''Gaucho'' is the seventh studio album by the American Jazz rock band Steely Dan. Released in 1980, it was their final studio album before re-grouping for a concert tour after a 12 year hiatus. Their next studio album ''Two Against Nature'' did not emerge until 2000.

The songs marked a significant stylistic change for Steely Dan, introducing a more minimal, groove and atmosphere based format. The harmonically complex chord changes that were a distinctive mark of earlier Steely Dan songs are mostly absent here. Songs usually revolved around a certain rhythm or mood, a definite departure from the suite-like style of "Aja", the title track of their previous record.

This was the last Steely Dan album to feature Michael McDonald's back-up vocals. He would continue to sing and play with Steely Dan on tour in following years, most prominently in the summer of 2006 Steelyard "Sugartooth" McDan and The Tour, on which he was the opening act in an effort to promote Fagen's first new album in 13 years, ''Morph the Cat''. - Wikipedia
