TOURING IS EASY, TALKING IS HARD

A FOOL NOT TO CARE
Some singers get better with age. Boz Scaggs’ latest album, A Fool to Care, is loaded with covers (Al Green, Spinners, the Impressions) plus an excellent original: “Hell to Pay,” a blistering duet with Bonnie Raitt. He plays The Smith Center on May 13 ($29-$99).
