Aural Pleasure Review

Tedeschi Trucks Band: 'Everybody's Talkin' (Live)'

Photo: , License: N/A

If 2012 Best Blues Album Grammy winner Revelator established the Tedeschi Trucks Band as a perfect combination of instrumental and vocal chops and smart songwriting, the live powerhouse Everybody's Talkin' is the TTB at large: an 11-track double CD with plenty of solos, extended versions, and a full representation of what they're all about. Derek Trucks (a veteran of the Allman Brothers Band and arguably the greatest slide guitarist of his generation) and wife Susan Tedeschi (a solid lead guitarist in her own right and an outstanding gospel, blues, and R&B vocalist) lead a band that's much more than a simple above-average blues ensemble — TTB is Sly Stone, Otis Redding, and James Brown all rolled into one. It is a funky, soulful, rocking bulldozer of an album with enough ammunition (and brains) to find space to breathe through well-placed psychedelic trips here and there. Whenever an artist launches or follows up their career with a live album, I immediately smell foul play. Not this time: this collection of live Revelator tracks and reinvented covers deserves to be out there, and now is the perfect time. Their debut is a must-have, but if you can only afford one TTB album get this one and you get the full monty.

★★★★ (out of 5 stars)
