In 1994, Walter Becker’s solo debut 11 Tracks of Whack established that he had more to say – and more ways to say it – than could be contained in the epochal oeuvre of Steely Dan. Circus Money marks Becker's long-awaited return to stand-alone status. Aiding and abetting Becker is Grammy-winning producer and co-writer Larry Klein, and a roster of heavy-hitter sidemen including drummer Keith Carlock, guitarist Jon Herington, saxophonist Chris Potter, and keyboardists Ted Baker and Jim Beard. For all its talented complement, listening to Circus Money produces an unquestionably Beckeresque experience. Singular, sublime, and just a little warped; there can be no imaging this music as coming from anyone else.
