Revelator – Tedeschi Trucks Band


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!.

      1. I started getting into Western Swing in about 1975 when rock died for me and went disco and metal. All I had left to listen to was the Alman Bros. so they linked me to country and Merle Haggard opened the door to Bob Wills. I named my younger son Kenneth “Wills” AKA Will born 1981, he plays a great blues guitar and is good friends with Tommy Shannon of Double Trouble. Will has bootlegs of every SRV concert available. He was a real genius and one of the greatest improvizationalist of any genre.
