Two summers ago, three giants of the music business brought their collective talents together to form the Dukes of September Rhythm Revue. Donald Fagen (Steely Dan), Boz Scaggs and Michael McDonald (Doobie Brothers) played a series of dates that mixed their own hits with classics from, mostly, the annals of rhythm and blues.
