Keller Williams has spent the better part of his remarkable career proving to listeners that he needed no one’s help filling a concert venue with a rich, multilayered sound. A one-man band of the highest order, the deeply talented multi-instrumentalist employed loops and samples crafted in real-time to, quite literally, jam with himself.
It’s interesting, then, that Williams’ latest project involves two of the finer musicians on the contemporary jam/funk/jazz scene, in the form of drummer Rodney Holmes (Santana, Steve Kimock Band, Maceo Parker) and bassist Rob Wasserman (Ratdog, Elvis Costello, Bruce Cockburn). The Keller Williams Trio made its live debut in early September, and will stop by the Tralf Music Hall (622 Main St.) for a show at 8 p.m. Sept. 26.. Tickets are $20 advance, $23 day of show (box office, Ticketmaster).
