Formed around the core duo of Donald Fagen and Walker Becker, Steely Dan originated as a rock band playing live shows, but gradually incorporated more and more jazz elements into their work, eventually retreating from touring and focusing on studio perfection to produce the highest quality records they could.
Steely Dan were summed up by SPIN as “deliberately intellectualist pop music that appealed easily to music-school types and jazz fans–chops-y rock music that helped “legitimize” the genre… Becker and Fagen’s songs, charted out across six or seven sheets normally, prized and necessitated technical musicianship. They used horns as expressive, exalted instruments in rock songs, not just padding or blunt, skronking deus ex machinas.”
With the album “Aja,” selling over a million copies, Steely Dan’s almost obsessive musicality and production served them well, and their iconic studio sound has gone on to influence many other artists up to and including the present day. Get ready to experience it all live for yourself – book your tickets to see Steely Dan today!
