Boz Scaggs Speak Low, his new album
August 05, 2008
This fall, Decca Records will release renowned musician Boz Scaggs' "Speak Low" LP, the silken-voiced singer's newest collection of standards and first studio album in five years, available on vinyl September 30 and in all other forms October 28.
Co-produced with Gil Goldstein, Boz Scaggs interprets Ellington, Mercer, Rodgers & Hart, and other classic writers and composers. In addition to Goldstein on piano/keyboards, the line up includes Alex Acuna (drums), Bob Sheppard (woodwinds), and Scott Colley (bass).
Boz Scaggs began his distinguished career as a teenager and over a dozen records later, when Boz Scaggs released "But Beautiful," the critical and fan response was tremendous, and the album debuted at number 1 on the Billboard Jazz charts. The Boston Globe said that Scaggs had "made one of the year's best albums of jazz vocals" (6/28/03), while Jazz Times noted that the release marked "an enticing new chapter in an already dynamic career" (September 2003). Boz Scaggs once told the LA Times (6/12/03), "I'm going to be around this music for awhile. I love its melodic and harmonic qualities, and it's going to impact what I sing and what I write. The door's been opened."
