The second studio album from the stellar Tedeschi Trucks Band is in the can and will be released August 20th, 2013. It is titled Made Up Mind. I genuinely love what this 11 piece ensemble delivers so I am eager to hear some initial cuts. I can see from their recent set lists these songs are being played live
All I can tell you now is what the news release states:
The product is an energetic, powerful album that is both timeless and characteristically difficult to classify.
I just placed my order for the CD. I was additionally incented to do so by the contest they are sponsoring. The Grand Prize for the pre-order contest (no purchase is necessary by the way, is a Gibson SG Special guitar signed by Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi, a VIP concert package including two tickets to a headline Tedeschi Trucks Band show, and a meet and greet with the band. (Love to win this prize…).
Second prize is a signed vinyl edition of Everybody’s Talkin’.
It just so happens that the songs Everybody’s Talkin’, Darlin’ Be Home Soon, That Did It, and Wade In the Water were recorded at our concert on October 29, 2011 @ The Klein in Bridgeport, CT.

This historic blues concert will be part of the “In Performance at the White House” series that airs on PBS. Tonight’s event is designed to recognize Black History Month and will be broadcast on Feb. 27 on PBS stations and aired later on American Forces Network.
You forget how good Johnny Winter is until you spin up his music. Then it hits you like a full force Texas tornado.
I had written awhile back that Johnny Winter was working on a new album in Stamford, Ct. Roots is the name of the Johnny Winter CD that was released on September 27th, 2011. I picked it up today on Apple iTunes and brought it down from iCloud to my iPhone sound system in the car.
It celebrates the blues icons who led the way for Winter. Plenty of great guest stars to appreciate as listed on the poster below.
Johnny Winter’s vocals are strong throughout especially when they are accented by his trademark growl. His guitarmanship is as phenomenal as ever. My early favorite tracks are “Bright Lights, Big City” which is a duet with Susan Tedeschi and “Dust My Broom” with her husband Derek Trucks.
My hat’s off to producer Paul Nelson who is doing great things for Johnny Winter’s career and for his long time fans.
What I am even more pleased about is that the concert tickets were $50 each for FTC members. Just last Friday Ridgefield Playhouse charged $127 each for the same seats to see Tedeschi Trucks Band live. We are saving $77 a ticket and did I also mention we’re getting two bands that night, Hey Now!
Thanks Fairfield Theater Company for charging the right price for us members. Keeping music affordable in these dire economic times speaks to your commitment to us the music buying public. We attend thirty+ concerts a year and appreciate a value when we see one!
This song gives me goosebumps and that eternal smile of a collective magic being performed in our midst. This video is part of the Eric Clapton Crossroads Guitar Festiva 2010l filmed live in Chicago on June 26th, 2010. Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks along with members of the later to become Tedeschi Trucks Band stretch out nicely on this selection.
Listening to the brand new CD Revelator by the Tedeschi Trucks Band which showed up a little while ago in my mail box. What a real treat this CD is to listen to;). The recording mix is top notch. The music selections are well stated and smartly chosen. I love the interplay between Derek Trucks and his wife, Susan Tedeschi. The telepathic connection of dixie-funk speaks warmly to the depth of their relationship which is intertwined with their genuine love of performing meaningful music together along with their fantastic band. The 11 member group percolates right along, accented by horns, keyboards, bass, backup singers and percussion.
Revelator will be getting extensive play on my music systems these next few weeks and well into the summer.
Strongly considering catching the Tedeschi Trucks Band Live at the Gathering of the Vibes Music Festival on Friday July 22nd in Bridgeport, Ct.
Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks with members of the Tedeschi Trucks Band have a new recording coming our way next month on June 7th. It’s entitled Revelator. This 11 person nucleus is a hard-working, well oiled band of musicians who have collaborated to make a rich wall of Southern sound.
I like the evolutionary direction Derek, Susan, and company are taking with Revelator. I’ve had the fortunate opportunity over the years to witness Susan Tedeschi with The Other Ones, Derek Trucks with The Allman Brothers Band, The Derek Trucks Band (2) and with Eric Clapton. My wife and I loved seeing Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks perform with Herbie Hancock for his 70th Birthday at Carnegie Hall last year.
Revelator was recorded in Derek and Susan’s own Swamp Raga Studios in Jacksonville, co-produced by Derek with producer/engineer Jim Scott (Johnny Cash, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Wilco).
In order to get a better idea of the Tedeschi Trucks Band, plug into their YouTube Channel and watch the videos about the making of Revelator. You will get a strong appreciation for what this 11 person ensemble is accomplishing!.
