Default Re: Who has to play to a click or backing track live?

Steely Dan music is not "perfect" because of a click

it is silly to think so

they created a clinically sterile sounding environment by design

beyond the first record everything is very clean and slick ... on purpose ... from chords progressions to production ... soup to nuts ... they were making very clean records.

if you don't like the sound you probably just don't like Steely Dan ... which is cool

but it has nothing to do with a click

listen to what Rick Marotta says about the nuance they were capturing
