Keb’ Mo’ – Martin Scorsese PresentsKeb’ Mo’ – Martin Scorsese Presents
Sony Released in 2004

This CD is part of a 2003 special blues series on PBS that featured several great blues artists. Keb’ Mo’ (Kevin Moore) is a well traveled blues and gospel rooted musician with professional roots as far back as his time with The Jefferson Airplane. His style clearly developed by hard work and study until in the mid-90’s he became Keb Mo as we hear him in this terrific CD. While Keb' Mo' covers Robert Johnson twice here, he generally uses traditional blues only as a touchstone, preferring to write his own songs in a blues-influenced but clearly pop style.

If the PBS series were chronological set, Keb' Mo's music would have come at the end as an example of where Keb’s sound has evolved to at this stage of his life. There is the huge performer list of 18 talented musicians and 13 strong cuts for this CD. This gives you some idea of the undertaking to produce this great album. He has become a true blues musician and this CD is a great example of this. Keb’ gets a 4.7 on the STLBluesometer.

Later – Gator.
