Boz Scaggs’ extraordinary career began with his rockabilly days with the Steve Miller Band in the late 1960s and morphed into classic, self-authored albums like Silk Degrees (1976), Middle Man (1980), Some Change (1994), and Dig (2001). Fans of Scaggs’ singular, silky voice over the years will appreciate his maturation and enhancement as a singer on A Fool to Care. He brings a sly drawl to a funky workout like Li’l Millet and the Creoles’ “Rich Woman,” a conversational intimacy to Bobby Charles’s “Small Town Talk,” and an elegant delicacy to the Impressions’ “I’m So Proud.” His soul is effortless and deeply felt, never making a show of itself, but unmistakably evident in every lyric he delivers.
JD McPherson will satisfy traditional American rock ’n’ roll and R&B purists while also exhibiting his rarefied gift for mixing and matching disparate stylistic shapes and textures.
