Singer/songwriter/guitarist Keb’ Mo’ is particularly suited for a children’s recording because his performance style is easy yet animated. He’s not afraid to sound a touch corny or nostalgic and can fill touchy-feely lyrics with passion and humor. Big Wide Grin, which is on the Sony Wonder kids’ label, finds Mo' turning the soul classics “Love Train,” and “Grandma’s Hands” into acoustic homages to family. “Isn’t She Lovely” and “Color Him Father” become sweet ballads in his hands, while Joni Mitchell’s “Big Yellow Taxi,” which features Mo’s son Kevin Jr. dueting, is transformed into a folksy ode to conservation. Slim and Slam’s “Flat Fleet Floogie,” “America the Beautiful,” and a pair of Mo' originals about adoption and feeling free round out the set, making. Big Wide Grin a laid-back family affair.
