Keep It Simple Lyrics. Closer by Keb' Mo'. It's a lovely night A beautiful evening Time is slippin' away. It's getting late You should be leaving But I've got something to say. Please, don't go Let's get closer A little bit closer Turn the lights, down low I need to let you know I'm so in love with you Getting closer is all I want to do. We've been friends Close companions There's nothing to conceal. So I'm letting go My little secret To tell you how I feel
Keep It Simple 2. Riley B. King 3. House in California 4. Walk Back In 5. I'm Amazing 6. Proving You Wrong. Keep It Simple (2004) is the seventh studio album by blues artist Keb' Mo'. The album won a Grammy in 2005 for best contemporary blues album, and features Robben Ford, Robert Cray, Vince Gill . Keb' Mo' crafted a warm, wry, blues-informed version of pop Americana that wrestles with contemporary problems like how to pay the mortgage, the high price of coffee, or how to afford a vacation
He plays a killer guitar. I would say his music is sort of a bluesy, pop, jazz combo.
Keb' Mo' is less a blues singer than a performer who works from that conceptual base, and like Bonnie Raitt discovered, bringing a modern pop-blues to a wide audience sure beats playing authentic for purists. Either path is as fake or as real as the other in a post-postmodern age where the blues creaks along as a single DNA strand in a world of rap, metal, and neo-soul. This set combines his 1994 debut release, Keb' Mo', with an album that appeared ten years later in 2004, Keep It Simple, and combined like this, they show the full spectrum of what this easy-to-like performer brings to the table.
