A casual listen to the Boz Scaggs discography makes one thing obvious: Boz Scaggs is both a musical seeker and a man of sizable talent as a singer, songwriter, and guitarist. His explorations in blues and R&B, Rock and Jazz have produced lasting work and a career that has brought with it acclaim, a loyal following, and an enduring respect among musicians.
With MEMPHIS (429 Records), his first studio album in five years, Scaggs looks back musically and biographically. (His father and grandparents were from Memphis, as is his wife.) "I had been thinking about a record that involved going back into my past and finding songs that match my style and my voice," Scaggs says. With producer Steve Jordan and a crack band, he puts a distinctive touch on classics like "Rainy Night in Georgia," "Corinna Corinna," and "Mixed Up, Shook Up Girl," as well as on a couple of originals. Thirteen tracks were recorded in three days at the city's landmark Royal Studios, where the late Willie Mitchell produced so many of Al Green's and Anne Peebles' legendary albums.
