Boz Scaggs never once looked at the audience during a recent early set at the Blue Note. Both when he spoke and when he sang, his eyes gazed upward, over the heads of the crowd, as if he were communing with a spirit hovering near the ceiling.
Yet despite the lack of eye contact this was as intimate a performance as one could ever hope for. Drawing from his new album of standards and ballads, Speak Low Deccafrom his considerable catalog and various songs at large, Scaggs turned the venerable New York club into a cozy living room-the only Shinin You Shinin Day - Soup - Love Sight that could have made it toastier in there would have been a fireplace and a mug of hot cocoa.
Scaggs has always been a class act. He hired Goldstein to arrange what became Speak Low and the result is even more pristine than its predecessor, a true gem. Goldstein was onboard at the Dindi - Boz Scaggs - Speak Low Note as bandleader, keyboardist and arranger as well, and he and Scaggs together have admirably adapted their concepts for the stage.
The band-Paul McCandless of Oregon famewho chose liberally from an arsenal including English horn, oboe and various woodwinds; Bob Sheppard the only holdover from the album other than Goldstein handled saxophones and flutes; Steve Rodby played bass; Jason Lewis, behind a sound booth and out of sight from the audience, banged drums and percussion; and the versatile vocalist Ms.
Alternating between acoustic and electric guitars and no ax at all, Scaggs went after nuance The Future (Love Mix) - Parazide - Makin Love his vocals, his expressions carefully constructed. Scaggs obviously relished playing the standards though.
Oddly, Scaggs never did perform the title track from Speak Low. The release date of that record happened to be but at Dindi - Boz Scaggs - Speak Low Blue Note Scaggs dedicated the hopeful number to Barack Obama.
