One-of-a-kind avant-soul collective Burnt Sugar turns its attention to the sophisticated jazz-pop of Steely Dan in what sounds like a truly magical matchup. Along with group mastermind Greg Tate, you'll hear from Carl Hancock Rux, Vinia Mojica, Vernon Reid and many others. Expect an all-too-brief cameo from cinema legend Melvin Van Peebles.
