EDITORS’ NOTES

The Allman Brothers’ next of kin Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi play the sort of loose and rootsy music—call it jam-rock if you must—that just sounds better in live settings than under studio dissection. But that’s just one reason why their 2012 live album Everybody’s Talkin’ sounds so easy on the ears. Tedeschi and Trucks walk you through their record collections with a solid roster of cover material. They open with the title track, penned by folk deity Fred Neil. Their reinvented version of the tune boogies on a sunflared, bellbottomed strut that most coffeehouse folkies never knew. Similarly, the old Underground Railroad spiritual “Bound for Glory” gets an incredible reworking, with a bluesy slide-guitar solo introducing the tune before the band comes in and turns it into a smoldering groove. The group's take on Stevie Wonder’s “Uptight” is perfectly funky.

Best show ever

David Scanlon

Was lucky to see their show at the tower in Philly last year.
Best show i have seen in thirty years.
Tedeschi has a great voice and Derek plays like no one else.
Enjoy this album.

Amazing.

A significant improvement on their first album -- and that's saying a lot. Midnight in Harlem in particular is just incredible but the whole thing is great. Derek Trucks is among the very greatest guitar players ever. Susan Tedeschi has a phenomenal voice. The songwriting and performances are first-rate. The band is strong and tight. It all comes together to just immerse the listener in beauty. Must-listen. (And if you possibly can, go see them play live! You won't be disappointed.)

simply special

mo' music!

Folks, this band is one of the most special bands to come around in a long long time. They will be with us for a very long time and be one of those historic bands, you know like The Allman Brothers, Gov't Mule, Black Crowes,Grateful Dead, Widespread Panic, etc. I have been fortunate to see them live 2 times, one of which was at the Beacon which I still dream about. I will see them at The Beacon in September in the 8th row.....yes , i dream about that to. Live is the way to go and this GEM captures them brilliantly. Susan's voice is crisp and raspy, just stellar. Derek's guitar is perfectly set throughott each song, he is one of the greatest guitarists of all time, yet 0 ego!!. I love him. Oteil on bass is well....OTEIL, great bass lines, Mike Mattison on back vocals is like FANomenal, Kofi on the keys is mighty fine. Maurice, Kebbi and Suanders put together one of the finest horn sections of all time..... they are horny as hell!!!!, their solos will grab you. Tyler and J.J. take percussion to the highest level and Mark Rivers tightens up the back vocals so well. Each song is very special with amazing lead and back up vocals and jams that just will grab you and take you away. Dereks guitar is simply amazing. You need to check this one out it is a highest of recommends.

About Tedeschi Trucks Band

The Tedeschi Trucks Band -- led by the husband-and-wife duo of guitarist and vocalist Susan Tedeschi and slide guitarist Derek Trucks -- began as a summer touring unit known as Soul Stew Revival. It was both a practical consideration for the pair to spend time together with their young family, and a musical endeavor. Soul Stew Revival featured members of their own bands and numerous guest musicians, and the loose-knit cooperative band performed roof-raising shows full of soul, blues, funk, and gospel standards, as well as original material. After one of these tours, the pair decided to create a home studio to be better able to finance their own recordings.

Tedeschi and Trucks performed a cover of "Space Captain" on Herbie Hancock's Imagine Project, and solidified an 11-piece band from their own units, as well as horn players and percussionists. Renamed the Tedeschi Trucks Band, they signed to Sony's Masterworks imprint, recorded over 30 songs, and eventually pared the selection down to 11 tracks for their debut album, Revelator, which was released in June 2011 and nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Blues Album. It was followed in the spring of 2012 by Live: Everybody's Talkin', a sprawling double-disc set that featured material from Revelator alongside some carefully chosen cover versions. August 2013 brought a second studio album, Made Up Mind, which featured co-writing credits from the Jayhawks' Gary Louris and Soulive's Eric Krasno.

The band toured virtually nonstop. They composed new material on the fly and developed a sprawling set of covers from the annals of blues, rock, soul, jazz, and country music, and also explored African and Indian music on-stage. After a final Allman Brothers Band tour in 2015, Trucks was able to focus all of his energies on his family band, which had expanded over the years to include a dozen members. The Tedeschi Trucks Band entered their Swamp Raga Studio in Jacksonville, Florida and, with Trucks producing, recorded ten new songs -- all written or co-written by the band, a first. Let Me Get By was released by Fantasy in January 2016; it debuted at 15 on the Billboard charts. Live from the Fox Oakland, a live double-album recorded during the supporting tour for Let Me Get By, appeared in March 2017. ~ Thom Jurek
