Be sure to tune into The Grapevine to hear a very special broadcast featuring the incredible sounds of the one, the only...Steely Dan. Here's one of my favorite quotes from record reviewers on their music:
"The cerebral energy, the precise rhythms, the melodies which rise like the sun on your day off, all combine to give the music of Steely Dan an unmistakable reality, which hangs like an aura around your stereo speakers."
And here's another:
"Almost every character in each of these songs is engaged in furtive behavior...by balancing verbal puzzles and moments of unequivocal clarity, Steely Dan has learned how to keep the vampires from the door."
But the real deal, folks, is that Steely Dan has always had one of the coolest sounds by combining excellent horn arrangements, killer keyboard work, incredibly strong melodies, unique lyrics and a vast sea of mental images set to some beautiful, and often very weird music!
The live broadcast will be Thursday, March 18th from 7 to 8 pm, and replayed direct off of the KDRT antenna on March 22nd from 3 to 4 pm. And of course, you can catch this special show all over the world at: www.kdrt.org.
