Classic Album Sundays is back with a listening party featuring Steely Dan's 1977 masterpiece Aja.
Released at a time when Disco, Punk, and Rap were starting to push progressive rock and Laurel Canyon pop off the music front pages, Walter Becker and Donald Fagen's masterpiece was a throwback of sorts, relying on almost 40 session musicians and rooted in a Jazz-based sophistication that stood up to the growing DIY cultural attitudes.
