Long considered one of the great "blue-eyed soul" singers, Boz Scaggs was an early member of the Steve Miller Band before launching a solo career and making his commercial breakthrough with the 1976 release Silk Degrees. The album rode the charts for 115 weeks, spawning three Top 40 singles: "It's Over," "Lido Shuffle" and the Grammy-winning "Lowdown."
Scaggs spent much of the '80s focusing on his family and his San Francisco nightclub, Slim's, before returning full force in the '90s with the critically lauded Some Change, Dig, the Grammy-nominated Come on Home, the unplugged Fade Into Light, the in-concert retrospective Greatest Hits Live and a stint touring with Donald Fagen's New York Rock & Soul Review. He covered jazz standards on 2003's But Beautiful and the 2008 chart-topper Speak Low, then returned to his blues and R&B roots for another string of albums, most recently Out of the Blues in 2018.
The latest album finds Scaggs paying homage to heroes like Jimmy Reed and Bobby "Blue" Bland, backed by veteran session players including drummer Jim Keltner, bassist Willie Weeks, and guitarists Doyle Bramhall II, Ray Parker Jr. and Charlie Sexton.
