Walter Becker of Steely Dan died from complications of esophageal cancer on September 3, 2017. In a note released to the media, Donald Fagen remembered his longtime friend and bandmate, and promised to "keep the music we created together alive as long as I can with the Steely Dan band."
After Becker's death, Steely Dan honored commitments to perform a short
North American tour in October 2017 and three concert dates in the United
Kingdom and Ireland for Bluesfest on a double bill with
the Doobie Brothers. The band played its first concert following
Becker's death in Thackerville, Oklahoma, on October 13. In tribute to Becker,
they performed his solo song "Book of Liars", with
Fagen singing the lead vocals, at several concerts on the tour.
In February 2019, the band embarked on a tour of Great Britain with Steve Winwood. Guitarist Connor Kennedy of The Nightflyers joined the live band, beginning with a nine-night residency at The Venetian Resort in Las Vegas in April 2019.
Steely Dan's albums are notable for the characteristically 'warm' and
'dry' production sound, and the sparing use of echo and reverberation. Steely
Dan is famous for their use of chord sequences and harmonies that explore
the area of musical tension between traditional pop sounds and jazz.
