Born on this day ...
Stephen Kendall ‘Steve’ Gadd was born on this day in 1945, in Irondequoit, New York. He had an early introduction to drumming by an uncle and took to it like the proverbial duck to water. Known primarily as a jazz drummer and very well respected, his list of credits and session work across many different genres is ridiculous – it’s probably easier to pick out who he hasn’t play with. Just a very few names whose performances and recordings he's graced include Paul Simon (and Simon and Garfunkel, Concert in Central Park), James Taylor, George Benson, Kate Bush, Chick Corea, The Manhattan Transfer, Jim Croce, Tony Banks, Weather Report, Al di Meola, Paul McCartney, BB King, Eric Clapton, his own bands, of course, and not least Steely Dan.

Any opportunity to trot out the masterpiece that is “Aja” …

Fantastic mixing on this album - you can hear everything clearly. For some or other reason I only have a handful of SD albums. Must get this one as well. Thx for the tip Ruby.
