SD alumnus Denny Dias at the Iridium, yesterday or the day before.  Wish I could have sent this great performance to you, Pete!

"Denny Dias was working with his own band out of his basement in Hicksville, Long Island when he placed an ad in The Village Voice that read: 'Looking for keyboardist and bassist. Must have jazz chops. Assholes need not apply.' Soon Donald Fagen and Walter Becker joined Dias' band and the new group immediately began playing their own material. [Then] Dias fired the rest of the band and he, Fagen, and Becker moved to California, where they added drummer Jim Hodder, guitarist Jeff 'Skunk' Baxter, and vocalist David Palmer before recording for ABC/Dunhill Records as Steely Dan."
