Overall, it's a decent album - I'd give it 3. Boz is a surprisingly adept interpreter of sly standards but loses grip on the torchy stuff. There's not enough gravitas in his performance to take you to the depths.

However, the trio is great and smooth, recording is sharp and warm. A nice CD to play on a nondescript Sunday afternoon. Boz Scaggs won me over with the jazzy "Downright Women" in He then got swallowed in pop and blues-y composition. In this set he includes standards and a return to a jazzy style, less bluesy, but not absent same, and he gets a lushness that usually requires a battalion of strings to accomplish. His group is perfect for the menu.
Paul Nagel at the piano and Eric Crystal's smooth sax are the right stuff for this one. I rate it above the "Volume Two" effort. Over all I like it. If, like me, you're a Boz Scaggs fan you will love it. A couple of comments that I can make; An album of standards like this, needs to stay a little more mainstream with the song selection. I was raised on this kind of music and I love all of it but from a sales standpoint I think a couple more really recognizable songs could help, also this sparce orchestration sounds good but after a whole album the over all sound begins to sound much the same.
I know this sounds strange but I love the sound, the sax work is very reminiscent of Paul Desmond's work with Dave Brubeck.

Maybe some bigger more orhestrated numbers could have broken the sameness of the album. As I have said I love the album and all of his work,. One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful. Boz can sing some ballads and standards. I would like to hear him with a better rhythm section. The kb player and tenor player are pretty good but the rest of the group could be better especially the bass player.
Boz with a cookin' rhythm section might be incredible. But all in all a good cd. MP3 Music Verified Purchase. What a great album.

Never listened to him much then heard him on YouTube and was impressed. Great to listen to. This is simply a superb collection. Scaggs has the depth, confidence, and soul to sing these standards with a pure, truth-scarred ease He doesn't muck around with these classic melodies or adorn them with shallow "jazzy" embellishments And the cool, sweet, beat, and breezy quartet supporting him in accoustic brilliance through exquisitely calibrated arrangements of heartfelt intelligence.
