Tedeschi Trucks Band: Keswick Theatre 11/27-11/28

Tedeschi Trucks Band just dropped their second show in a legendary two-night stand at the historic Keswick Theatre in Glenside, PA.
This band is more that just the hottest husband wife duo in the country. They are much much more than that. The band features dynamite horns, a great rhythm section with George Porter Jr. on bass, two full drum sets, Kofi Burbridge on keys and flute, and Mike Mattison on background vocals. One thing’s for sure, this was not the Derek Trucks show; nor did Susan Tedeschi steal the show, although she can slay the guitar like the best of them. This is a big band that is as tight as a skirt on a hooker. They came to play. And play they did, taking us through some of their seasoned favorites as well as some classic covers. Their sound is a blend of cajun, soul, blues, r&b, and rock and roll. Most of the songs they played are on their most recent album, “Everybody’s Talkin'”.
One of the things I liked most about the Tedeschi Trucks Band is the fact that all of the respective artists know their place in the band. Not one outshines another. It’s pretty cool that in one of the standout tunes, the Stevie Wonder penned “Uptight (Everything’s Alright)” Derek Trucks does not even have a solo. Not that I don’t love his guitar playing and think his slide guitar work is second to none, it just shows that they put the sound first. If it feels good, play it. Sometimes less is more. I’m a big fan of low and slow and both Susan and Derek can be great even when they are playing at their quietest. Then they build the jam.
It’s great to see a band hittin’ the note  like the Tedeschi Trucks Band did these last two nights.
