    This instructional dvd is well worth the money. Fagen and Bernhardt deftly analyze and perform several Steely Dan tunes, sitting side-by-side on a Bosendorfer and a Rhodes 73. If you're into music theory, this is for you -- it's rather sophisticated in its analyses -- not really something...

    to watch at half-attention. I really respect Fagen and his tendency to put his name on high-quality material like this.

    Donald Fagen charts have always been distinctive and thought provoking. What a Treasure to find a DVD and Chart transcriptions that clarify what is truly (Hard to hear)! Anyone who wants to get into the sound of Steely Dan,I highly reccomend!
