ケヴ・モ

ホーム > ブルース人名録 >

経歴・特徴

ソングライターとしてもギタリストとしてもすばらしいテクニックを持つケヴ・モは、古いカントリー・ブルースマンのイメージを振り撒きながらも、ソウルやロックの要素を巧みに織りまぜることで、コンテンポラリーなサウンドを生んでいる。ロサンゼルス育ちだが、両親がルイジアナ出身とテキサス出身という血筋で、少年期のケヴ・モはゴスペルに囲まれていた。21歳のとき、パパ・ジョン・クリーチのバンドの一員として彼のツアーに同行、アルバムにも参加した。80年に本名のケヴィン・ムーアでR&Bのソロ・アルバムをカサブランカから発表したものの、ほどなくレーベルは倒産してしまった。80年代半ばにモンク・ヒギンズのバンドで演奏し、そこでブルース界の大御所たちと出会い、本格的にブルースに興味をもつようになる。90年には演劇『Rabbit Foot』でブルースマン役を演じた。94年、ケヴ・モとしてみずからの名を冠したアルバムをリリース。自作のほか、ロバート・ジョンソンのブルースも取り上げた。96年の2枚目『ジャスト・ライク・ユー』、98年の『スロー・ダウン』、04年の『キープ・イット・シンプル』で3度グラミーを受賞している。

CDガイド

[A]:Keb Mo

1994年のファースト・アルバム。プロデューサーはジョン・ポーター。暖かみのあるヴォーカルと現代のフレイヴァーを加味し、ロバート・ジョンソン・スタイルのフォーク・ブルースを滑らかにする。

Keb Mo

[B]:Just Like You

1996年の2枚目。プロデューサーは前作と同じジョン・ポーター。ボニー・レイット、ジャクソン・ブラウンがゲスト参加。ポップスに接近し、作曲はより巧みになった。とても耳馴染みの良い、リラックスさせる音楽。ブルース純粋主義者達は落胆したかもしれない。グラミー賞で最優秀コンテンポラリー・ブルース・アルバム賞を獲得。

Just Like You

[C]:Slow Down

1998年の3作目。前作と同じくグラミー賞で最優秀コンテンポラリー・ブルース・アルバムを受賞。

Slow Down

[D]:ザ・ドアー

ボビー・マクファーリン、メリサ・マンチェスターなどが共作者として名を連ね、ミュージシャンもグレッグ・フィリンゲインズ(キーボード)、ジム・ケルトナー(ドラムス)といった腕利きを配し、ポップス性を強調。

ザ・ドアー

[E]:Martin Scorsese Presents the Blues: Keb Mo

ベスト盤。[A]から6曲、[B]から3曲、[C]から4曲、[D]から1曲、映画『ティン・カップ』のサントラから「Crapped Out Again」、さらに新録音の「Peace of Mind」を収録。

Martin Scorsese Presents the Blues: Keb Mo

[F]:Keep It Simple

2004年発表。相変わらずの堅実な仕上がり。現代的な生活の小さな問題を扱った歌詞をシャレたブルージーなサウンドが補完する。

Keep It Simple

[G]:Live & Mo

Live & Mo

[H]:Reflection
