Boz Scaggs

  • Count Basie Center for the Arts 99 Monmouth Street Red Bank, NJ, 07701 United States (map)

It’s appropriate that Boz Scaggs’ new album is Out of the Blues, since the blues is what first sparked his five-decade musical career. Born William Royce Scaggs in Canton, Ohio, on June 8, 1944, he grew up in Oklahoma and Texas, where he spent his teenage years immersed in the blues, R&B, and early rock ‘n’ roll. After several years as a journeyman musician, Scaggs spent time traveling in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia, eventually settling in Stockholm where he recorded the album Boz.
