NATIONAL HEADLINING TOUR THIS FALL
Boz Scaggs’ ‘Out Of The Blues’ is out now on Concord Records and is currently #1 on the iTunes and Amazon Blues charts, and Top 10 on iTunes’ overall albums chart. Boz just discussed ‘Out of the Blues’ on NPR’s Weekend Edition and the album has been praised by the Associated Press, Rolling Stone, Billboard, American Songwriter and more.
‘Out Of The Blues’ is a self-produced mix of blues deep cuts and new originals that finds Scaggs – born in Ohio, raised in Texas and Oklahoma – reconnecting with his earliest musical and regional influences. It marks the final piece of an unofficial trilogy of genre albums for Boz, which began with the Steve Jordan-produced albums ‘Memphis’ and ‘A Fool to Care.’
‘Out of the Blues’ features an all-star studio band, including guitarists Doyle Bramhall II, Ray Parker Jr. and Charlie Sexton, bassist Willie Weeks, drummer Jim Keltner, keyboardist Jim Cox, and Jack Walroth on harmonica, all supporting Boz himself on guitar, bass and vocoder.
