Two words : Frank, Zappa ....
Gary Burton with Keith Jarrett, when Jarrett played electric keyboards and soprano sax in the first Seventies.
A special mention for Sam Brown, incredible guitarist, who stands out in the entire album:
Of course I knew of Steely Dan through hearing Reelin' in the years & Do it again back in the 1970s but I never got around to actually listening to some of there albums anyway when Walter Becker passed away nearly three years ago I bought several of there cd albums (the first album with Reelin' in the years & Do it again on the cd in particular) and didn't realise they were so 'jazzy sounding' I thought they were a straight ahead 'rock band' but obviously they weren't.Jazz-rock players are I think more technically advanced because of those jazz chords which really stretch the player (musically and physically !) I once looked at a Steely Dan guitar book when I was trying to learn guitar, and just gave up. Those musicians are extraordinary.
