On March 18, the Dukes of September Rhythm Revue, a supergroup consisting of Donald Fagen, Boz Scaggs and five-time Grammy winner Michael McDonald, will put out a Blu-ray/DVD of a concert recorded in Nov. 2012. A clip of 'Kid Charlemagne' is embedded above.
The muted tones, occasionally punched by brass or hi-hat, on Boz Scaggs’ ‘Memphis’ should sound familiar to R&B fans. They’re the same warm, subtle sounds found on soul recordings made by Al Green and other artists at Memphis’ Royal Studio in the 1970s. Green’s producer, Willie Mitchell, drew a casual, inviting timbre from the room that gave Green’s classic songs their distinctive hue. Scaggs, recording at Royal Studio with producer Steve Jordan, conjures a similar sound on ‘Memphis.’
The Dukes of September, the supergroup/soul revue featuring Donald Fagen, Michael McDonald and Boz Scaggs, will be recording their performance tonight (Nov. 16) at New York's Lincoln Center. The concert will be broadcast on an upcoming installment of PBS' 'Great Performances' series.
Donald Fagen, Michael McDonald and Boz Scaggs, will tour again this summer as the Dukes of September Rhythm Revue. The three most recently went out on the road together in 2010, where they drew from both their respective catalogs and the R&B and soul that they grew up loving.
