AjaRanked 145/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
Long argued as one of the (if not THE) best rock recording ever and a permanent fixture on many a demo system in the late '70s and '80s, Aja was the culmination of everything Donald Fagen and Walter Becker aspired to accomplish in their storied careers. It was the first album certified platinum (eventually selling more than 5 million copies in the U.S.) by the then-new RIAA sales tracking system. It made Steely Dan superstars. It contained three ubiquitous U.S. Top 40 singles in Peg, Josie and Deacon Blues, though each of the seven tracks are wonderful.
Steely Dan's meticulously crafted sixth album was Walter Becker and Donald Fagen's stab at becoming mainstream jazz-pop superstars. And thanks to sweet, smart, slippery tracks like Deacon Blues and Peg, they did just that - and won a Grammy for Best Engineered album too.1. Black Cow

AjaAja is the second in a trilogy of releases from Toronto art rock quartet The Darcys. An interpretation of Steely Dans 1977 studio masterpiece, the album was arranged, produced and recorded by the band during the Summer and Fall of 2010. Moody, dense and textured, Aja is an exploration of physical and emotional space and the real and imaginary divisions within it.1. Black Cow

Yatha Bhuta Jazz Combo12 track spiritual, deep jazz LP from Parisian producer Onra and friend - fellow producer, composer and arranger - Buddy
Sativa. Combining as the Yatha Bhuta Jazz Combo this LP may be a surprise to followers of Onra, while Buddy Sativa
will be known to some via his own 2011 jazz leaning LP Deus Ex Machina on Favorite Records. There they collaborated
on their first jazz track - Indica. Pleased with the results they carried on, keeping it simple and adhering to
straightforward play-more-jazz stylings they have crafted this LP over sessions sandwiched between their assorted
commitments over the last two years. Opening the LP Universe is Love, a shout to Lonnie Liston Smith, is the first track
they created under the new no-rules-spontaneity rules. The rest of the LP was created in a similar vein - a drum pattern
for tempo or a bassline for tone and layering instrumentation repeatedly on top. Mistakes allowed and encouraged!
Spoken word from Brooklyn poet Aja Monet on The Time is Now, otherwise it's an instrumental trip.
So Yatha Bhuta - as it really is, insight, a mix of experience and spontaneity, a LP not created for release, more a
liberating, therapeutic break from their other oft constraining aliases.
Jazz because they like it and not for the sake of it, a chance meeting with the late Mati Klarwein's son at an exhibition in
Dublin, led to the icing on the cake as the record is beautifully housed by the artists Conceptual Tree painting. The LP
will be out in April on vinyl and download preceded by a limited 7 inch.Side A
