Boz Scaggs / Silk Degrees

This late-70s Top 40 bassist had to learn several tunes with the exact bass parts from this commercial breakthrough for William Royce Scaggs which prominently featured the rhythm section that would eventually scale even greater commercial heights as Toto: drummer Jeff Porcaro, keyboardist David Paich, and bassist David Hungate. As smooth and slick as Boz’ image was at the time, Hungate and Porcaro’s grooves drive the platter with David’s rhythm and blues passages rendered with the utmost economy and (Fender) precision.
