EDITORS’ NOTES

Formerly known as a Soul Stew Revival, Tedeschi Trucks Band revamped their moniker to reveal that they are husband and wife Susan Tedeschi (guitarist/singer) and slide-guitar luminary Derek Trucks (who also fronts his own project and plays with the Allman Brothers Band). The duo built a home studio before assembling nine other musicians and recording 30 songs, boiling the best down to the tunes that comprise their 2011 debut. Revelator opens with “Come See About Me,” a Deep South-marinated groove-rocker peppered with Trucks’ trademark slides and a grinding Hammond B3 organ. Tedeschi’s soulful wailing makes for a perfect centerpiece to the song. Tedeschi Trucks Band forsakes excessive soloing, giving Tedeschi plenty of room to let her vocals soar. Check out the gospel-tinged “Ball and Chain” or the burning urgency of her voice on the sweltering “Until You Remember.”
