Hall of Fame Essay

2001

Rhapsodically, and revealingly, Walter Becker, Steely Dan’s cofounder, recently described paradise: “It’s the club where all the jazz greats who are dead still play.

Ellington and Monk and Coltrane and Parker, and it’s the original music and the old arrangements and the original styles, and there are beautiful waitresses and cheap beer.” Virtual as Becker’s venue of choice may be, it houses the stuff that Steely Dan are made of.
