Donald Fagen, Morph the Cat

Donald Fagen, Morph the Cat
For my new whimsical set, "What I'm listening to," a sort of desert island disc set, only I'm not limiting the number of recordings I can bring.

This is another addictive album! Donald Fagen, formerly of Steely Dan, (as though anyone out there didn't know) delivers the best of his 3 solo albums, and that's saying a lot, since I loved the other two. This is about life in post-911 New York. I love the melodies, the funky arrangements, the lyrics. Favorite tunes on this disc? That's hard, but "What I do" ( a discussion between Donald and the ghost of Ray Charles), H Gang, Morph the Cat, and for pure comedic joy "Security Joan," all about going through airport security in the post-911 world.
