Keller Williams "Kids" CD Review and Giveaway...

ABCD Diaries
2010 Holiday Gift Guide:
Kids

We recently had the chance to review the latest CD from Keller Williams, Kids.


About Keller Williams:
"Keller Williams has been called guitars mad-scientist, a one-man-band for the new millennium and dozens of other clever sobriquets dreamed up by fans and music journalists trying to get a handle on his uplifting and ever-shifting style of music. Williams is considered by some but not by himself, to be a master of the acoustic guitar, known for his ability to solo over layers of spontaneously created loops. He is a generous performer who plays down to earth acoustic music that defies any effort to find a convenient pigeonhole.
If pressed for a definition, Williams, as adept with language as he is with a guitar pick, calls it solo, acoustic jazzfunk reggae technograss - or simply - solo acoustic dance music.
On stage, Williams exudes a restless yet mellow energy. Barefoot he dances in place, alternately spinning out long solo lines and bouncing chord clusters that draw listeners and dancers into his own private world of rhythm and melody. The songs flow like rivers, full of flickering, kaleidoscopic images revealing new shapes, colors and meanings with every listen. On the stage behind him is a forest of stringed instruments as well as a keyboard and various drums and percussion toys. Williams jumps between instruments seeking out the perfect sound, the perfect note, the perfect beat that will transport him and his audience."

Product Description:
"A true original, Keller Williams has won the hearts and imaginations of a seething tide of young adults who are musically 'in the know.' With his sixteenth album, Kids, Keller stakes out his next conquest- the absolute adoration of the under-10 crowd and their parents, caregivers, and relatives. With Kids, Keller creates a style of family music that's all his own, and reaches his young audience in a way that matters. While other performers play for kids, Keller plays with them. For the album, Keller takes influences of traditional bluegrass, 'Chester & Lester' innovative guitar technique, Robin Williams, and Bobby McFerrin and transports them to warp level. And though Keller's virtuosity extends through his phenomenal instrumental technique and range of vocal styles and effects, he never allows his supreme musicianship to get in the way of the pure joy of the music. Keller Williams' high standards are preserved in his first CD for children and families, Kids."
What we thought: We really enjoyed this CD:) The kids loved the upbeat songs and I loved the kid-friendly lyrics. Keller Williams is an amazingly talented musician and has the ability to engage and entertain even the youngest listeners AND their parents:) He also includes his young daughter on several tracks which really adds to the kid-friendliness of Kids. This CD would make the perfect stocking stuffer for kiddos 10 and under. ABCD Diaries gives Keller Williams and Kids an A+!
