Tedeschi Trucks Band's "Everybody's Talkin'' Out Now



Submitted by Tijuana Gift Shop on Wed, 05/23/2012 - 11:06 am

Tedeschi Trucks Band released Everybody's Talkin' this week, their sophomore album in their second full year as a band.  The uplifting, energy-packed double-disc set by the 11-piece ensemble led by husband-wife team Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi that recently marked their first anniversary with a Grammy win for their debut album Revelator.

Kurt B. Reighley of MSN Music lauds, “From the opening moments of the Fred Neil title tune, ripe with warm brass and sweet vocal harmonies, the group's passion for performing together resonates loud and clear, and the extended song forms accommodate plenty of virtuoso instrumental turns -- even the flute solos rock!”

Billy Heller of the NY Post notes, “Over guitar, horns, organ and percussion from the 11-piece band, Tedeschi even makes the between-verse “wah, wah, wah, wah, wah” her own.”  This of course takes a different approach than Iggy Pop’s recent version of “Everybody's Talkin.”

Mike McGuirk of Rhapsody calls TTB, "about the best rock band working in the post-millennial era" and Enrique Lopetegui of the San Antonio Current confirms, “TTB is Sly Stone, Otis Redding, and James Brown all rolled into one.”

Spinner is currently hosting a Listening Party for the album and you can read more at the MSN Music feature.  Then head over to pick up a copy from any of these online outlets.
Tedeschi Trucks Band just posted a video for the title track on their website and you can also grab a free download of "Learn How To Love" when you sign up for the newetter..
Besides the Grammy for Best Blues Album of the Year in February, Trucks himself, along with TTB bandmate Oteil Burbridge, were honored with a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award for their membership in The Allman Brothers Band. In March, Tedeschi and Trucks were invited to perform at the White House with B.B, King, Buddy Guy, and yes, President Barack Obama himself (who sang a verse of “Sweet Home Chicago”). A week later, they appeared at the Apollo Theater, joining Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, and a host of guitar heavyweights in an all-star tribute to bluesman Hubert Sumlin.  On April 30th Tedeschi and Trucks will perform at the United Nations General Assembly in New York at a concert to celebrate International Jazz Day. Other featured performers include: Herbie Hancock, Esperanza Spalding, Wynton Marsalis and others.
The Tedeschi Trucks band is on the road all summer hitting festivals and theaters as well as a special run of performances with the legendary B.B. King.  More info and a full list of tour dates can be found here.
