Steely Dan's new album, Aja, has the definite Steely Dan sound to it, yet it is different from their other albums. Steely Dan is Walter Becker and Donald Fagen, who write all of the songs. Many assorted musicians play on the albums. In the new Aja album, more horns and especially saxophone are used. The songs are generally a bit slower. The overall sound is very clear and perfect. Like usual for Steely Dan it is recorded and performed with quality.
