It’s come to my attention that a number of Song With Orange readers have dropped in looking for an mp3 from Donald Fagen’s long awaited Morph the Cat (available this Tuesday, March 14th). Though I have no mp3s, I wanted to hunt something down for the inquisitive minds/ears. After “hunting,” I realized he has a few full-length songs streaming on his website. "H Gang" is particularly groovy.
Here’s a phone interview with Donald by Chris Rolls, available as a webstream and transcript. Donald talks about his love for dark humor and science fiction, the "sexiness" of wartime, his jazz listening habits and thoughts on hip-hop and keyboard tuning.
