this was the first dan album I bought - after hearing Royal Scam I was disappointed at first but this is a clean new direction for Fagan, masterful composer, and yes the drum tracks r killer

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in two days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary. Put this on five songs in 143 min. When done press f6 and your lovers name will come on the screen in big letters

Whats not to love about this epic journey that is AJA!!! The voicings of the piano and the mulitple layered guitars.The exotic lyrics and stunning arrangement. The brillant sax solo by the great Wayne Shorter. And last but not least the astounding drumming display and clinic by Steve Gadd!!!!

Aja, this song is pure genius. The turning point for Fagen and Becker making them music legends.

Jeff J said it all. This song was released 35 years ago and I just rocked in my seat and exclaimed, Steve Gadd and Wayne Shorter -- OMG!

The greatest recorded drum performance ever.

SD music is Sooooooooo made for lazy summer afternoons with a cold beer...

I named my firstborne Aja due to the transcendent spirituality of the Shorter-Gadd interplay and the SD lyrics which take you away to another place. That was 28 years ago.
