Boz Scaggs 

When: Tue., Aug. 12, 7:30 p.m. 2014
Price: $44-$89
I recently caught Boz Scaggs’ performance in a PBS film that documented a 2012 show by The Dukes of September, a group composed of Scaggs, Donald Fagen and Michael McDonald. Famed white-soul vocalists Fagen and McDonald acquitted themselves well, but it was the other famed white-soul vocalist — Scaggs — who came across as the most subtle artist. Scaggs may not be quite the singer McDonald is, but he sings as intelligently as Fagen does, and he wrote “Lido Shuffle” and “Lowdown” — monuments of pop-soul crossover. What I like about Scaggs is his vocal finesse, which seems a function of his modesty and his taste. In his own way, he’s as acute an observer of departed countercultural dreams as Fagen is, and he does have good taste: He cut last year’s Memphis at the Bluff City’s famed Royal Studios, and he covered both Willy DeVille and Becker and Fagen.
