carolyn leonhart and cynthia calhoun (who's voices
blend nicely) are all over the TWO AGAINST NATURE
album.   i thought her association with the dan went
back even furthur than that, though.

i thought she was on the KAMAKIRIAD album. (fagen's solo album from '93), but it was katherine
russell
that i was thinking of. she's gotten some press lately, too.

i know that leonhart has toured with them. she was
part of the "citizen steely dan" tour back in '94.

just for fun, i went back and listened to "black cow"
from AJA.  (talk about good backing vocals...)
talk about a good sax solo, talk about a great horn
arrangement, talk about...

Has anyone heard who is going to be the drummer for the upcoming SD tour?  That is if they dont take Keith (which they should!)

Hmm, If I could wish for alternate to Keith for the tour..

1.)   Dave Weckl (But, I dont think Fagen and Becker could  deal with his Chops)
2.)   Vinnie Colaiuta ( I think he is more suited for this gig because he can play anything and make it groove and sound awesome..  And Vinnie has the chops when he needs them!  But Vinnie is on Faith Hills tour so not likely!)
3.)   Steve Gadd  (Havent heard much of him lately.  Probably the most likely choice if they dont take Keith)
4.)   Peter Erskine (I dig Peters drumming what can you say, clean and tastie!  Wow)
5.)   Bernard Purdie(Tell me why not! He walks on water..)

it's gonna be (drum roll please....) keith carlock. (for
both legs of the tour) i think most long-time fans are happy with that. (though i don't speak for everybody,
obviously).

they'll let him stretch it out a little bit , live. (that's one
of the things that makes their live shows so good.on
records, the guys are restrained, with every lick it
seems having been dictated,  but live, they'll loosen
the reigns and give 'em some room.

in the abscence of carlock, hmmm...interesting to
speculate on who might have ended up back there...

 on piano(which will be "out front") they'll have
ted baker, who's featured on the new album. (love
those piano licks on "the last mall", the 1st cut).

A-players, man.  ought to be good.

hey, joek, i went to the c.leonhart site, but i think
her links are down. (were you able to get any song
samples in mp3 format?) i don't want to re-install
realaudio.

I went to buy tickets for Steely Dan tommorow at Konochti Harbor, but they want $130 for extreme angle seats. Whoa! I guess there's more Steely Dan "citizens" than I imagined. The show is more or less sold out.

Crap.  It's cheaper to buy the disc and hear the sounds as they intended!

I guess they're having Dean and DeLuca cater the band and the audience at those rates! :D  No doubt the hip lawyers and doctors will be largely in attendance.

I think they got the high ticket price idea from the Eagles..  Sucks!  this ticket gouging crap really pisses me off!  If they are selling out you can't tell me they deserve it!  I love the dan but I expect to be very close to the front for that money! >:(

ClearChannel, or one of it's minions, is probably involved.

gentlemen, please stop with this talk of money. the
buddha teaches us that virtue, wisdom, and self-
lessness are the authentic ideals worth seeking. but, your mind must be ready to receive his
teachings. sshhh. speak quietly in order to be heard
over the din...

you're upsetting my peace of mind with talk of these
wordly concerns.

although, at the same time,  have you priced
(designer) jeans and (authentic)  pearls lately? (not
to mention all that snazzy gear at fagens' river sound
studios, and beckers' hyperbolic sound).

At the risk of being whooshed, may I ask what this means?  Is it a reference to the juxtaposition of the current religious beliefs of Messrs. Becker and Fagen and their taste for prestigious things, i.e. high-priced session musicians, Neumann microphones, etc.?

Please be gentle; I've only been a fan for three years, tops.

Obviously a whole bunch of people are willing to pay those prices.  I won't.  I like Steely Dan a lot, but I wouldn't pay $130 to see them.  I wouldn't pay $130 to see anyone, except a Beatles or Zeppelin reunion, and I mean a full member reunion!

Forget US$130 for extreme angle -- what has yet to be mentioned is the price for front-view seats or the Miss Leonhart-view seats.   :o

Exactly.  There are too many people paying those prices and complaining.  Quit paying and they will come down.  It is a matter of supply and demand.  I would pay that much to see the Beatles too!

well, at 130.00 bucks, chances are you won't have
to put up with a 20-year-old kid sitting right behind
you screaming tripe into a @$%# cell phone...

that IS steep for a concert ticket, but everyone there
who pays that price
will WANT to be there, and the music will be the main
draw. (it won't be "just another party concert" that
people have on their list for this summer).

if the tickets were cheap, and the kids flooded in, the
concert wouldn't be the same.

they're trying to preserve a certain aesthetic.
