Welcome to June! Just to change things up, I will be inviting my followers to share their favorite artists with all of us for a time. Each person will choose four or five artists (depending on the number of Mondays in the month) for the month.
The Professor, who blogs in the Punchy Land , is sharing for the month of June. He was volunteered by yours truly because he has introduced me to a goodly number of artists and music that were unfamiliar to me. He graciously agreed to spread the joy.
His first pick for your listening pleasure is Deacon Blues by Steely Dan, and he described it as a jazz/rock kind of thing. I found it pleasant and mellow – and maybe good for a slow dance.
The official bio describes it like this: “The band’s sound intermixes jazz, rock, funk, R&B, and pop and contains jazz-based complex structures and harmonies and obscure lyrics.” That makes it interesting, doesn’t it?
More about Deacon Blues at this link. Interesting short history.
Anyone besides The Professor who likes Steely Dan and/or this song? Any thoughts about the music?
