Americana, Country, Rock, Singer-Songwriter

Boz Scaggs climbed the mid-’70s charts with sly, silky, suave soul/R&B/pop hybrids like “Lowdown” and “Lido Shuffle.” After a mid-career hiatus, he returned with a more eclectic mix, including standards, jazz, and rock, while his nicely textured voice, skillful phrasing, and keen interpretive flair acquired yet more character. Scaggs’ new Out of the Blues completes a loose album trilogy (MemphisA Fool to Care), all featuring producer/drummer Steve Jordan and all-star studio vets, paying tribute to his many influences. Blues’ focus is just that, covering the likes of Bobby Blue Bland, Jimmy Reed, and Magic Sam.
