Nominated for Album of the Year and Best Pop Performance at the 1978 Grammys, Aja ultimately brought home the trophy for Best Engineered Recording – Non-Classical—a triumph shared by engineers Roger Nichols, Bill Schnee and two members of the METAlliance, Al Schmitt and Elliot Scheiner. “I think one of the best things about rock and roll as opposed to jazz is precision and a professional sound,” Fagen said in ‘77.

Fast forward to mid 1990’s. Roger Nichools is now living in Nashville, and I (Glenn Meadows) have been working with him mastering projects for him. Aja (pronounced Asia) is the sixth studio album by Steely Dan. And it’s not like Lennon and McCartney, who as I understand it usually just wrote a song by themselves and then put both their names on it. But their songwriting impressed Kenny Vance of Jay and the Americans (whom Becker and Fagen sometimes backed on the road) and Katz, who landed Becker and Fagen jobs as staff writers for ABC Records in Los Angeles.Â, Eventually, Becker and Fagen’s continued inability to write tunes suitable for other artists (“We’re not particularly good popular-song writers,” Fagen explained to one interviewer) led to the realization that they were the only ones who could perform their songs. We did that, and about three weeks after, they said there’s no bass in a lot of the mix. This was in the VERY early days of Digital recording. With Aja, I only recorded “Peg,” and that was one band. Issued 40 years ago this week, Steely Dan’s sixth studio album “Aja” is still a demarcation point for a great divide among rock listeners. Another highly respected production that Mofi gave a special treatment for the second time.Â, Fun to read about (and to poke around in eBay seeing who wants a lot of money and who may have undiscovered treasures), but since I picked up the entire "Citizen" set for $3 in a used CD/record store, I guess I'm sticking with that.  Â. Steely Dan hadn't been a real working band since Pretzel Logic, but with Aja, Walter Becker and Donald Fagen's obsession with sonic detail and fascination with composition reached new heights. “You know, they’ve got a name for the winners in the world, and the losers should have some sort of franchise as well,” Fagen has explained. The final CEDAR process was their “Phase Correction”, which in reality is a digital azimuth correction. Albums were approved as initially presented to them, no changes.

This was used in conjunction with the EQ processing so that when the noise was removed, there was also no loss of hi-end (a typical false accusation about CEDAR — the reality is an overly aggressive application of the process). I reached out to Grundman, and he explained that Becker and Fagen didn’t simply sign off on his mastering. “Nothing goes with flutter on it. Despite Steely Dan’s success, the bookish and mordant Becker and Fagen couldn’t have had less in common with the charismatic and photogenic duos (Page and Plant, Jagger and Richards) behind the early-‘70s other big acts.

We play rock and roll, but we swing when we play. Every time we ran it down, it was a performance, because we were all performing, right?

[Legendary session drummer] Steve Gadd played on “Black Cow” and “Aja,” and when we finished mixing “Aja” the first time, they said, “Why don’t you bring Gadd in?” He came in and was really f—-d up. Maybe the band's name takes my mind there, but some lines seem pretty blatantly sexy. I’m watching the meters on the Quad 8 board to see how the meters are reacting and everything. Also, while I understand some people might like vinyl rips as their digital version of an album, I’m with Nichols: I prefer digital to vinyl. It was also realized at that point, that the analog tapes were in VERY poor condition due to continuous use for cutting master lacquers to keep pressing records. “We just kept adjusting our standards higher and higher,” Becker explained to GQ in 2014. “So many days we’d make guys do 30 or 40 takes and never listen to any of them again, because we knew none of them were any good. In the Classic Album episode, Fagen calls “Aja” “a journey in space and time…[about] the sort of tranquility that can come of a quiet relationship with a beautiful woman.”Â, Musically, “Aja” is an example of how Becker and Fagen’s pairing of studio musicians could result in spontaneous magic. I was born in 1978 and am always trying to find an Aja older than me as my own random social experiment. 3.  For the subjective analyses, all editions were ripped with XLD and played Audirvana Plus. It was the best-sounding thing I ever heard before it was ruined.” Becker: “If you had heard that album the way it originally went down on tape, you would have heard something else.”) But a sonic debacle by Steely Dan standards was still audiophile quality for its time. While they earned armloads of plaudits and Grammys proving they were right in their rigor, it’s the sound of their records that really makes the point. ABC. According to Hoffman, the Aja master tape “sounded quite dull” and had a “midrange suckout problem,” which he attributed to it being mixed on horn speakers that exaggerated the midrange. Naturally we have to exclude some information. “They are the most demanding group of people in the industry that I’ve worked for,” guitarist Larry Carlton, whom Becker and Fagen trusted to write many of their arrangements, told the Times in ’77. Roger realized that they had sent the wrong original album masters had been sent. Rather, Nichols, Becker, and Fagen actively participated “in the mastering session with [Grundman] and [Grundman, Nichols, Becker, and Fagen] did the album together.”Â. He speaks in a slow, laconic New Jersey drawl (he was born in Passaic), and when his wide mouth smiles, the grin resembles a sneer…. Walter Becker. Aja required a budget that made The Royal Scam’s look like “chicken feed” and took longer to record than any previous Steely Dan album, even though with only seven cuts — “Black Cow,” “Aja,” “Deacon Blues,” “Peg,” “Home at Last,” “I Got the News,” and “Josie” — it contain the fewest songs of any Dan album. “I’ll tell you what I like about our group,” Fagen said in a mid-‘70s interview. Also, I rarely meet an Aja whose parents weren't Steely Dan … Here’s an example: The dynamic between Donald, Walker and Gary was such that when we were actually doing the cut “Aja,” Gary wasn’t in the room. Instead, Becker and Fagen blended their love of Howlin’ Wolf and Duke Ellington with influences as diverse as the Great American Songbook, Dylan, “Brother Ray,” and Leiber and Stoller to create a singular sonic amalgam that had as much in common with the hermetic studio creations of Todd Rundgren and Stevie Wonder, the cynical singer-songwriting of Randy Newman and Warren Zevon, or the glistening pop-funk of Earth, Wind & Fire (whom Dan aficionado Pharrell Williams once dubbed “the black Steely Dan”) as with their supposed “jazz rock” peers like Weather Report and Chicago. The band stopped touring and focused on songwriting and recording. fascinating insights as always... only thing I'd add is that including analog / record versions of these trials would possibly tilt outcomes somehow... for example, I have the original ABC Aja, the MoFi (which was highly regarded), the Robert Pincus consulted and mastered (ex-Cisco, pre-IMPEX) reissue from mid 2000s. Steely Dan were famous for their meticulous approach to recording. As Dan Moffett put it in his meditation on how he became a Dan-o-phile, “The more absurd life gets, the more sense Steely Dan makes sense.”, Thanks to @EmmettM , who mailed the disc to me, I was able to hear the 2018 MQA CD of Aja. We overdubbed a lot of the overdubs over.” “Yeah, we did,” Fagen added. Steely Dan – Aja is the first to be featured in our new (hopefully) regular feature of classic album reviews. Rick Marotta, Chuck Rainey, Don Grolnick, Paul Griffin and Steve Kahn. It works similar to what mastering engineers have used for years to fine tune azimuth on tape playback (reverse polarity then mono and null the HF content in the middle). This was used in conjunction with the EQ processing so that when the noise was removed, there was also no loss of hi-end (a typical false accusation about CEDAR, the reality is an overly aggressive application of the process). Near the 2:10 mark of the title track, the sound stage shifts slightly. I could then bring home two-track 15 ips copies to play on my stereo…. I said, “To be honest with you, no matter what record it was, I can always take something and make it a little better.”, Steely Dan: A Guide to Their Best Albums, by Paul Elliott, Classic Rock, Nov. 12, 2018. “And the name that he has chosen that conveys a certain power is ‘Deacon Blues.’” (Becker and Fagen landed on the name for the winners, “Crimson Tide,” by asking former tour manager Warren Wallace for the names of successful college football teams and choosing the University of Alabama’s moniker. They were standing behind me and Gary said, “F—–g Al, he can mix without even hearing this s—!” [Laughs], Elliot: They told that story to anybody who would come in the room, that Al was capable of mixing without speakers. What’s on the charts is very specific for some of the players…but very open for others…particularly the drummer — he really had to outdo himself on that one.”, “There was a little mark on the chart for Steve Gadd to ad-lib through a certain part and add a couple of different parts that we figured we’d talk about [after the initial takes] and so on,” Fagen explained to Sweet, “but [Gadd] just ripped right through it on the first take and we kept it.”, Gadd’s tempestuous solo has become legendary among drummers, who’ve dissected its every nuance (including a beloved stick click near the five-minute mark that has generated much debate — intentional or accidental?). There was no bass on this.” I started to laugh and they knew instantly what happened. The tight, infectious groove laid down by Rainey and drummer Rick Marotta was almost automatic. Such is the state of the Steely Dan tape legacy. Not music about doom and melodrama — that kind of stuff isn’t really frightening. Thanks for a great article. But we just kept hoping that somehow it was just going to miraculously get good.”. It was released on September 23, 1977 by ABC Records. We had a chart for the tune, and it was like eight pages long — three music stands in front of every musician. I really do need to get a turntable. As Fagen remembered, “We started writing nutty little tunes on an upright piano in a small sitting room in the lobby of Ward Manor, a mouldering old mansion on the Hudson River that the college used as a dorm.” Their experience at Bard also served to heighten Becker and Fagen’s already keenly-developed outsider orientation. But unlike many of their peers this didn’t draw Becker and Fagen into the often-derivative white blues-rock milieu. Moreover, we know that the MFSL’s presentation of Aja, even if it matches the master tape, isn’t how Aja sounded to listeners in 1977 — a sound that made Aja a go-to audiophile test record.Â, The original ’77 release of Aja was mastered by Bernie Grundman. He can’t even play the saxophone. From the release’s description, it’s not clear whether the tape used for this release was the U.S. master tape, a Japanese copy of the master tape, or even an EQ’d “cutting master.” But Takiguchi’s mastering (red) differs from all previous masterings, being slightly less bass-centric than Hoffman’s (purple), but not nearly as bright as the Nichols or Meadows masterings, as midrange focused as the previous Japanese mastering, or as “scooped” in the midrange as the MFSL mastering: Evaluating the different Aja masterings is easily the most difficult task I’ve tackled in a TBVO column so far.Â, None can be easily dismissed based on a lack of dynamics. It was the comprehensive sound of the thing: the song itself, its character, the way the instruments sounded and the way Tom Scott’s tight horn arrangement fit in.”, While the meaning of “Deacon Blues” is fairly straightforward, the cryptic “Aja” has been meticulously dissected by writers and fans. MCA decided to add 4 cuts to the then 8 cut Steely Dan Gold CD. I saw copies all over Ebay for under $20. Aja is the sixth studio album by the American jazz rock band Steely Dan. When music journalist-turned-director Cameron Crowe — who also colorfully described Becker and Fagen’s looks in his ’74 Rolling Stone profile of the band — had one of the groupie characters in his 2000 film Almost Famous proclaim “Wow, they’re cute” while watching the Steely Dan play “Reelin’ in the Years” on “Midnight Special,” it was unambiguously understood as a punch line. Can never decide which one I like best - and this article explains why.
