For Pete’s Sake

California State University, Northridge (CSUN) Jazz ‘A’ Band dares to cover what might be the most challenging piece ever penned by Don and Walt, the title cut of the Grammy winning comeback album Two Against Nature (2000). Joining the youngsters, as special guest, is none other than Pete Christlieb, saxophonist of record on “Deacon Blues” (1977) and “FM” (1978), two quintessential Dan studio classics. Old Testament alum. New Testament tune. 🙂 And the kid on guitar is Victor San Pedro, CSUN class of 2016. Write that down.

Arranged by Fred Sturm. Directed by Matt Harris. Recorded live from the Valley Performing Arts Center, California State University, Northridge, October 14th, 2015.


Apogee (1978), Pete Christlieb / Warne Marsh Quintet, Donald Fagen, Walter Becker, producers.
