Boz Scaggs


Boz Scaggs is an American singer, songwriter, and guitarist who gained fame in the 1960’s as a guitarist and lead singer with the Steve Miller Band. He has produced many platinum albums and Scaggs continues to write, record music, and tour.  In the 1970’s, he had several solo Top 20 hit singles, including the hits, "Lido Shuffle" and "Lowdown" from his critically acclaimed album, Silk Degrees, which peaked at #2 on the Billboard 200.  Fans who have followed Scaggs’ remarkable career dating back to the late 60’s with the Steve Miller Band; his solo triumphs with such classic albums as Silk Degrees (1976) and Middle Man (1980); and the splendid assurance of late-period high points like Some Change (1994) and Dig (2001), will instantly recognize Scaggs’ characteristically deft touch as a singer in his newest album, A Fool to Care, featuring  a telepathic core band consisting of Steve Jordan on drums, Willie Weeks on bass, Ray Parker, Jr. on rhythm guitar and Jim Cox on keyboards. “I’m at a point where I’m having a lot of fun with music, more than ever,” Boz Scaggs says about his spellbinding new album, “It’s like I’m just going wherever I want to go with it.” You can hear that sense of fun, as well as that ability and willingness to wander in any musical direction throughout the album’s twelve tracks. The inspirational heart of those songs lies in the sounds of Texas, Louisiana and Oklahoma that played such a vital role in shaping Scaggs’ musical sensibility, but they venture forth boldly from there, ranging from the seductive New Orleans rumble of the title track to the wry social commentary of “Hell to Pay” and a heartbreakingly wistful interpretation of The Band’s “Whispering Pines.”  The album also features performances with renowned singers, Bonnie Raitt and Lucinda Williams.
