The Tedeschi Trucks Band is an piece ensemble made up of guitarist-vocalist Susan Tedeschi 's and guitarist Derek Trucks ' individual bands. Everybody's Talkin' , a double disc, is a live offering from that supporting tour. Produced by Trucks , it includes live versions of some album tracks and six beautifully chosen covers; all its tunes are given extended, imaginatively arranged treatments. On disc one, "Midnight in Harlem" is introduced by a mini raga played as a slide solo by Trucks. The band enters gradually, and Tedeschi 's soulful vocal carries them all the way in. Tedeschi is revealed, song after song -- far beyond her solo records or even Revelator -- to be among the truly great singers in modern blues and rock; by turns graceful and grainy, her expression reaches the spiritual in execution. At over 11 minutes, the interplay between guitarists, Mike Mattison 's backing vocals, keyboards, and rhythm section are impeccable. Things get rowdier on "Learn How to Love," with nasty guitar work by Tedeschi , and a burning tenor sax solo by Kebbi Williams. The horn section really pops in "Bound for Glory"; the exchange between the Burbridge brothers on bass and keys, with drummers Tyler Greenwell and J.

Sound quality and musicianship are remarkable and nothing has been faked — this piece band really is as good as it sounds! Slide guitar virtuoso and vocalist-guitarist, respectively, Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi are uncommonly eloquent…and are husband and wife. They and their nine colleagues all listen widely — on-stage and off it. Blues, soul and gospel are core here, but their music is also more than casually-informed by many other genres, including jazz, and even Indian classical traditions.
