have all their cds, one of my many favorite groups!
aftermidnigh t m o o
I feel ya rpalmermo169 From Childhood memories of Reelin years,spirit u a l events like my first listen to aja in my stillwater Oklahoma Dorm room To Many Concert events Including SD's first live performance (20+years in the making)at the Woodlands-Hu s t o n TX. featuring Skunk Baxter&Corne l i u s Bumpis To as of late- a stellar Oklahoma City performance this summer !! God must certainly smile upon the enigma with is Steely Dan!! As for the noise they create?It has been MOST JOYFUL!!!!!!
SD's music came into my world in college in Oklahoma 1973. Since then it evokes calm and self reassurance year after year, so timeless is their music. With each artists' solo album came the idea of a different flavor of ice cream. Still cool, still smooth, still evoking that same inner peace and calm. I shall listen to SD til I lay down for the last time; Time out of Mind..
What a beautiful world
Saw SD in concert in Bangor Maine this summer - awesome. Even live, they are every bit the perfectionis t s .
Sir Thank you very much for the tunes and your fantastic abilities as a musician and especially as an artist you have truly helped me get through situations that only your music could could help,,Thank you

You've been around a long time Donald Fagan.....yo u ' v e earned your Morph!!! You are music to MY ears!
awesome musical arrangement
Not trying to take up all the comment space- But A-I love The Nightfly-but fail to see,as the Pandora«expe r t s » s a y - I certainly don't think that it surpassed Aja,or Gaucho in anything-and B-I've listened to Morph the Cat a lot,and don't see how,again these«expert s » Can say that Death is its main theme-The brilliance of Fagen - Becker lyrics are that they are open to individual interpretati o n - a n d while Morph might not be light and airy like The Nightfly-I don't see Death as the discs theme,at all
Nice....sure looks good.....Ska t e a lil lower now
Donald Fagen and Steely Dan are a calm friend that reassure and soothe my wound up tension from this nasty world. Many thanks and I tip my hat and a cold brew to a great group and fine artists.
Experience is everything. Put this on the way to the beach.
Becker+Fagen = 2x Genius - end result Studio,no Musical Perfection-S T E E L Y DAN - & 4 those just jumping on the bandwagon - stay on,cause it doesn't get much better

Any major dude will tell you...
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
