Keller & The Keels - Grass

Keller and the Keels
best of 2006Keller & The Keels - Grass
(CD) Keller Enterprises, 2006-03-21

Review :
Keller Williams, one of the most (if not the most) talented guitarist/entertainer from the last ten years, is still a complete stranger to France. He played in Paris a huge total of 30 minutes, between 7:00PM and 7:30PM, opening for a shitty Michael Franti show some two years ago. At least 30 people have seen him that day... :) He's just self-released a new album, recorded in two days in August 2005 with Larry Keel (guitar) and Jenny Keel (half-sized bass). You can order it through all cool online record stores, you know, the ones who do the job of selling everything you really wanted, cheap and fast...
Included are lotsa nice and surprising cover versions, as usual: Pink Floyd ("Another Brick In The Wall"), Tom Petty ("Mary Jane's Last Breakdown"), Mother Hips ("Stunt Double"), The Grateful Dead ("Loser" and "Dupree's Diamond blues"), Yonder Mountain String Band ("New Horizons"), and Karl and Harty ("I'm Just Here to Get My Baby Out of Jail", a bluegrass classic and an old-time Jerry Garcia favorite). Our advice is simple: don't miss this new slice of acoustic sunshine dried up in progressive bluegrass, and get your hands on Keller Williams' "Sight" DVD... Djouls

Press Release :
Keller Williams' self released album GRASS is a delightfully bizarre collection of anything-but-traditional bluegrass songs. Like most recordings from Keller, GRASS is self indulgent and possibly offensive to those who lack a sense of humor, but Keller had a damn good time recording it.
For the project Keller teamed up with old buddy and award-winning flat picker Larry Keel on guitar, and Larry's beautiful rock-solid in-the-pocket acoustic bass playing wife, Jenny Keel. The result is an organic and airy acoustic record featuring 10 songs, originals and unexpected cover tunes, that yield to a pure love of music. GRASS makes it better.
