Jazz from Gallery 41....Steely Dan SMOKIN' in San Francisco

Steely Dan is in SF for the weekend (through Sunday the 25th)...last night's show was SMOKIN'...the band is great as always...Jim Pugh, Roger Rosenberg, Walt Weiskopf, and Michael Leonhart in the horn section...drummer Keith Carlock, guitarist Jon Herrington, Freddie Washington on bass, Jim Beard on keyboards...the singers...Walter Becker, Donald Fagen...(hope I didn't leave anyone out) everyone is on top of their game.

Organist Sam Yahel opened show with his trio, that was a terrific surprise, they played an incredible set as well. If you're in the area and want a great night of music...or if your city is on their tour schedule, treat yourself.

Am on way to interview members of Steely Dan this afternoon, should be great fun. Stay tuned....
