Jammin' with K Dub

Although I've listened to a Phish album or two, I would hardly classify myself as a jam band aficionado. Fortunately, that's not required when listening to Keller Williams' new album Dreams, which was released earlier this month.

Keller, also known as K Dub, is commonly known as a one man band on the jam band scene. Although the acoustic guitar is his primary instrument, Keller uses looping techniques to build up his compositions. On his latest album though, he has chosen to recruit some well known help (including Victor Wooten, The String Cheese Incident, Martin Sexton, and Bela Fleck) to add some musical muscle.
