Dang. Dennis Chambers. Good call, J Man. Also, check out Chambers on Maceo Parker's Shake Everything You Got from Maceo's Roots & Grooves album. There's an immense drum break-down on that track.
And Fagen and Becker were fussy about their drummers. I saw a documentary about the making of Aja which spent a lot of time on the recording of the song Peg. I seem to remember Jim Keltner going through what he played on the track and then him recalling that he went to the studio the next day to find an entirely different set of musicians working on the same tune, this time with Bernard Purdie on the drums.Although certainly not an album designed to feature the drums, Aja by Steely Dan has tasty drumming throughout by a number of world class players.
They're a great band! 60s 70s type guitar and grooves, good stuff. I get so tired of the same ole pop music.Rival Sons album Pressure and Time. I’ve been listening to this band a lot lately. The drummer is Michael Miley. He plays a 4 piece kit, and he’s what a lot of people may consider busy, but in my opinion he’s perfect for the band and music. Big old school drum sounds.
