Another 70’s “Fusion” Classic

June 3, 2010 at 3:25 pm Leave a comment

Strictly speaking, I’m not sure Steely Dan qualifies as a fusion group, but they certainly were jazz-influenced. On their records, they employed most of the top session players of the era, many of whom are well-known as jazz artists: Joe Sample, Wayne Shorter, Larry Carlton, Lee Ritenour, etc.

“Josie” is from their classic 1997 album, Aja.

My arrangement and recording is similar in concept to my other recent recordings of classic fusion tunes, covered in a prior post. It tracks the original version in many ways, as part of the idea here is to pay tribute to the originals. However, there are some minor changes in feel and structure.

This is again the quartet format where I played the guitar and bass parts and used edited loops and programming to generate the keyboard and drum parts.
