My daughter turns 17 next month. That means that it’s been nearly that long since Walter Becker put out a solo release. How are the two events related? Well, he had to watch her once for me when she was just a few months old while I did some work in his home studio on Maui. At the time he was working on that first release, 11 Tracks of Whack (yes, it was released in 1994 but these guys take a LONG time to record, as you may have heard). I could shoot myself for not having gotten a picture of him with her, and often wondered what he would normally charge for babysitting. I really enjoyed that time and learned a lot just listening to him both play and talk.
Anyway, WB has a new release coming out soon, and I’m looking forward to hearing it. Good luck with it, buddy.
