Boz Scaggs has critics shouting praise for his new album Speak Low, out today on CD and digitally from DECCA. Today also marks the start of the GRAMMY-winner’s national tour of intimate jazz clubs, which kicks off tonight at the Napa Valley Opera House in California and will make stops in Seattle, Minneapolis, Edmond, New York, Washington DC, Annapolis and Boston over the next month.

 Fans can also catch Scaggs on ‘Late Night with Conan O’Brien’ on 11.13, CBS’s ‘Saturday Early Show’ on 11.15 and an upcoming episode of ‘World Café’

The follow-up to Scaggs’ #1 jazz album But Beautiful, Speak Low has the press signing:

“lovely… Scaggs sings these old songs with natural grace and feeling…”

Jesse Hamlin, San Francisco Chronicle (CA), 10.27.08
 

“Scaggs brings a rich, old-school soulfulness to a varied collection that features a number of not-so-obvious gems…”

– Gene Stout, Seattle Post-Intelligencer (WA), 10.23.08

 

“[‘Speak Low’] is so sublime, so natural… You simply get lost in the beauty of the record itself… Scaggs delivers this selection of songs with the intense intimacy of a singer who has been living these songs his whole life. A noteworthy addition to an already prodigious catalogue.”

– Sal Nunziato, HuffingtonPost.com, 10.27.08

 

“[Scaggs’] low-key but expressive singing is a good fit… orchestrations as subtle as Scaggs’ own voice.”

– Martin Bandyke, Detroit Free Press (MI), 10.26.08

 

“… [Scaggs] again proves himself an able and careful interpreter of [American standards] music while exhibiting a voice that has retained its distinctive velvety rasp…”

– Stuart Munro, Boston Globe (MA), 10.27.08

 

Speak Low’ is a sensual, warm, languid treat…”

 

Bill Eichenberger, Columbus Dispatch (OH), 10.28.08
