Grammy Award - "Album of the Year" - Nominated (1994)

Kamakiriad is the second solo album by Steely Dan artist Donald Fagen, released in 1993. It was his first collaboration since 1980 with Steely Dan partner Walter Becker, who played guitar and bass and produced the album. The album is a futuristic, optimistic eight-song cycle about the journey of the narrator in his high-tech car, the Kamakiri (Japanese for praying mantis).

The jazz harmonies and elaborate arrangements that made Steely Dan so popular are on full display with this release. This immaculate jazz-pop collection sounds like it could have been recorded mere months, not 11 years, after The Nightfly. A Steely Dan LP in all but name, Fagen and Walter Becker offer killer horn charts, lite-funk grooves, airy guitar riffs and hipster sci-fi lyrics.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
