Keller Williams- Lil' Sexy Blues
Keller Williams is a major attraction on the jam band circuit, but the new Dream should expand his audience.The album includes pairings with the likes of Bela Fleck, Fareed Haque, Charlie Hunter, John Scofield, Martin Sexton and Bob Weir. "Cadillac," the collaboration with Weir, is destined to become a treasured classic in the Dead community. My favorite track is Dream's least audacious effort. "Lil' Sexy Blues" features Indian musicians Sanjay Mishra and Samir Chatterjee. It's a revelation. I don't know which is more amusing- the silly video for Dream's "Play This," or the comments from fans who don't quite grasp that it's satirical.
My review of Wednesday night's Incubus and Albert Hammond, Jr., concert is here.
Kansas City Click: This is an entrance! Roby Lakatos, clad in a gold jacket, strolls to the stage through a fawning crowd of Europeans. Maybe he'll find a way to recreate this romantic vibe in Johnson County tonight at the Carlsen Center. Country star Gary Allan plays Ameristar on Saturday night. Is It's Over Kansas City's best rock band? Find out Sunday night at Ott's burger joint on the Plaza.
