9780826427830: AJA

Aja was the album that made Steely Dan a commercial force on the order of contemporaries like Fleetwood Mac, the Eagles and Chicago. A double-platinum, Grammy-winning bestseller, it lingered on the Billboard charts for more than a year and spawned three hit singles. Odd, then, that its creators saw it as an "ambitious, extended" work, the apotheosis of their anti-rock, anti-band, anti-glamour aesthetic. Populated by thirty-fi ve mostly jazz session players, Aja served up prewar song forms, mixed meters and extended solos to a generation whose idea of pop daring was Paul letting Linda sing lead once in a while. And, impossibly, it sold. Including an in-depth interview with Donald Fagen, this book paints a detailed picture of the making of a masterpiece.

Review:

"Musician and songwriter Breithaupt's book pores over every last note of Josie, Deacon Blues, Peg and the like with the enthusiasm of a teenybopper and the insight of an academic"

(Terry Staunton, Record Collector)

"Aja was the album that made Steely Dan a commercialforce on the order of contemporaries like Fleetwood Mac, the Eagles, and Chicago. Adouble-platinum, Grammy-winning bestseller, it lingered on the Billboardcharts for more than a year after its 1977 release and spawned three hitsingles. Odd, then, that its creators saw it as an `ambitious, extended` work,the apotheosis of their anti-rock, anti-band, anti-glamour aesthetic.

Including an in-depth interview with Dan co-founder Donald Fagen, this book- part of Continuum`s ongoing 33 1/3 series - by Canadian musician and musicjournalist Don Breithaupt paints a detailed picture of the making of amasterpiece." —Upper North Side

"Don Breithaupt has crafted an informative book about SteelyDan's platinum sixth album, Aja—part of Continuum Press' 33 1/3 series onacclaimed albums in rock history. Theauthor analyzes Walter Becker and Donald Fagen's cryptic word play and artyrock and West Coast studio contributions to the 1977 release and tried to builda case in support of his fervid-fan claim that Aja is 'the best record in thesolar system.'"—Downbeat Magazine

"Aja is the first one [in the series] I've read, but I'll be checking out the others. Highly recommended."Stereophile, December 2009
