About this product

Bill MacKay shows up at the party with a tune he’d heard over the years and a sole goal: no bad high school jazz tonight! Finding the Latin swing inside Steely Dan’s dead-eyed bummer unlocks Bill’s affirmation of the song’s caustic power, replacing the showbizzy dream-fulfillment of the original production with layers of elegant guitar and requinto, over which Bill Callahan and the Bonny ‘Prince’ frankly emote the familiar tale of artistic fall and rise.
