Ray Baril YSJO “Steely Dan Reimagined”

(Edmonton - Part of CoJazz 2021)

The Yardbird Suite Jazz Orchestra plays music of Steely Dan.

  • November 13, 2021
    8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Many composers and bands helped shape the sound of contemporary popular music but few rose to the stature of Steely Dan and the writing team of Donald Fagan and Walter Becker. Their sound was unmistakable and their impact was undeniable. Their music helped define the jazz rock idiom with rhythmic grooves rooted in rock, blues and Latin American music traditions, harmonies and improvisation borrowed from world of jazz and coupled with sophisticated lyrics. The big band is ideally suited to capture the music of the “Dan” and present it in a fresh and compelling setting. Join the Yardbird Suite Jazz Orchestra under the direction of Raymond Baril as they Reimagine Steely Dan.
