Tedeschi Trucks Band - Revelator

Let's take Trucks, who is one of the best blues guitar players out there, and Tedeschi who has a beautiful voice and a talented guitar player and put this married couple on a fabulous release called Revelator. From the very first strum of the opening chords in "Come See About Me" to the lingering echoes of the final notes in "Shelter," Revelator stands as an exquisite anthology of musical delights, spanning the vast spectrum from soulful blues to infectious funk. Tedeschi's commanding and expansive voice captivates the listener, weaving a spellbinding narrative, while Trucks's extraordinary slide-guitar solos transport the audience into a realm of bluesy ecstasy.

Revelator also introduces the new, 11-piece ensemble - Tedeschi Trucks Band. And they do not disappoint. The high-octane blues-rockers "Bound for Glory" and "Learn How to Love" pulse with infectious energy, leaving listeners electrified. "Midnight in Harlem" shifts the mood, offering profound, introspective lyrics and soulful melodies that tug at the heartstrings.

The melodic journey continues with "These Walls," a poignant composition with a message of day-to-day resilience, and "Simple Things," a celebration of life's joys delivered by Tedeschi with unwavering passion.

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. Both Tedeschi and Trucks co-wrote the album's twelve new songs with an impressive list of experienced songwriters, including Jeff Trott, John Leventhal, David Ryan Harris, and Sonya Kitchell; Gary Louris and Oliver Wood of the Jayhawks and the Wood Brothers, respectively; and old friends like guitarists Doyle Bramhall II and Eric Krasno (of Soulive), and band members Mike Mattison, Kofi Burbridge and Oteil Burbridge.

Combining many great traditions such as Delta blues and Memphis soul, Sixties rock and Seventies funk, Revelator organically flows together, blending with an entirely original, modern sound. This compact disc has a crisp full sound and is a recommended addition to any music collection.

Released June 7, 2011.
