Keller Williams - Laugh

Keller Williams has always had the unexplainable need to make listeners grin, smile, and LAUGH. With his sixth CD release, Keller perfectly exhibits his playful spirit without diminishing his musical genius and technical expertise. Offering fifteen dynamic songs, LAUGH is a truly inspired album by one of today's most gifted and understated musicians.

LAUGH is a mischievously brilliant piece of work. Featuring bassist Tye North (formerly of Leftover Salmon), drummer Dave Watts (The Motet) and a variety of outstanding guest musicians, Keller and friends explore odd timings and quick changes with incredible precision. Keller's use of words as sound, rather than as meaning, is eloquently embodied in Gallivanting. Songs like Alligator Alley and One Hit Wonder exemplify Keller's knack for catchy melodies, and Bob Rules offers a look into Keller's unusual sources of inspiration. Keller performs each of these songs with similar effect during his live solo performances. As one critic reviewed "[Keller] uses his own ingenuity and technical savvy - creating a variety of virtual instruments to devastatingly tuneful effect with his mouth, and occasionally setting up a tape loop of himself playing and/or singing [which are recorded live in front of his audience] and then accompanying himself. "Still, Keller does not underestimate the contributions of his band mates on this current project, especially in capturing spontaneous musical interactions. In fact, some of Keller's favorite parts of the album come directly from his collaborations with Tye and Dave. Such unprompted instrumentals as God is My Palm Pilot and Freeker Reprise best display the creative spark ignited by the trio's dialogue, especially the songs‚ electronic house tendencies. Perhaps they also offer a glimpse into the next genre Keller will introduce and wield into his highly original sound.

But for now, Keller offers up a hearty Laugh, brimming with all those qualities that make Keller a standout amongst today's musicians. "I didn't know what the album title would be until the end of the recording session," Keller explains. "When we were cleaning the tracks, there was a hell of a lot of laughing to erase. We were having so much fun. We left in a few good chuckles." Chances are, listeners will be chuckling too.
