KEB’ MO’

Singer-songwriter and guitarist Keb’ Mo’s music is a living link to the seminal Delta blues that traveled up the Mississippi River and across the expanse of America--informing all of its musical roots—before evolving into a universally celebrated art form.

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The simple blues-informed pop charms of L.A. songwriter Kevin Moore remain unchanged on his eighth album. All twelve of these songs about romance and its triumphs and failures go down easy, thanks to his unhurried and unmannered singing, and arrangements that run slow and spare. That openness allows Moore's slide playing, perfected on the porch of Mississippi delta bluesman Eugene Powell, to add subtle, pretty decoration to tunes like "Your Love" and "Eileen." He's got a sympathetic cohort in John Porter, who also produced Moore's debut album and is especially adept at capturing the sounds of the acoustic instruments that dominate this disc. After pursuing all the twists and turns of love and its baggage on Suitcase, Moore ends the CD with "Life Is Beautiful," an ode to the pure and basic joys of life as a couple, reflected in a blithely primal trio accompaniment of crisp acoustic guitar, mandolin, and drums. --Ted Drozdowski

Product Description

5.0 out of 5 stars Another classic from an unrecognized legend June 13, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Keb' Mo' continues to please the listener with a diverse variety of smooth blues. The album's focus is on love and relationships. A must have for any Keb' Mo' fan. Mo' stays true to his own version of the blues and it pays off. One of his best to date.

Lyrics that we can all relate to, well delivered vocals and a great production makes this album one you can just listen to over and over without having to skip a single track. Mo' is keeping blues relevant by keeping up with the times, his lyrics reflect his life experiences as did the lyrics of bluesman of the past. Thank you Keb' Mo'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blues Whether You Like It Or Not - Pure Music! June 18, 2006
By HagFan
Format:Audio CD
First of all, ladies and gentlemen, this man is the real deal. If you have been a fan from the beginning of his career like me, buy this, and sit back and enjoy. If you have never bought anything of Keb's before , buy this, and sit back and enjoy it. Keb' sings the blues. But, for you non-blues lovers, don't let that scare you. He sings about his life, and he sings about your and my life. We can all relate to his lyrics. B.B. King has always said that to sing the blues, you had to have lived the blues. Well, with all due respect to Mr. King, that isn't always completely true, to a degree.

After you buy Keb's new album, "Suitcase", I'm sure you will want to hear more. I'm sure of it. I would suggest to purchase them in chronological order - "Keb' Mo'", "Just Like You", "Slow Down", "The Door", "Big Wide Grin", "Peace...Back By Popular Demand", and "Keep It Simple". You simply can't go wrong with any of them. Now, I should mention that with the first two that I mentioned, "Keb' Mo'" and "Just Like You", Keb' won "The W. C. Handy Award", which is the biggest award that you can win in the Blues music world. On these albums Keb' sings alot of good old Mississippi Delta Blues, made famous by artists such as the legendary Robert Johnson. And, believe me, Keb' does the music justice and more.

Believe me, this is music that anyone, if they give it a chance, will either love from the beginning, or they will quickly learn to love. And, if you want to hear acoustic slide guitar, or slide guitar on a National Steel Guitar, you won't hear anyone better than Keb' Mo'.

There's only one more thing that I'd like to say, and I hope the people that I'm directing this to don't take it the wrong way, because it certainly isn't meant that way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Headed For Immortality (or, "Gus Missed the Bus") June 27, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I have every one of the eight albums/CDs and DVDs that Keb' Mo' (Kevin Moore) has released during his career. Some I have liked more than others, but I have been disappointed in NONE of them. His latest contribution "The Suitcase" is one of his best efforts to date, and will leave new fans scrambling to buy his previous albums/CDs.

I came in at the beginning, when he was doing small Country Fairs, and Small Music Festivals in places like Eureka Springs, Arkansas (pop. under 2,500), where you either paid nothing to see him, or just a modest entry fee. I'm one of the lucky ones. He is one of the nicest, most laid back and easy-going people I've ever met, and that quality comes through in his music. He, and his music, is unpretentious; his voice is mellifluous, yet tinged sometimes with a raspy, raw edge to punctuate the pain found within many of his songs. The quality of his songwriting is that of a Jackson Browne or a Bonnie Raitt; in fact, both of them appeared - together - in one song on his second album/CD, "Just Like You." In addition, Keb' will be the opening act for Bonnie Raitt when her tour arrives in Little Rock, AR this coming October, 2006. You can bet that I'll be there for the show.

You can also count on top notch musicians playing with Keb' on his albums, that his songs will not be "over-produced," and that they will still bear traces of the somewhat rough edges which usually accompany "the blues." While Keb' Mo's blues may not sound, or feel exactly like that played by some of the old time greats, it is HIS interpretation of the "blues," and his alone, and he does a wonderful job of crafting, stating, and playing the songs/stories his own way.

While some fans of more traditional "Blues" may not appreciate Keb's style, that's okay.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Less You Say July 22, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Keb' Mo's 8th CD is a delightful winner. It follows "Slow Down," "Keep It Simple," & "Peace" as his 4th #1 Blues CD. Although "Slow Down" still ranks as his top charting CD on Billboard (#109), "Suitcase" is so good that it will find its audience. While the entire CD is satisfying, my favorite 4 tracks begin with the bluesy "The Itch." Mo' bounces joyfully on the track and takes his case to the Spirit in the Sky, "Mother Mary, Father Joe, I need to talk to your son. He had his troubles just like mine and he was the chosen one." My favorite track is the bouncy "Remain Silent" with the classic chorus, "The truth will set you free, but the less you say, the better off you'll be." Mo' goes classic on "Whole 'Nutha Thang" with some Dixieland riffs thrown in as he tends a classic theme, "I don't care much about cocaine & you'll never see me jumping out no airplane; Wine & whiskey don't give me no thrills & I don't care 'nuthin 'bout them nasty little pills, But women, that's a whole 'nutha thang." Darrell Leonard's trumpet & Joe Sublett's tenor sax stroke and sass the melody exquisitely. One of the slower tracks, "I'll Be Your Water," ranks up with some of Mo's most emotionally touching music. The simple acoustic guitar backing his trembling voice, "If you ever need a helping hand, I'll be your ship out on the ocean; I'll be your water in the desert sand." The other tracks on the set are also consistently strong like "Still There for Me" & the title track. This is a delightful set that grows on you the more you listen. Keb' Mo' is one of blues' best new acts. Bravo!
