Steely Dan's best-selling album, "Aja" was a tour-de-force of session musician virtuosity, with no fewer than 36 guest master-players appearing on its seven tracks. For whatever reason, Steely Dan remains vastly unhip with contemporary cool kids (Too slick? Too smooth?), so that ostensibly makes it a guilty pleasure today.
