"JoJo" by Boz Scaggs

Peak:  17

Genre:  Pop, Soft Rock, Blue-Eyes Soul

Pop Bits:  Although this second single from his "Middle Man" album would not be his last chart hit, the album itself would be his last studio effort for eight years. This self-imposed exile from music put a damper on his career, but the legacy of his early albums still remain strong. "Middle Man" would be his third straight platinum album.

ReduxReview:  "JoJo" always reminded me of Steely Dan. It has the same R&B/Smooth Jazz feel as a lot of Steely songs from that era. I really like the groove and it's a good listen, but it is just lacking a more substantial chorus or hook to draw attention. Makes for good background music though.

ReduxRating:  6/10

Trivia:  Scaggs and his wife own the Scaggs Vinyard in California. They have been producing wines since 2000.
