Nearly Dan with special guest Tom Scott at Jazz Alley

by E. Joyce Glasgow - SGN A&E Writer

Nearly Dan with Tom Scott
October 5-6
Dimitriou's Jazz Alley


Nearly Dan, Seattle's own 14-piece Steely Dan Tribute band, performed for two sold-out nights at the Jazz Alley with stellar saxophonist/composer/ arranger/conductor Tom Scott as special guest.

Tom Scott arranged many of the sophisticated, catchy, and memorable horn arrangements heard on Steely Dan recordings, as well as playing many of the featured saxophone solos. Scott has had a distinguished career, winning three Grammy Awards and being nominated for 13, has written numerous scores for film and television, and has played and recorded through the years, both as the leader of his own band and with a Who's Who list of top and varied musicians including Joni Mitchell, Barbra Streisand, The Grateful Dead, Frank Sinatra, Pink Floyd, The Carpenters, Whitney Houston, George Harrison, Paul McCartney, The Blues Brothers, Blondie, Kenny Chesney, and Quincy Jones.

Nearly Dan is a highly dynamic and accomplished group of nationally prominent instrumentalists and vocalists, based in Seattle. The band is made up of horns, keyboard, drums, guitars, bass, four backup vocalists and one lead vocalist, Galen Green, who sounds uncannily like Donald Fagin. Their performances are energetic, tight, and joyful, and they successfully convey and engage their audiences with the infectious rhythms, melodies, harmonies, unusual lyrics, unique and sophisticated musical arrangements, and lushness of Steely Dan's music. The musically seasoned group members come from varied backgrounds, including jazz, rhythm and blues, rock, country, fusion, and swing.

The band played 11 Steely Dan tunes, and were joined on most of them by Tom Scott. The evening's performance included such popular hits as 'Deacon Blues,' 'Black Cow,' 'Reelin' in the Years,' 'Peg,' Nearly Dan's own original Latin arrangement of 'Get Back Jack,' a horn-based, instrumental version of 'Maxine,' 'My Old School,' and an encore of 'Aja.' Tom Scott contributed three of his original tunes to the performance: 'Apple Juice,' 'Breezin' Easy,' and the especially funky 'Street Beat.'
