In Honor of Mr. Walter Becker ..

Steely Dan died today .. well, half of it anyways. Walter Becker was a fine arranger and an excellent bass player and a gifted guitarist.

When I went to put together my first solo album in 1994, I wrote a very specific song trying to express what Steely Dan was attempting to achieve. To let people know what a deep impact their incisive jazz had on me. Unfortunately, I played all the instruments .. every one of them .. on the song and left the complex vocal arranging to a producer. Steely Dan was smart enough to bring in armies of virtuoso studio musicians to make their tracks slide and pop and groove.

But, this song .. "Old Man" .. was my ode to Walter Becker and his friend Donald Fagen .. and what they brought to popular music.

The words mean a bit more today ..

" ... as the crystal blue succumbs to prescient pink .. and the sample of black becomes destiny's link .. the years build and push upon your chest .."
