Old school jazz-funk: Josie

Old school jazz-funk: Josie

I’ve always loved Steely Dan.  The song Josie comes from the amazing Aja album. I think I’m right in saying the brilliant Larry Carlton plays guitar on much (if not all) of that album.  Larry also recorded a solo instrumental version of this song.  I have to confess, I don’t think it’s up there with his best. The production is very much of it’s time (late 80s) and it now sounds a bit dated and cheesy!

Anyhow, I’d been practicing soloing over the changes for this song and I thought it might be fun to record the results.
