MAESTROS OF COOL - A Tribute to Steely Dan
Not many albums have influenced the music scene as much as Steely Dan´s albums. Donald Fagen and Walter Becker have created a most unique flavour of Jazz meets Rock where beautiful melodies, genius production and perfect performance blend to produce timeless masterpieces. This is a tribute to their timeless classics.
A fabulous compilation of cover versions of songs from Steely Dan, MAESTROS OF COOL is far too good for the tribute album stamp. What we've got here is a compilation disc featuring an incredibly wide assemblage of musicians, most of whom, although likely unknown to listeners, have not only been influenced by Steely Dan, but have gone on to create spectacular and unique music that ventures far beyond that of their mentors. 24 tracks on 2 CDs with artists from the USA, Europe and Australia.
