Mind-blowing. And, please note- this from the world's greatest slide player, who never touches the slide in this song. Derek Trucks is a clear step forward for humankind.

Damn that video of The Storm was absolutely incredible. Felt like I was back in my dorm room in 1976. Perhaps something that the brothers could play at the Beacon but not sure how you could improve on perfection.

I think all that he is saying is the song is from the new TTB CD that came out in August. The performance is from the Royal Albert Hall. There is no new live release, it just reads funny from the headline.

Saw TTB late September and it struck me then how good Derek was without the slide. Well.....last night certainly confirms my perception doesn't it. My jaw just dropped while I was watching this video. Great vocal performance by Susan as well.

that's scary good. just on another level.

i wish susan didn't say anything after that and just let the moment hang. i remember dickey and jack really hit the note on blue sky one year at the beacon and no words were spoken afterwards. and the silence said measures.

Probably gonna get slammed for this, but I just don't understand how some in the community of this forum don't "get" or "appreciate" this band.

I wasn't old enough when the Allmans were in their prime to really understand what was going on, so maybe that's why I've connected so much with this music. It seems to be an extension of what the Allmans' created. Seeing this band grow and flourish is something I thought I'd never again be able to enjoy.

To me, Derek has taken the best elements of the Allman Brothers, and taken it up a notch. Their music seems to just flow and develop almost on a nightly basis. Dereks' inimitable playing, the Horns, the dual drummers, and Susan's voice, fronting this music, not really sure how you could improve on it.

Guess it's just a personal thing for me, but I sure am glad they've formed this band for us to enjoy.

Reuters take on the show...

quote:
Tedeschi Trucks Band serves London some funky medicine

By Alistair Smout
LONDON | Wed Oct 30, 2013 1:06pm GMT
(Reuters) - When Tedeschi Trucks Band took the stage at a packed Royal Albert Hall on Tuesday night, the rapturous applause they drew was not what might be expected for a U.S. group whose new album peaked at 52 in the British charts.

While they are far from a household name in Europe, the band is considered something of a supergroup in blues circles, and interest in their show at London's Bluesfest has been surpassed only by Led Zeppelin legend Robert Plant.

Formed by married couple Susan and Derek, they were last here in 2011 when they joined B.B. King on stage, but now they have returned with their 11-piece outfit to headline the venue in their own right.

"It's hard to travel with a band this big, but when you get the offer to play the Albert Hall... you make it happen," Derek Trucks, the band's founding guitarist, told Reuters in an interview before the gig at the 5,300-seat venue.

The couple are established artists in their own right. Trucks is a master of slide guitar, and considered the 16th greatest guitarist of all time by Rolling Stone magazine.

Aged 34, he is the youngest living player on the list, and has made the most of his prodigious talent - forming the Grammy award-winning Derek Trucks Band and joining the famed Allman Brothers' Band before his 21st birthday.

Trucks, indeed, is a nephew of Butch Trucks, a founding member and drummer of the Allman Brothers.

"He's the top player, as far as I'm concerned," said concertgoer Adam from Exeter. "He's got the feel, he's got everything."

For her part, Susan Tedeschi, lead vocalist and guitarist, had racked up five Grammy nominations herself before joining forces with her husband, nine years after they got married.

While Trucks admits that leaving their old bands behind was a risk, the gamble paid off. The band have performed at the White House, and are back with a second studio album, "Made Up Mind", after their first won a Grammy for Best Blues Album.

Tedeschi is especially proud of her recognition as a female blues singer. "How many women get to do what I do? There aren't many. You can name them," she said.

MANY INFLUENCES

Even at a Bluesfest gig, however, it is clear that the band draws on many influences other than the genre for which they won a Grammy.

Trucks soars, combining his signature Allman-inspired slide guitar licks with elements of jazz and Indian raga music, while a twin drum attack and horn section help to bring funk to the 19th-century auditorium. "We are all blues artists, but we're more versatile than just blues," Tedeschi said.

Her powerful voice drives the songs forward, but her playing is strong too, going toe-to-toe with Trucks in what they describe as a "guitargument" on "Misunderstood" and getting one of the biggest cheers of the evening for her solo on Elmore James's "The Sky is Crying".

"She's a very talented woman, a great singer and she can play a mean guitar as well," Donal, originally from Belfast, said.

The crowd is a mix of first-timers and old fans, and while the band enjoy reaching more people, their priority remains the music.

"We'd like a larger audience, but on our terms," Tedeschi said, voicing disillusionment with the popularity of some modern acts that use computers and recorded material on stage, at the expense of musicianship and live instrumentation.

"We have kids, and the stuff their friends are listening to, it's not healthy," Trucks said. "There's so much mediocre music out there, and you believe in what you're doing so much, that you want more people to hear it, because it's medicine. It's better than the other stuff we're being fed."

this performance is mind boggling for me for three reasons:
1 - technically, it is damn near impossible to play like this. how do you practice this??
2 - in the mind's eye, how is derek telling his body what to play? does he actually envision what it will sound like and then play it? or has his body taken over? i just don't get it
3 - when you're that deep in the music, how do you have the presence of mind to still lead the band, come out of the solo, go back in and then bring it to a halt?

wow. just wow.

What came to my mind as I watched this about five times is point number 2, only did he have one of the out-of-body experiences that does happen on rare occasions. When I interviewed Derek back in 2006 I asked other great musicians to throw some questions at him, and Jerry Douglas came up with the following, along with Derek's answer;

Me - There are a ton of other great musicians out there who appreciate your work, so I got the idea of asking a few of them to come up with a question or two for you. The response was immediate. First up is Dobro great Jerry Douglas. You appear on his latest album called Best Kept Secret, and he has long been a fan of yours. His question for you is- ďWhen your at your highest level of playing, when you canít do anything wrong and youíre almost standing off to the side and watching yourself play, what do you think about? Do you think about being airborne or gliding? Do you see any colors or landscapes? Do you hear the music of jazz or Indian Classical musicians like Nusrat Khan or Ali Akbar Khan?? What happens?

DT - "You know, itís weird. Thereís been times whereÖÖ I remember the first few times I really had that experience, where youíre almost watching yourself. It kind of freaks you out for a second and you end up kind of coming out of it. But then, the more it happens, you just seem to watch it more. Itís really a trip. Sometimes when you get done with a solo that happens like that, especially playing with somebody like Oteil where heís right there with you anywhere youíre going, even when you donít know where youíre going, but he seems to be right there following you, the solo is done and you almost exhale. Youíre kind of worn out from it, but in a really good way. Those are amazing experiences. That is what you look for. Sometimes you are hearing influences, whether it is a sarod player or a Pakistani vocalist or a great horn player. Sometimes youíll have images of influences that you have. Other times itís completely free of all that. Itís special when it does happen. It happens in waves, though. "

If I talk to him tomorrow night in Boone, NC, I will ask.

It's not conscious. The early stages of writing or learning a song might be conscious but the conscious mind is way, way too slow for what you're seeing there. It's a combination of muscle memory and instinct.

Tons and tons and tons of practice. That's all there is to it, I think.
