    Brazilian yacht rock. Ed Motta is the only guy I've ever heard successfully imitate Steely Dan.

    This is quite a tasty earworm. Thanks for posting, have to delve deeper into his recordings.

    ^^^ Hey the Dondi song is great. I too will check out this Ed Motta guy. BTW is that Gong's You on the shelf behind him all the way to the right @ 0:32?

    And I think he does it even better on this song. Again, thanks for posting this, really digging his stuff.

    Does this qualify as yacht rock?

    Beautiful song with instrumental backing by Elliott Randall, Will Lee, and the Brecker Brothers.

    XM Music Lab was an XM Satellite Radio online exclusive music channel. The channel was removed from satellite lineup on April 17, 2006. Music Lab aired mainly progressive rock and jam bands

    XM Music Lab (XM51) - Progressive rock and jam bands. This channel moved from the satellites to online only. Removed on 2008-07-15
    XM Music Lab was the reason I originally signed up for XM back then. Once it disappeared, I actually had an email conversation with Lee Abrams about a dedicated Progressive Rock show on Deep Tracks. He asked me to put together an hour-long demo and a short presentation. To be honest, it didn't get any further than that. He seemed genuinely interested, but probably only from the perspective of his own history with the genre and not XM's interests. Alas, "The Core" never made it to the airwaves.

    Those guys are local here in Atlanta and all great players. They are finding they can sell out full sized outdoor venues on nostalgia alone. Though now they are actually getting into original music too. Here's their new single. Not bad, but considering the talent of the players involved I expected something more catchy and...yachty. How does it sound? Like a Prince leftover?
