steely dan atlanta, ga may 11, 2007

just got back from seeing steely dan in atlanta tonight.

The show was at chastain park. it is an outdoor ampitheater, really quite a nice venue, but it has a terrible reputation because the summer concert series is sold in bulk, and most tix are bought up by companies or people that have no interest in the artists playing. folks bring wine cheese and dinner, and are more interested in having a nice little outdoor dinner party with some background music. this evenings show was no exception to that unfortunate trend, but not nearly as bad as most shows there.

the band:
Donald Fagen - Keyboards and Vocals
Walter Becker - Guitar
Keith Carlock - Drums
Jon Herington - Guitar
Carolyn Leonhart-Escoffery - Backing Vocals
Michael Leonhart - Trumpet
Cindy Mizelle - Backing Vocals
Jim Pugh - Trombone
Roger Rosenberg - Baritone Sax
Freddie Washington - Bass
Walt Weiskopf - Sax
Jeff Young - Keyboards and Backing Vocal

the show was really good, very funky, very jazzy, with a very tight 10 piece band. unfortunately we got some rain for about 45 minutes, but not a really hard rain, and not enough to spoil the show

i saw them back in 1994, and thought last nights show was better. i had hoped for some morph the cat material, but they did not play any. with their back catalogue, they have ahave a lot to chose from. i don't have a formal set list but they did:
bad sneakers
josie
dirty work
peg
kid charlemagne
do it again
hey nineteen
my old school
bodhisattva
and a lot more.

i highly recomend checking them out if they come your way

I saw them last year and they were outstanding. Michael McDonald opened for them, and he joined them for "Peg." Worth every penny. They also played Aja, and some other Fagen songs.

We caught the same show last summer (in different cities of course)...

Great show indeed. Well worth the time and money.
