It’s appropriate that Boz Scaggs’ new album is Out of the Blues, since the blues is what first sparked his five-decade musical career.
Born William Royce Scaggs in Canton, Ohio on June 8, 1944, he grew up in Oklahoma and Texas, where he spent his teenage years immersed in the blues, R&B and early rock ‘n’ roll. While attending school in Dallas, he played in local combos. After several years as a journeyman musician around Madison, WI and Austin, TX, Scaggs spent time traveling in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia, eventually settling in Stockholm where he recorded the album Boz.
Returning to the U.S. in 1967, Scaggs joined the Steve Miller Band in San Francisco, performing on that group’s albums Children of the Future and Sailor, before launching his solo career with 1968’s seminal Boz Scaggs LP, recorded in Muscle Shoals, AL for Atlantic Records. Scaggs continued to mine a personalized mix of rock, blues, and R&B influences, along with a signature style of ballads on such influential ‘70s albums as “Moments”, “Boz Scaggs & band”, “My Time”, “Slow Dancer”, 1976’s “Silk Degrees”. The latter release became a massive commercial breakthrough, reaching umber Two and remaining on the album charts for 115 weeks. It spawned three Top 40 hit singles: “It’s Over”, “Lido Shuffle” and the Grammy winning “Lowdown”. Subsequently, “We’re All Alone”, from that same album, would become a #1 single for Rita Coolidge. “Silk Degrees” was followed by the albums “Down Two Then Left”, and “Middle Man”, and such hit singles as “Breakdown Dead Ahead”, “Jojo”, and “Look What You’ve Done to Me”.
Despite his ‘70s successes, Scaggs spent much of the 1980s out of the music-biz spotlight, traveling, opening a family business, fathering young children and founding the San Francisco nightclub, Slim’s. He returned to the studio after an 8-year hiatus and released, “Other Roads”, “Some Change”, “Dig”, the Grammy-nominated “Come On Home”, the unplugged “Fade Into Light”, in in-convert retrospective Greatest Hits Live as well as a stint touring with Donald Fagen’s New York Rock & Soul Review; all while continuing to maintain a loyal audience in the U.S. and overseas, particularly in Japan. A pair of albums of jazz standards, “But Beautiful” and “Speak Low”, the latter topping the Billboard Jazz chart, demonstrated Scaggs’ stylistic mastery, as did the Southern-flavored Memphis and the rhythm & bluesy “A Fool to Care”.
“Music has been a constant companion and I’m feeling more free with it than ever,” Scaggs comments, “I feel like I’ve found my voice through all these years, and I’ve gotten closer to where I want to be with my approach.”
A digital download of Boz Scaggs’ forthcoming album, “Out of The Blues”, is included with every ticket for this show. You will receive an email with more details about this offer approximately 7 days after your purchase.
