Dukes of September to Release Concert Video

On March 18, the Dukes of September Rhythm Revue, a supergroup consisting of Donald Fagen, Boz Scaggs and five-time Grammy winner Michael McDonald, will put out a Blu-ray/DVD of a concert recorded in Nov. 2012. A clip of ‘Kid Charlemagne’ is embedded above.

The release of ‘The Dukes of September Live’ will coincide with the March 13 airing of the show, which was filmed at New York’s Lincoln Center, on PBS’ ‘Great Performances.’ The songs touch on hits from the catalogs of all three men — including ‘Hey Nineteen,’ ‘What a Fool Believes’ and ‘Lido Shuffle’ — with some of choice covers of their favorite soul songs, such as Chuck Berry‘s ‘You Never Can Tell,’ Arthur Conley’s ‘Sweet Soul Music’ and the Isley Brothers’ ‘Who’s that Lady?’

“I love revues like the Dukes,” Fagen said via press release. “Different singers, all kinds of surprises. If the listener’s indifferent to one tune, they’ll dig the next. Plus, we’re a real band. Mike, Boz, the musicians and singers are on stage all night.”

The Dukes of September grew out of Fagen’s New York Rock & Soul Revue, which toured from 1989-1993 and released a live album in 1991.
