DONALD FAGEN BAND
Toronto 2006 [no label, 2CD]

Live at Massey Hall, Toronto, Canada; March 13, 2006. Very good soundboard.

Jane Stevenson, Toronto Sun:

“How ya feelin’ Donald?” a male fan shouted out to Steely Dan singer-keyboardist Donald Fagen on Monday night at Massey Hall. “I’m feeling groovy, baby,” smiled the 58-year-old, who’s taking part in the first solo tour of his three-decade-plus career.

And groovy Fagen, who postponed his Boston show and cancelled his Ottawa concert due to illness, proved to be over the course of an hour-and-50 minutes worth of polished, sophisticated jazz-pop. His set list equally favoured his three solo albums - including “Morph The Cat” which is in record stores today - and his Steely Dan catalogue, much to the delight of the crowd. Honestly, it’s hard to tell the difference between his Steely Dan/solo songs in terms of sound.

But judging from the funky, warm - and yes even groovy - energy on stage on Monday night at Massey, with Fagen backed by an impressive nine-person band including two soulful female backup singers, he should do the solo thing more often… Fagen oozed quirky charm and a genuine playfulness.

  3. If you ever get a chance to take in a concert at that grand old dame, Massey Hall in Toronto Ontario, do not hesitate to do so, its a beautiful concert hall that has seen a range of artists from Charlie Parker to Led Zeppelin and now here Donald Fagen.
    thanks Big O

  8. Great Sounding Concert keep posting Steely Dan / Donald Fagen shows. Special Thanks to Skip Gildersleeve RIP.

  9. If you want the perfect analysis of the hipster music scene by someone who, like me, is a bit grey around the edges (an everywhere else), look for Mr. Fagan’s Coachella journal in Rolling Stone. Thanks to everyone associated with posting this show as it is amazing! Off to see U2 at US Airways Arena in PHX. Anyone have tapes from this tour, they would be greatly appreciated. Review when I recover. PS: It truly is a beautiful day in Phoenix today. Cheers, and love from the desert.
