Let's bring the music thread back over. Last night I saw The Flatlanders at Carnegie Hall. If you've never heard Jimmie Dale Gilmore's reedy tenor or Joe Ely's muscular guitar, you are missing something. They are the godfathers of alt.country.

I love the old Posthorn Serenade. Two beautiful movements for flute and oboe, the flute part performed here by James Galway... Smile

Back to listening to Aja, by Steely Dan. LORD how I love that album. The bass track on "Peg" and the drumming by Steve Gadd on "Aja" are simply sublime.

Hi Shawn,

Have you seen the documentary about the making of "Aja"? It's quite good:





One of the more interesting sections is when they discuss recording the bass and solo-guitar tracks for "Peg" (including previewing bits of discarded guitar solos).

I have seen a part of it and look forward to seeing the entire show one day. I believe snippets of it are on YouTube, no? I will seek it out and watch it one day in the near future. Thanks.

You're welcome.

That's it, buddy. My favourite on those discs is the Posthorn Serenade. It has seven movements, and some gorgeous scoring for wind in the 3rd and 4th movements, and a hugely expressive slow set straight after them. He took some movements away from this later so it could be performed as a symphony, too, but it works better in all it's glory...

I can not thank you enough for putting that piece on the making of "AJA" on this site. I THOROUGHLY enjoyed listening and watching that YouTube piece on Steely Dan. What a great album and group of musicians. Thanks again.

You're welcome! I'm glad you enjoyed it.

It is a great album. I listened to the whole thing yesterday, and now can't stop thinking about the title track. Such a great song.

Well, with the passing of The Possum, I have been cranking up all my ol' George Jones tunes. I started off with one of his very best--The Race Is On.

To those of you who posted about Steely Dan, I recommend checking out their two albums from the 00s (especially Two Against Nature) if you haven't done so already. It's unfortunate that nostalgia causes them to get overlooked. It's also unfortunate that they exist in the minds of many as the band behind their early hits like Do It Again, Reelin in the Years, and Dirty Work, which are all OK songs but (IMO) don't hold a candle to the songs on later albums like Royal Scam, Aja, and Gaucho.

I have Two Against Nature and very much liked it, although it is almost too pristine a sound at times. "How About a Kiss for your Cousin Dupree" was kind of along the lines of "Everyone's Gone to the Movies" from The Royal Scam--risque/taboo with a wink. Blush I also love and listen often to Gaucho.

I believe "Movies" is actually on a different album, but there's a really great "risque/taboo with a wink" (love the description, very perfect) song on Royal Scam called "Everything You Did." One of my favorite Dan songs. Maybe you were thinking of that one. I could go on and on about SD but I'll stop here... Angel
