This review is from: Marvelous Fantasy (Audio CD)
This is a wonderful recording of wonderful music. Sophisticated yet unassuming, precise with an easy flow. If you allow, it will transport you. The dynamic range and expressive playing makes active listening in a quiet environment best. It is certainly not background or car driving music in my opinion. Mr. O'Neal deserves the listener's full attention and rewards with an artful, subtle, nuanced performance of his music. Bravo.

This review is from: Kamakiriad (Audio CD)
If you have taken the time to actually search Kamakiriad you should just get it - so few have found it. If you need someone to convince you that you will like it, just move on - I doubt you will have the patience to discover it. Fagen writes juicy frameworks of short stories with the details - you fill in the big picture. Kamakiriad has individual songs but there is an overlying "theme" to the album - in my listening over the decade since its release it has become one of my top few favorite all-timers - unlike so many albums, the jazz/pop mix never gets old -in fact I find it constantly refreshing, entertaining, and new sounding - a true test of any worthwhile music. Similar pleasures can be found in much of Fagen's Steely Dan work and his only other solo album (to date) 1982's "The Nightfly". Welcome - Enjoy!
