one of the greatest jazz/rock recordings ever taped in the California Hemisphere!

thanks & Superbest!!

Todd LaPalm

That's my dad, Dick LaPalm. I'm really proud of him. He's a wealth of knowledge. If you want to talk about the music business with him, especially jazz, buckle up because you'll be glued to him and his incredible stories he has to tell. But most of all, he's great dad and a terrific human being. I love you Pops.

Larry Barden

I'm going to be laughing about the Lenise Bent story for a long time. Thanks, guys!

This is an amazing story. Thanks so much for posting. The "well the" anecdote is too funny. Don and Walt. Gotta love 'em.

valerie bishop

there's a lot to titter about in this wonderful story but i must admit that Wayne's jacket probably provided the biggest chuckle!!

Aja has alwayss been a favorite and i'm a died-in-the-wool jazz fan. sure glad Wayne joined this classic cut.

Denise

Great story!! I love the Aja album. Yes, album although I have it on cd as well. :-)

Chris Dinant

Well, the 'Well the' sound is a very important part of the song. I can imagine well, that it took them so long to perfect.

Thanks for posting! Great to know how it went down. Let's be grateful for the beautiful music they made together.

Brought back many happy memories of ABC Records, my dad Jay, Howard, Steve and a lot more. My office was under the studio at ABC Records on Bev Blvd. Steely Dan rehearsed in the studio over my office.
