Apr 18, 2014 — Donald Fagen and Walter Becker are masters of irony and erudition. The pair perform their Steely Dan hit "Josie" and standards "Mood Indigo" and "Hesitation Blues."
Apr 18, 2014 — Today we've got a live performance with the Philadelphia-based band. We'll also learn about perfectionist Adam Granduciel's creative process and relationship with early band member Kurt Vile.
Apr 18, 2014 — The singer-songwriter has come a long way from the shy solo sets of his early career. He's found his voice in outward-looking, confident material.
