Try to score a copy of the Making of Aja DVD where the recording process is meticulously discussed and shown. Then you'll say "Wow".

Sana makakita ako.

Last month when I was killing time by going through the racks of the main HMV store here in Toronto, I was able to score a copy of their "latest" DVD after watching it on one of the many overhead flatscreens on the store walls.  It documents their recent tour which I was fortunate enough to have seen while I was visiting NYC last year.  I have the word "latest" in quotes because I don't think it is legit since wala siya sa DVD list ng SD website (just like "The Making of AJA" DVD; The title of this DVD is "Perfection in Performance", which doesn't sound like the usual SD irreverent titles.  Weird).  As usual the Katzenjammer  Kids were supported by one fine group of musicians:  Jon Harrington on lead/musical director, Freddie Washington on bass etc.  But what caught my eye was this young drummer (forgot his name) who nailed that Steve Gadd solo on Aja.  One of their "chu-chu-wahhhs", Carolyn Leonheart, is one hell of a vocalist (and a hottie as well).  Thank God I've got one of her CDs (Jazz staples and standards).  Michael MacDonald was a guest vocalist/keyboard player on that leg (I don't think he was there on the NYC leg) and his vocals fit hand-in-glove with SD's rock-jazz grooves.

If you have the chance to get a copy of this DVD, go get it.  Hindi kayo magsisisi, though I wish they had included other well know SD cuts (like Pretzel Logic).  Labo ni Harrington - I think he left this out of the tour set.

SD was also here early this year for two nights at Massey Hall.  What they did was interesting:  They played all the cuts on "Aja" during the first night and all the cuts on another album (as usual di ko maalala which one) on the second night.  Nice gimmick:  if you're a die-had SD fan you'd want to see both shows!  Too bad I was unavailable that weekend.

good stuff. it is great that they are still at it. yun nga lang the last live DVD they had, eh si Donald fagen had difficult hitting some of the high notes. yes to Carolyn Leonheart kaya lang medyo distracting yung "hottines niya" i think music grad siya and she also has an album of her own.

actually ung pag ka hirap ni donald fager to sing the high notes, for me, adds a different dimension to the songs :P

I was going through old posts and saw this. Went overseas and a lot has happened since hindi na natuloy ang jamming ... ot natuloy wla lang ako.

Sana matupad parin to. Steely Dan songs give that certain nostalgia of yesteryears, when i wasnt even born yet. Surreal.
