ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"You guys have taken the torch from Steely Dan and have run miles and miles ahead" - Steve Lukather

SCENE 29
is a melodic masterpiece with songs across the board - a mixture of Pop, R&B, AC, AOR and Jazz by the modern masters, highly acclaimed songwriters, hit makers and lifelong colleagues, JAY GRAYDON and RANDY GOODRUM, working together as the supergroup - JaR. The album is superbly crafted, loaded with original, sophisticated, catchy songs, with subtle harmonies and interesting melodic hooks, co-written and co-produced by Jay and Randy.

The musical concept is totally new, yet slightly familiar to anyone into the Steely Dan sound, as the songs build on a similar formula with complex jazz-influenced chord structures, that are pleasant to the ear with unexpected musical twists, as well as apt, fun and innovative lyrics. All songs are presented with exceptional playing and singing by these seasoned musicians and accomplished songwriters.

As usual Jay Graydon plays his guitar with elegant and intelligent accuracy and Randy Goodrum, the piano virtuoso, with many international hits over the years, adds to the magic of JaR with his inventive solos, jazzy voicings and exciting lyrical flavors. Further, the groove is mature, featuring both cats' voices in a harmonious blend - the perfect pair of exceptional musical gifts.

Check out a video on YouTube - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=65f35iPO0zc - in which Jay and Randy share with us how they worked on their hit song YOUR HEARTBREAK.

Christmas, Easter and Birthday at a time
These little tunes really put tears of joy to my eyes! A perfect mix of jazzy Steely Dan and souly "Turn your love around". This truly is a melodic masterpiece. I wish you a whole lot of airplay, guys! Don't let us wait another 15 years please! Kind regards from Germany

Fantastic !
This album is a melodic masterpiece with songs across the board - a mixture of Pop, R&B, AC, AOR and Jazz. Two years of hard work, writing and recording new material, has resulted in an incredible set of songs with amazing melodies and outstanding playing and singing by these seasoned musicians and accomplished songwriters. Fans of The Dan should buy Scene 29, that's what music is all about ! As usual Jay Graydon plays his guitar with elegant and intelligent accuracy and Randy Goodrum, the piano virtuoso. Please open your ears and BUY THIS GEM !!! NOW !!!

Perfection & Grace
What a great album, well, what would one expect from Jay Graydon & Randy Goodrum! This one\'s got \'Steely Dan\' running through its blood, & it works!

If you\'ve ever heard Randy Goodrum\'s debut album \'Fools Paradise\' from 1982 (produced by \'Elliot Scheiner\' of \'Steely Dan\'/\'The Eagles\' fame) then you\'ll know exactly what to expect. Great chord progressions, wonderful melodies & unbelievable musicianship.

As for Jay Graydon, where do i begin? His Grammy Award winning song writing, \'Turn Your Love Around\', \'George Benson\', \'After The Love Has Gone\', \'Earth Wind And Fire\'. Then his peerless production work with \'Manhattan Transfer\', \'Al Jarreau\', \'Herbie Hancock\', \'Air Supply\' & \'Dionne Warwick\'. To name but just a hand full!

His Guitar playing ain\'t bad either, check out his solos on \'Steely Dan\'s\' \'Peg\' & \'Steve Kipner\'s\' \'The Ending\', (which he also produced) definitive Graydon!

Goodrum & Graydon make stunning music together, this album has many elements of Graydon\'s work with the great \'David Foster\', but essentially it sounds like a tribute to the music of Becker & Fagen. \'Monkey House\', \'Samuel Purdey\' & JAR are the only bands to do the \'Dan\' with conviction, perfection & Grace.
