The blues is the root of (almost) all popular American music. Active since the 70s (first under his baptismal name Kevin Moore, then under the pseudonym of Keb’ Mo’ from the 90s), the musician Keb’ Mo’ has widely explored the blues roots and even made several times around the trunk. After fifteen albums, a handful of Grammys and deserved international recognition, he decided with Good To Be… to rest a little under the branches: soul, folk, pop. The first track is called Good To Be (Home Again) and the last Quiet Moments. Between the two, we suspect, this album will not be a summit of experimental radical music. More like a sweet cocoon of feelgood songs, the musical equivalent of a bath or hot chocolate (or even a bathtub full of hot chocolate). The tone of the record is set by its successful cover of Bill Withers’ hit Lean On Me. Here, we will hear orchestrations of strings, a soft organ, choirs, tempered guitars and the always young and soulful voice of Keb’ Mo’. The songs composed by him are not as memorable as the melody of Lean On Me, but all are elegant, round the corners and invite relaxation, lightness or romance. Ideal to listen to on the terrace of a café in the spring, this album confirms that it is still and always in the old pots that the best soups are made. We would have just liked a little more salt on a few pieces that flirt with variety…
