I don't normally link to other articles here at Guitar Omnivore. It feels a bit lazy to just provide a link with a sentence that says "Hey.here's a cool link!" and call that a blog. This week,however,I came across two great articles about Steely Dan. One is about Jon Herington,the current Steely Dan guitar man who has the unenviable job of playing solos in songs originally played by the likes of Denny Dias,Jeff Baxter,Elliot Randall,Larry Carlton and Steve Khan, among others. The other is from the great Jazz Wax blog and tells the tale of how Wayne Shorter came to play on the Aja album. As a Steely Dan fanatic,I couldn't resist sharing,so here's my lazy Saturday article. Enjoy!
