Donald Fagen puts in work on his very first solo outing away from Steely Dan.

GDGH - EP#6 | Donald Fagen - The Nightfly (1982)

Grandes discos, Grandes historias podcast

Detrás de un gran disco, hay una gran historia, y nosotros te la contamos sin filtros!. En esta sexta entrega de "Grandes discos, Grandes historias”, nos metemos en el mundo de la radio nocturna. “The Nightfly” (1982), su primer album en solitario, y pieza de museo. No nos quedamos cortos con las alabanzas hacia este ejemplar de una de las obras mas tempranas del digital recording, ya que algunos de los temas que conforman el album son los elegidos por poseedores de equipos Hi-Fi, y Audófilos para calibrar sus equipos aún hoy. Un disco que se basa en sus aventuras de pequeño en los suburbios de New Jersey, y cómo este joven se tomaba el bus de una hora a Manhattan casi día por medio a ver a sus héroes actuar en el Village Vanguard. Nombres como: Charles Mingus, Sonny Rollins, Thelonious Monk, o Bill Evans iban nutriendo a este jovencito que luego devolvería todas sus experiencias a nosotros, los escuchas, en forma de obras ineludibles cuando hablamos de fineza, groove y alta calidad de ejecución en todo punto de vista. Sean todos y todas bienvenidos a escuchar música... Canción Intro y Outro:  - Whisky in the Jar (live) - The Dubliners.   Es una versión cover de la original, y poseemos permiso de reproducción en el contexto de nuestro podcast. Portada del disco: - Portada del disco original, descargada de internet.

TEMEPLÁTAN: 'The Nightfly', Donald Fagen, 1982

Plátubarrin

Amerikanarin, Donald Fagen, gjørdi hesa plátu sum eina ævisøgu við støði í fimti- og sekstiárunum, har hann vaks upp í spentu kaldakrígstíðini. The Nightfly hevur eitt slag av serstøðu millum aðrar áttatiáraútgávur, tí hon er gátufør, eins og upphavsmaðurin sjálvur er gátuførur. Og millum tónleikarar og ídnar lurtarar hevur hon eins nógv serstøðu fyri dygdina.
