Listen To Full Audio From Tedeschi Trucks Band’s Perfectly Executed Three Night Orpheum Run

first_imgThe Tedeschi Trucks Band just came off an earth-shattering three-night run at Boston, MA’s Orpheum Theatre this past weekend, which witnessed the group continue to shine with plenty of that soul-blues rock that have made them one of the most powerful bands out there today. Led by the husband and wife duo of Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi, TTB is a sheer force to be reckoned with.The first night featured some choice covers, such as the George Harrison-penned Beatles track “Within You Without You” from Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, A majestic cover of Leonard Cohen‘s “Bird On a Wire,” and show closer of Joe Cocker‘s “Space Captain.” The group also brought out special guest guitarist Jorma Kaukonen of Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna fame on the blues standard “Key To The Highway.”On Friday night, the group continued to build on the night before. “Keep On Growing” brought the energy up early, as Tedeschi and backup singers Alecia Chakour and Mark Rivers beautifully complimented each other, while Trucks showcased those slide skills that have been handed down by a divine power. The Grateful Dead‘s “Sugaree” was placed in between an “Angel From Montgomery” sandwich, with Kofi Burbridge providing a little accent on the flute; he also showed a deft hand on organ and keys on a gospel-like “Bound For Glory.”For the Saturday night special, it was simply a culmination of the previous two nights. Tedeschi showed off those beautiful, gritty vocals on a cover of The Four Tops‘ “Loving You is Sweeter Than Ever,” and once again on “Midnight in Harlem” which came out of a spacey “Little Martha” interlude, which saw a nice lead from Kebbi Williams on sax. The group concluded the three-night stint with the Beatles’ “With a Little Help From My Friends,” but more akin to the Joe Cocker version.All in all, a perfectly executed run from the Tedeschi Trucks Band, a group clearly playing at the top of their game right now.
