Tedeschi Trucks Band: “Keep On Growing” and “Midnight in Harlem”

Two from a NPR Tiny Desktop Concert recorded this year. I haven’t follow the band closely and was surprised at how jazzy they get. Great musicians.

Here is more on The Tedeschi Trucks Band:

The Tedeschi Trucks Band was founded in 2010 after both Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi put their solo bands on hiatus to form a new group that lets the married couple focus on making music together, and allows them to spend more time together while touring and recording.[1] Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi had toured together in 2007, under the name Derek Trucks & Susan Tedeschi’s Soul Stew Revival; this group’s material was largely culled from Derek and Susan’s solo projects, while the Tedeschi Trucks Band mostly focuses on performing original songs.

Reading Music

The stories of the great bands and musicians are fascinating. Musicians as a group are brilliant, but often troubled. The combination of creativity and drama makes for great reading.

Here are some books to check out.

Duke Ellington brought class, sophistication and style to jazz which, until that point, was proudly unpolished and raucous. His story is profound. The author, Terry Teachout, also wrote "Pops," the acclaimed bio of Louis Armstrong. Click here or on the image.

The Grateful Dead don't get enough credit for the profound nature of its lyrics. Many of the band's songs are driven by a deep and literate Americana ("I'm Uncle Sam/That's who I am/Been hidin' out/In a rock and roll band" and "Majordomo Billy Bojangles/Sit down and have a drink with me/What's this about Alabama/Keeps comin' back to me?").
