Boz Skaggs

When: Sun., May 10 2009

Along with sonic brethren Steely Dan and Hall & Oates, blue-eyed soulman Boz Scaggs pretty much owned the mid-'70s pop charts. A former Steve Miller Band guitarist, Scaggs reinvented himself as an uptown crooner on 1976's Silk Degrees, an album saturated with hits ("Lowdown," "Lido Shuffle," "Georgia," "Harbor Lights") that remain his signature songs to this day. A gifted and expressive singer, Scaggs will also draw upon his recent forays into blue-eyed jazz in his gig today at the Pikes Peak Center (190 S. Cascade Ave., pikespeakcenter.com); expect more of the rarified style of Gil Evans-Miles Davis collaborations than the standard-issue Nelson Riddle imitations everyone else does. Tickets range from $42 to $57 for this 7 p.m. Mother's Day show. (Awww ...) — Bill Forman
