Product Description

After building successful solo careers, husband & wife team Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi join musical forces to create the Tedeschi Trucks Band. The Tedeschi Trucks Band is an eleven-member ensemble overflowing with talent and a shared musical vision. Their long-awaited, song-oriented debut album Revelator blends Delta blues, Memphis soul, ‘60s rock and ‘70s funk into an entirely original sound. In addition to the combined weight of Tedeschi and Trucks’s equally renowned abilities, Revelator benefits from an impressive circle of talent that the two brought together. Trucks co-produced the album with multi-Grammy®-winning engineer Jim Scott, whose genre-bending credits include popular albums by the Dixie Chicks, Johnny Cash and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

After reading the other reviews I wasn't going to bother, but I've been playing it all day and this record is so good. There is no filler - just music that hits your soul from beginning to end. I don't do track run downs but a couple get special mention, at least for today. It will be others tomorrow. 'Midnight in Harlem' should become a classic. I could listen to it forever and will never tire of it. Susan's voice is sublime on this, and Derek's playing as good as everything he does. And the rest of the band are no slouches. A fantastic ensemble piece. Then there's Learn How To Love. Really dirty guitar that put me in mind of Hound Dog Taylor at the start, then riffs Jimmy Page would only aspire to. I say that because you could imagine (well, I could) Led Zep having a crack at this, but Robert Plant would never reach into the soul like Susan Tedeschi does. But this is no guitar rock album. It's blues and rhythm and soul. Wonderful stuff.

This is the recording debut of the new, 11-piece band formed by slide guitarist Derek Trucks and blues singer Susan Tedeschi, who are also husband and wife. Both musicians have been fronting their own bands for over a decade and Trucks is also a member of The Allman Brothers Band, playing with his uncle, drummer Butch Trucks.
The band features a 3-piece horn section along with 3 backing vocalists and the photo of all 11 musicians lined up in the photo on the cover can seem a bit intimidating. So you may think of a new, big, soul-rock groups like Delaney & Bonnie and Friends and Joe Cocker's Mad Dogs & Englishmen, and expect "Revelator" to be a big, brassy, soul-shaking rave-up.
But that's not what we have here. The sound is much more restrained with the emphasis on songwriting and singer rather than jamming and shouting.
The album opens with "Come See About Me" (not The Supremes hit) and its mid-tempo funky, southern-fried groove sets the tone for what's to come.
Tedeschi's vocal style is similar to Bonnie Raitt's, but a touch grittier and Trucks' guitar-playing is straight out of the Duane Allman school of slide.
The horns section sounds a bit buried in the mix on the first two tracks but they get to shine later in the piece.
The album really kicks into gear with track three. "Midnight In Harlem" is a mellow, bluesy ballad, driven by Kofi Burbridge's beautiful Hammond B-3. Trucks' slide guitar joins in and Tedeschi lays down one of her finest vocal performances, restrained and emotive. This sounds like it could be the companion piece to Tony Joe White's "Rainy Night In Georgia".
"Bound For Glory" follows (again, not the Neil Young tune, they're all originals here), with a punchy horn chart, funky bass line and a great chorus.

Husband and wife combine forces and respective backing bands, creating a mammoth eleven piece musical conglomerate. It could have been a disaster. Happily, it's a triumph.

Susan Tedeschi's last solo album "Back To The River", with husband Derek Trucks guesting on a few tracks, provided some early clues as to how this collaboration might turn out, and it's safe to say that "Revelator" comfortably meets expectations.

What has characterised Trucks' career to date is his refusal to stand still or tread water, witness the remarkable journey he has made since his earliest instrumental world-music jam band outings. Far from the indolent family love-in that in other hands it could easily have turned into, this new album never seems anything other than a natural and logical progression.

The merger does wonders for Tedeschi too, a supremely expressive vocalist anyway, often referenced alongside the likes of Joplin, Raitt et al. Here she appears completely liberated, her voice at times soaring with raw power, at others with real tenderness. The synergy between the spouses is often breathtaking, never more so than on the album's standout track, the loping "Midnight In Harlem", a Mattison / Trucks collaboration that might just prove to be the loveliest new song you'll hear this year.

And spare a thought for Mike Mattison, relegated from lead vocalist in the DTB to backing singer in the expanded family firm having watched his boss promote the missus over him. Nepotism in the workplace; the bane of the working man's lot the whole world over. But, judged purely on results, there can be few objective complaints here.

Simply one of the best albums of any genre at any time. Quality songwriting, impeccable playing and lovely singing from Susan Tedeschi. The Derek Trucks Band are superb (check out their other albums - especially Songlines) but the inclusion of Susan Tedeschi really takes it to another level.
What really comes through is that this music is made out of the love for it and that makes it a pleasure to listen to and you actually feel good that they have taken the time and effort to make this amazing music.
Highly recommended whatever music you are normally into - this is from the heart and soul of those involved and it really shines through.
