The Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi Band
I am looking forward to the Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi Band (ttb?). This will be a fun little trip.
We may see them in places like “The View” or sitting down w/Larry King. They may talk intimately about the music they play and their family. They also will play shows with new originals (I think the real reason for this is to use the shed they built in the yard ) and learn to see where they can go together as musicians.
I am all for it.
This is going to expose the mainstream to some quality music and living. I guess we’re ready to share now.
This band will spawn creativity. There will be more allowances of failure. If you see a dTb show, you may not see a mistake in the whole set. It is startling. That is Derek left alone. He feels very responsible for what is going on when his name is on the ticket (by itself). He does not want you leaving the show going, “Did you see Derek miss that note or did you see Mike miss that verse?” Derek does not want to afford you that opportunity. He’d rather sacrifice a little on the exploration for the perfection. Much appreciated.
However, get him around Jimmy and he detunes and starts asking for the mic. Why? Because, Jimmy knows him inside and out and he respects Jimmy on the same instrument he plays. There is no need to impress. Jimmy knows the deal.
Enter Susan Tedeschi. Enough said.
