Great change of pace for Keb!
If you're expecting to hear the usual soulful blues approach on Keb Mo's new album "The Reflection," you're going to be disappointed. If you go into it looking for some amazing songs with incredible vocals that have a unique blend of pop, R&B and jazz, you're going to love it! The album features an all star list of guest musicians which include Vince Gill, India.Arie, Marcus Miller, Dave Koz and David T. Walker. The results are phenomenal. Things get rolling with "The Whole Enchilada," a song with a ton of soul and a mid tempo groove that is catchy and melodic. "The Reflection (I See Myself In You)" is an acoustic tune with a beautiful melody and deep, meaningful lyrics. The song strikes me as so genuine and sincere you can tell it's right from Keb's heart. "Crush On You" has some of the most beautiful melodies I've heard in a long time. India.Arie has such a cool voice and she sounds incredible with Keb. I hope they release an entire album together! "We Don't Need It" is a great song with some awesome guitar licks. Every song on this album is expressive, infectious, and well written. The production is crisp and fresh, and I would highly recommend this to anyone.
