Tedeschi Trucks Band: Everybody’s Talkin’

Tedeschi Trucks Band

Everybody's Talkin'

Label: Sony
Media: CD
Genre: Rock/pop

This new outing by the Tedeschi Trucks Band is likely to cement the group’s reputation as one of today’s hottest live bands. Formed in 2010, TTB is led by blues singer/guitarist Susan Tedeschi and her husband Derek Trucks, slide guitar player for both The Allman Brothers Band and his own band. TTB’s first studio album, Revelator, was released the following year and won a Grammy for Best Blues Album. In this two-CD set (three discs in the vinyl release), the band tears through a set-list that features crowd- pleasing originals from Revelator along with some freeflowing rock and roots covers from the likes of Stevie Wonder, Muddy Waters, Joe Cocker, and the Staple Singers. The eleven member ensemble moves seamlessly from soulful blues to jazz-rock to gospel. Tedeschi’s rich vocals mix the grittiness of Janis Joplin and Bonnie Bramlett with the delicacy and restraint of Bonnie Raitt. Trucks’ fiery solos, particularly on “Bound for Glory” and “Learn How To Love,” are clearly influenced by guitar idol, Duane Allman, and the Indian-fused “Swamp Raga“ intro to “Midnight in Harlem” is a mini- masterpiece on its own.
