Steely Dan’s Peg – Music Production mini Documentary

With the Music Producers Forum’s first studio workshop, I was inspired to find a good case study to post. I found and absolute classic from the iconic 70’s group Steely Dan.

A pioneering Jazz Fusion band, Steely Dan developed most of hit tunes in the studio, with a long list of the best studio musician of the day. In this Youtube video, core members Walter Becker and Donald Fagen, take you through their production, right from the desk playing the original master tracks.

And after you’ve seen the production documentary, check out the below live production. A rendition that is true to the recorded version, and show’s that these boys still have it, the ability to cut it live and attract some amazing musicians to join them on stage.
