Classic Albums: Steely Dan - Aja based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
If you like Steely Dan and are interested in the creative process that they employed this DVD is a must. The opportunity to observe Becker & Fagan at the mixing counsole analyzing their songs track by track is priceless. I've been a 'Dan Fan' for decades and this is the first chance I've ever had to become aquainted with the artists behind the music.
The Aja video is totally awsome. The first half of the tape features Becker and Fagan at a large mixing console with the original Aja multitrack tape at their finger tips! They solo the bass part or the drum part, talk about how it came about and interview the studio musician who layed it down. They even show you some of the gutar solos that were rejected! At the end of the tape, they assembled some of the musicians and play a few songs off the album. I really think that the Aja album was some of the best music to come out of the '70's.
