Biography

The Derek Trucks Band
Roadsongs

“I’m sitting on top of the world,” goes the age-old blues lyric -- and it’s a sentiment that perfectly applies to the career of the 30-year old Derek Trucks. With his cherry-red SG Gibson guitar in hand, a glass slide on his left ring finger, he enjoys a reputation that is blues-rock solid.

Derek Trucks is a remarkable, emerging improviser. He, with the support of a solid, capable band, is interpreting songs in a soulful, heart-felt way, delivering music with a distinctive sound and feel.

Watch him play, and you'll see a young man peacefully focused on reaching into the music. He doesn't waste an ounce of energy on posturing, wincing, or going through the choreographed paces too often seen in many of his contemporaries.

Reminiscent of the great East West era Paul Butterfield Band, featuring Mike Bloomfield and Elvin Bishop, this group, driven by Truck's passionate guitar, has updated the 60's to full-blown turn of the century fusion.

Get it, but don't get ripped off by people pretending it's a hard to find import. Go to the source - hittinthenote dot com - and pay the players.

This double-set CD is, in a word, fantastic. I am amazed and incredulous that it is only available either as an import or through the occasional vendor for over 25 bucks. This one should be on everyone's holiday want list! If you are familiar with Derek Trucks, this live set extends the jam and expands the fusion. Blistering guitar by young Derek hisself, plus the funk/jazz flute by Hofi Burbridge, new vocals by Mike Mattison, and the groove laid down by Yonrico Scott & Count M'Butu (and Todd Smallie on bass). A bit of Allmans old and new, jammin' like Gov't Mule, and throw some hot jazz in there (at times I heard shades of 70's Herbie Mann...ooo!), plus de funk (kind of a touch of Santana, too). It's just perfect. Not sure if you're in the mood for jazz or funk or blues or rock? No problem! Stick this in your player and get down-- or get up. You can do both, or either. Someone, somehow should make this more accessible and affordable. This ain't no commercial pop-crap; this is quality music. Derek Trucks is a genius. This is my choice for the best of the year. Find it, buy it, have fun, enjoy!

For fans of Trucks and The Allman Brothers this live recording needs no more recommendation, it is a great show and recording; familiar songs but done with enough variation to keep it interesting.

For the casual listener there is alot to recommend here as well. A killer tight (but loose) band playing their eclectic mix of southern rock-funk-jazz-blues with passion and playful virtuosity. There is no mistaking this band's sound, the funky groove and sinuous slide. This may not be a recording for all moods (Truck's tends to sound like he's working a large power tool when he gets warmed up), but it is great for what it is. (Look online at the Hittinthenote website to order more cheaply and easily)

This double live cd shows DTB at their finest. The band's singer, the recently added Mike Mattison, has a great voice and fits in perfectly, but the focus of the band is still on Trucks's amazing slide work. He is truly unlike any other player out there right now. This is a band that's not afraid to be creative and as a result they've done things that are truly unique. This album is an incredible bargain because it contains many new and unheard songs that you won't find on any DTB studio albums. Highlights are "Volunteered Slavery" "Feel So Bad" "Joyful Noise" and "So Close, So Far Away", but all of the songs and improvisations are played with great energy and passion. Amazing music.

This is very good in every aspect. A nice performance, good song selection and excellent sound quality. It is a 2 disc set and just at 2 hours long. The tracks are 5 to 15 minutes long.

I think the music on this CD rates between four and five stars. I am giving it 5 stars because of the excellent sound quality, mix and editing. It has a great dynamic range, with a mix that rivals a studio recording. Plus, the audience noise has been kept to a minimum. This is a real treat comparing this to some recent live CD's by the Allman Brothers, Gov't Mule and especially Dave Matthews, which have poor sound and mix and has the audience cracked up over the level of the band in some places.

If you have any of the studio albums or have heard the Derek Trucks Band live before, there are no surprises on this album. Most of the songs come from the studio albums. They are played like the studio albums, only the songs are stretched out more.

These are very good performances by excellent musicians. The music is entertaining and interesting throughout. If you like anything by Derek Trucks, you are sure to love this CD.

If you have trouble ordering this CD, you might want to try going directly to the Derek Truck's site, or Sony Music.

UPDATE: MANY OF THE SONGS ON THIS LIVE SET ARE ON THE NEWLY RELEASED STUDIO ALBUM, SONGLINES.
