  1. band take on the song “Aja” on his LP Chick, Donald, Walter & Woodrow (), and bassist Christian McBride’s ebullient rendition of the same song for his CD Sci-Fi (), as well as the long out-of-print LP Hoops McCann Plays the Music of Steely Dan (). Today, to paraphrase Bud Powell, the scene has changed: a generation of young.

  3. by Hoops McCann on 1/16/ pm The guy in the song is an idiot. He think's all he has to do is sell his house and he'll reach enlightenment. The lyrics seem banal because the character is banal. It's Steely Dan having a dig at rich airheads and their flip attitudes towards Buddhism. I love it.
  4. The second ding is "Green Earrings." Here Hoops and the band are playing a chart the was done for the Chick, Donald, Walter and Woodrow album. On this disk, the Woody Herman Big Band plays "Earring" and a number of other Dan tunes. By comparison, Hoop's take on the tune sounds like a demo of the final Woody Herman version/5(6).

  8. AAJ: There's a great story in the notes about the harp player (Corky Hale) playing on your session in between sets backing up Tony Bennett at the Waldorf Astoria hotel? LM: That's the story. I hope it's true. I know she missed the gig. The story was that Tony was on and he was doing his thing and he didn't realize she wasn't there and he introduced her anyway and then he sang the song by himself!
  9. Back last Spring, the or so Danfans here at the Dandom Digest, plus, fans at wighvolknamidisttipikerapemasu.coinfo-dan, the Sign In Stranger Guestbook, and the Danfan groups at Yahoo!
