Boz Scaggs

The Memphis Tour

Saturday, May 3 at 8pm, $65/$55

A casual listen to the Boz Scaggs discography makes one thing obvious: Boz Scaggs is both a musical seeker and a man of sizable talent as a singer, songwriter and guitarist. His explorations in blues and R&B, Rock and Jazz have produced lasting work and a career that has brought with it acclaim, a loyal following, and an enduring respect among musicians.

Known for songs from his multi-platinum 1975 release, Silk Degrees featuring hits like Lowdown, which won the Grammy Award for “Best R&B Song,” Lido Shuffle, What Can I Say and the ballad We’re All Alone.

Boz made seven records for Columbia including Moments, Boz Scaggs and Band, My Time, and Slow Dancer, and featured songs such as We Were Always Sweethearts, Dinah Flo, You Make It So Hard and Slow Dancer.

With MEMPHIS (429 Records), his first studio album in five years, Scaggs looks back musically and biographically. “I had been thinking about a record that involved going back into my past and finding songs that match my style and my voice,” Scaggs says. With producer Steve Jordan and a crack band he puts a distinctive touch on classics like Rainy Night in Georgia, Corinna Corinna, and Mixed Up, Shook Up Girl, as well as on a couple of originals. Thirteen tracks were recorded in three days at the city’s landmark Royal Studios, where the late Willie Mitchell produced so many of Al Green’s and Anne Peebles’ legendary albums.
