Boz Scaggs

Amphitheater at Las Colonias Park
Boz Scaggs

To sing the Great American Songbook convincingly, it helps to believe in chance. All
the legendary composers of standards - George and Ira Gershwin, Richard Rodgers and
Lorenz Hart, Harold Arlen, the list goes on - had something to say about life's
serendipities. Their songs are full of unexpected encounters, fine romances that blossom
out of nowhere. Their wistful and often impossibly beautiful melodies convey the magic
of happenstance and also its flipside, the capricious cruelty of fate. Their lyrics
celebrate the notion that life can change in an instant - when that vision of loveliness
steps out of a dream and you suddenly find yourself bewitched, bothered and
bewildered.
Boz Scaggs believes in this sort of thing. You can tell that from the opening stanzas of
‘Speak Low,' the sublime and sexy follow-up to his critically acclaimed 2003 standards
collection ‘But Beautiful.' Recorded in four days with the musicians playing live
together in the same room, Speak Low oozes the spontaneous essence of torch song. It's
romantic singing done casual and breezy - from the first notes, you sense that everyone
involved is alive to the possibilities of the moment. At the same time, it's a feast of
carefully wrought moods - here's Scaggs, owner of one of the most distinctive voices in
popular music, singing sweet and low in the thick shadows. About the lover who, he
discovered too late, was too good to be true.
