Boz Scaggs Feels More Free with His Music than Ever


The Union Colony Civic Center, 701 10th Ave., presents legendary singer, songwriter and guitarist, Boz Scaggs on Thursday, September 12 at 7 p.m.

Enjoy Boz Scaggs’ new album, “Out of the Blues.” An appropriate title since the blues is what first sparked his five-decade musical career. Scaggs is currently in the midst of a personal musical renaissance. Liberated from the old-school album and tour cycle, he has had the ability to work on his own terms in the past decade.

Throughout his career, Scaggs has created a series of eclectic, highly personal recordings that showcase his mastery of multiple musical genres, including the jazz standards collections “But Beautiful” and “Speak Low,” which topped the Billboard Jazz charts, the soul-inflected “Memphis” and the bluesy “A Fool to Care,” each hitting #1 respectively on the Billboard's Blues charts.

With the release of “Out of the Blues,” Boz continues to mine a personalized mix of rock and rhythm and blues influences, along with a signature style of ballads. Boz feels as if he’s found his voice through all these years and he’s feeling more free with his music than ever. "Out Of The Blues,” from its very onset, feels like one of the most special of my career," Scaggs asserts. "It just came so easily, and the sessions fell into place so effortlessly. Sometimes you assemble your dream team and it doesn't work. But in this case, the chemistry was right and it all came together beautifully. It was a complete joy from beginning to end, and I'm really happy with it."
