Great show last night at the Tedeschi Trucks Band gig at the historic Taft Theater. Definitely a different groove than the Wanee footage of the band I've been peeping. The band had Wanee in the rear view mirror and they were indoors as a headliner for a sold out show all their own, and that made for a good night.

Last evening's concert was intense and, as Mulehead1/Kevin said last night, more open and improvisational than usual. The arrangements were built more around exploration. Derek has nothing to prove these days, and because of that, his dynamics, especially with the TTB, are wonderful. This band is at the level where the axis point of melding has already happened so they are feeding off of each other and letting it flow with confidence. PLus, they are putting new music out which is awesome.

I enjoyed all of the Derek Trucks Band tunes in a big way. At times, it was the DTB With Horns. Dug it. "Get What You Deserve" S~M~O~K~E~D, and with Derek ad Oteil sitting in chairs.

And Oteil and Kofi were messing with each in a big way last night musically. It was fun to see those two brothers totally and mischieviously tweak the melody in a way that had Derek turning around to look their way and laugh. He caught what they were doing big time. Cool to watch on the left side of the stage.

The jazz portion of the show was off the hook as well. Derek and The Boys sans Susan and the horns except Kebbi. Disc Chord all up in this Dant! The trumpet player MB took full advantage of his solo time later on and blew it up with triplets to the moon. He had all the free time he wanted, which made it cool.

But in a big way, the night belonged to Susan. She played a solo last night that blew the roof off the sucka. I've seen her play since the mid-1990s, and what she did last night was so sweet and intense. Susan's solo was the best thing I have ever heard her do live or otherwise, and the rest of the band behind her knew it as it was happening and reacted to it as well. Very special. The band totally backed off and threw the ball to her and she took the time to build the solo from scratch, and her tone and dynamics and choice of riffs was wonderful. Built it to a head and rode it over the waterfall. She killed it, and got a standing O for it. It's that moment you hope for when you hand a solo over to somebody and something special takes place.

Oteil, in the middle of Susan's solo, arched his back and lifted up on his toes, smiled big and wide while looking dead at Susan in her trance, and raised his right hand up and extended a mid-song thumbs up as high as he could while still riffing with his left hand. That perfectly described what was going down. After it was over, the only thing I could think of was the Susan player haters in the Beacon forums who have dogged her too many times, especially during the Beacon runs. If any of them play guitar, last night Susan would have embarrassed them and left them in the dust. I'd damn near pay to see that happen.

Mulehead1/Kevin put it this way after the show - "Susan tore off a couple sizzling leads tonight. I've seen her many times, but never playing like she did at this show."

This is one funky band who was well-aware that they were playing a sold out house in one of the legendary cities of the history of funk music, home of some of the best of 1960s-early 70s James Brown's recordings for King Records, home of Bootsy and so on. Susan acknowledged this from stage as she talked about Cincinnati and hometown boys the Isley Brothers. And, it turns out that Susan's grandmother lived in Cincy so she spent much time here as a kid as well. So, it was Old Home Week here in town for the band musically and personally.

Derek and Susan was in a good mood after the show, as they usually are, and she was hearing kudos for her ripping which was cool. They are Merlefest newbies so I briefed them as to that adventure this weekend, encouraging them to get out of the bus and see what this premier roots music festival is all about, and that especially goes for Oteil seeing how he is now a banjo player. By the way, Oteil is playing a Deering Goodtime model banjo, and I threw some Jimmy Arnold and Bryan Sutton and Gilian Welch and Noam Pikelny banjo tunes his way to encourage him on this new journey, especially the late Arnold's sublime solo version of "Sail Away Ladies" that the amazing Tommy Jarrell taught him many moons ago before he died. PLus, Jerry Douglas and a lot of their other friends will be there, so it should be fun for them. They left last night to get to North Wilkesboro a day early just for that reason. Hopefuly, all of them will meet the legendary Doc Watson there at Merlefest while they can as he is now 88 years old right now. And seeing how Doc's late son Merle turned Doc onto the music of the Allman Brothers many years ago, it will all hopefully fit like a glove.

Great review DH, and I am sitting here getting excited that Derek and Oteil are going to Merlefest. I cannot even imagine my joy if Derek goes a little rootsy in his musical journey.

Derek

Good review. You should send it into the Enquirer. I was there too. Great concert with an enthusiastic crowd. The TTB was in great form.

I thought that there would be more ABB T-shirts in the crowd but alot of the audience appeared to be new fans there to see a good new band with an appealing sound.

GREAT review Derek, Thank You. You're making me drool over my TTB tickets on September 8th, The Mountain Winery in Saratoga, CA.

That's nice to hear. I think sometimes we tend to forget that Susan sacrificed her career for her family for years. I read an interview with her some years ago where she said, "The kids come first, then Derek's career. I come in last. I've just accepted that."
So how could someone in that position be expected to keep up their chops on the guitar? Now that she's been back in the swing musically for a few years it just makes sense that her playing would have improved.

I have never been too impressed with Susan's guitar playing. I like her playing ok, but she doesn't play anything that gets me excited. I like her voice a lot and her songs and I have most of her albums, but I often wince when she's on stage with ABB because she just doesn't play at their level, which admittedly is pretty damned high. Maybe being in the band with Derek will push her to get better. That would be great. I'm sure she has the ability, she just needs to develop it. I'm excited to see the band at Peach Fest.

I saw Susan last year at the Taft in Cincy opening for the Jimi Hendrix Review. She was the only female in the line-up and certainly held her own on the guitar with the likes of Johnny Lang and Kenny Wayne Sheppard. I had always thought she was a good blues singer but the guitar was really a plus.

Here are a few pics we took from the show last night. Nothing professional, just off the phone. What a fun night. Susan looked to be having a blast and I was not sure what got into Oteil, but he was more animated than usuall last night. And Derek, was, well, Derek. The band really has it going on right now and we were glad we made our plans to see them in Cinci before they announced playing in Indy at the Murat. If you get the chance, go. It was incredible.

An interview with Mike from yesterday;

One of the upsides of this band is you really get to see what a great guitar player Susan is. She’s not just the front woman out there singing and putting a nice veneer on things. There are a couple of set pieces where she really gets to do her thing, especially as a blues guitarist." - Mike Mattison

Truckin’ to MerleFest

By Frank Ruggiero


This Saturday marks the Tedeschi Trucks Band’s first appearance at MerleFest, and Mike Mattison is somewhat concerned.

“I hope we’ll fit in,” harmony singer Mattison said.

However, MerleFest, returning to Wilkesboro April 26 to 29, celebrates what award-winning Deep Gap flatpicker and festival host Doc Watson calls “‘traditional plus,’ meaning the traditional music of the Appalachian region, plus whatever other styles we were in the mood to play.”

In other words, Mattison and company have nothing to worry about.

Its music hailed for an idyllic blend of blues, soul, rock, funk and Americana, the Tedeschi Trucks Band hits MerleFest’s Watson Stage at 9:30 p.m. Saturday, April 28.

Fronted by husband and wife Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi, the band is an amalgamation of the duo’s unique talents, which, according to their official bio, have been described as “heavily steeped in the blues tradition, yet open to far-ranging influences, including rock, gospel, jazz and world music. Each has produced recordings that share a sensibility best described as a swampy mix of rootsy, rockin’ American music.”

Tedeschi is known for her vocal prowess in American blues and soul, having fronted the Susan Tedeschi Band and released two Grammy-nominated albums.

Trucks is the youngest musician named in Rolling Stone’s Top 100 Guitarists of All Time, and his dedicated performances in his own celebrated Derek Trucks Band led him to a permanent gig as co-lead guitarist for The Allman Brothers Band (he’s also nephew to Butch Trucks, the Allmans’ original drummer).

Tedeschi and Trucks met during a 1999 Allman tour, fell in love and married in 2001. In early 2010, they put their individual music projects on the backburner to pursue something different, a “collective that will allow everyone in the band a chance to shine,” Trucks said at the time. “We’re not sure yet what it will sound like exactly – we’re just going to let it come together and not force a vision on it.”

The vision evolved, rather, over the course of a year and a half into the 11-piece Tedeschi Trucks Band, featuring harmony singers Mattison (who sang lead in the Derek Trucks Band) and Mark Rivers, brothers Oteil Burbridge (former bassist with The Allman Brothers Band) and Kofi Burbridge (keyboardist/flautist with the Derek Trucks Band), drummers J.J. Johnson and Tyler Greenwell, trumpeter Maurice Brown, tenor saxophonist Kebbi Williams and trombonist Saunders Sermons.

“I think part of the mission of the band is … to stretch out and to keep (improvisation) happening in popular music,” Mattison said. “Everybody’s good at what they do. From the songwriter’s perspective, there’s no having to translate or explain what you want to get out of (the music) … everyone just gets it immediately.”

For the Tedeschi Trucks Band, Mattison said songwriting is a group effort. “Everybody brings something to the table,” he said.

This applies to performing, as well, as each band member’s invested in the music.

“It’s been a great experience for Susan and Derek, because they’ve always wanted to work together, and finally they’ve been able to make this partnership happen on stage,” Mattison said. “One of the upsides of this band is you really get to see what a great guitar player Susan is. She’s not just the front woman out there singing and putting a nice veneer on things. There are a couple of set pieces where she really gets to do her thing, especially as a blues guitarist.

“And, of course, Derek – that’s what he does, that’s who he is. But there are moments in the horn section – Kebbi Williams is an excellent player, an amazing improviser, and the same thing with Oteil and Kofi Burbridge. The band is really a vehicle to let people know how talented some of these people are individually.”

The listening public got a taste with Tedeschi Truck’s Band’s 2011 Grammy-winning release, “Revelator,” which will be followed by a live compilation called “Everybody’s Talkin’,” slated for release May 22.

As for MerleFest, Mattison said the band will likely perform some new material, along with numbers from Tedeschi’s and Trucks’ solo careers. “Some of the old, some of the new, but we’ll see … who knows what will pop up?” he said.

The Tedeschi Trucks Band performs at 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 28, at MerleFest on the Wilkes Community College campus in Wilkesboro. For tickets and more information, visit http://www.merlefest.org. For more on the Tedeschi Trucks Band, visit http://www.tedeschitrucksband.com.

A real nice moment last night when Derek came back on stage for the encore, he handed a young boy who was in the crowd an autographed slide. He did it will little fanfare and it was a grate gesture on Dereks part.

The TTB for me is my new favorite band. They play everything that falls into soulful American music. They are for me the ultimate ensemble. It's not about the guitar at all it's about the song and the music and that for me was very refreshing and the way music is suppose to be approached.

Rock guitar has gotten farther and farther away from what it's job is...to play the song...not play the volume or the tone or what friggin amp your playing because the audience doesn't give a rat arse what guitar except the wannabee's but the general audience wants to enjoy the song and that's what I like about the TTB.

Plus they do the jam stuff but it's not about the jam it's about the music....great band....great example of an ensemble

Last nights show was simply amazing. I'd seen the Soul Stew tour a few years ago when they first toured together mostly doing covers, then at Wanee 2010 when they closed the festival. To be honest I enjoyed those shows, but wasn't that impressed as when I'd seen DTB on their own. I also saw Susan last year at the Experience Hendrix show in Cincy and saw her in a different light musically. Last night covered the spectrum for me as far as blues, jazz, and some pure funk goes. This band is incredible in many ways. Oteil seems to be having a blast playing alongside Kofi. I've never seen him so animated. Derek was having some sound problems early on and Susan just picked it up, and floored me with her leads. I honestly didn't know she could play like that. There was a setlist which really wasn't followed. 2 songs were deleted due to the improvisational jamming that took place which was fine by me. I saw some magic happening on that stage. Coolest part of it all was you could see the band having a blast with smiles on every face.

I know Susan can jam. I've seen her do it on a few utubes.

I saw TTB in Baltimore last year. There's alot of swing to their music. I like that.

Saw Susan in Annapolis also. I was a little disappointed she didn't really solo. Her voice sounded fantatsic though. It was a really good show. She's sweet. She did some orignal stuff that was real funky that I really liked.

There was no doubt about her soloing the other night. The rest of the band set it up and then even Derek walked outside of this circle they gave her. And even someone with zero musical knowedge could have figured out what was going on just from the rest of the band's reaction to what she was throwing down. Very special.

And you know what, this pic of Derek reacting to a riff played by Susan at their gig last night at their first-ever Merlefest belongs in this thread as well, for obvious reason;

All these comments reflect the opinion of the author. First, the highlight of the TTB at Merlefest was Susan's solo on that one tune and Mike's singing on the other ... The songs at the show (like the CD) were hard to distinquish one from the other. Susan's best performance of the day singing and playing was playing a couple of tunes during the Waybacks Hillside Album Hour where they performed Hendrix's "Are You Experienced" in it's entirety along with a couple of Dylan tunes thrown in for good measure.

Allow me to take this time and hip those of you to this band the Waybacks. They were incredible! I'm not that familiar with their own brand of music, but the musicanship this band displayed during this performance (and the two previous performances of which I've got copies one being last years' Eat A Peach performance) IS off the charts. James Nash on guitar IS the best kept secret going today!!! Oops I let it out! I will see this band again and look forward to seeing this band again and with great anticipation.

Now back to the TTB. With the exception of the ABB, the TTB maybe the most succesful band any of the musician's performing in the TTB have been in ... And I suppose with a Grammy under their belt for the first album, it could be argued as being THE most succesful band any of them have been in. However, it isn't my cup of tea. The TTB is the best band Susan has ever had. I can't say the same thing about the others. I do hope the band is super financially successful so that some of the individual members are able to persue their OTHER interests.

I've said it before that if I had to be with my wife 24 hrs at a time (Ain't that a MTB song?) one of us would be dead most likely me ... if she didn't kill me, I'd gladly blow my friggin' brains out. Similarly if I had Derek's talent and be regulated to a few fills here and there over some pseudo-blooze/funk/soul grooves, then that would be getting old pretty fast as well. I do wish them sucess and I have supported them financially as well, but ... in the future if I have a choice between the TTB and say ... Lady Gaga, I'd have to say I'd probably pick Lady Gaga. I have to believe it be more entertaining. Anybody think I'll make Esquire with this review?

And don't for get the Waybacks' Warren Hood on fiddle and mandolin. A wiz as well, and the son of the late long-time Texas musician Champ Hood.

www.mvradio.com/archives still has the shows that started this whole Waybacks Merlefest Hillside Album Hour jams online that you can stream and listen to.The first all-star Led Zep Hillside Album Hour from2008 here;

http://3447.voxcdn.com/927/play.php?queryWhere=id&queryValue=438

And the proto-Hillside Album Hour that sparked the idea from 2006,The Waybacks with special guests Bob Weir, Gillian Welch and David Rawlings and Sam Bush;

http://3447.voxcdn.com/927/play.php?queryWhere=id&queryValue=327

So Charlesinator, Merlefest has 14 stages - did you see any other bands that you enjoyed??

Derek it was my maiden voyage to Merlefest and it was SO intoxicating. There was so much to see and do that I couldn't do it all. I was only there Saturday. I saw like 14 different bands all of them good and so was TTB. It's just that I prefer Derek's playing in a different setting. Let's see ... I can't remember them all or in order ... I enjoyed the Punch Brothers although they did get out there farther than even I like it and Chris Thilie comes off as a diva. Would have loved to have heard a full set of Sarah Degas(sp?). She's a heck of a singer and easy on the eyes!!! I liked the Celtic stuff Sythian did. Love Claire Lynch. Great to finally see her live and she didn't disappoint. Gibson Brothers were great. Caught some Mitch Greenhill and Fruteland Jackson nice fingerpickin' blues.

Stuff I didn't see John Hammond or Tony Rice. I really wanted to see Tony Rice but was afraid I would make it to my seat for the Album Hour. I didn't make the dance tent, traditional tent, creekside stage, or any of the pickin' or autograph deals. It was just too much stuff that I can't get my head around it all yet.

Oh saw my boy Jim Lauderdale and dug him. Also Red June and others. It was an incredible experience and I had a great hook up almost as good as yours.

It is not easy to see all you want to see there because it truly is an embarrassment of riches. I always was try to see at least a couple songs by Tony Rice because he is a friend and because he is in my top four guitar legend-influences, the others Duane, BB King and Django (with huge mentions to everyone from Dickey to Toy to Eddie Hazel to Bryan Sutton to Segovia and on and on).And John Hammond by himself is sublime.

But you do have to think ahead and make choices and the Hillside Album Hour us just about having fun. I will say that some of the best things I've ever seen have happened at the Creekside stage and the Traditional tent. Scythian is just a good time -plain and simple. And yes, the Dance Tent is a sight to behold and a blast depending on what band is playing.

And yes, The Punch Brothers can orbit Saturn on occasion. All great musicians, however. Gabe is a friend (used to play for Jerry Douglas) and Noam is a trip.

Doc Watson?? Did you stay in a hotel or camp?? Jams??

Anyway, glad you broke the ice while Doc was still with us.
