Aja, this song is pure genius. The turning point for Fagen and Becker making them music legends.
To the max? Thanks for the smile dude. Do you have the sleeves rolled up on your Members Only jacket?
Such a spine chilling record. I love it to the max!
TWO WORDS STEVE GADD !!
Enigmatic, bittersweet. and wonderfully complex.
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!
clevebaxley
Jeff J that is awesome!
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.

Pure genius.

It doesn't get much better than this.
Thank you Pandora, for "pandering" to my love of Steely Dan. You play alot of the old stuff in between the hits. "Aja," is probably not the best place to make this comment, because its is a hit, but the thought occured to me just now. Thanks for making my day a little nicer with this great music.
