The sound engineering just wasn't that good. It was probably good enough for Austin City Limits going out on television bandwidth but did not have the presence of her well-engineered CD's.
Her band-mates really enhanced the show by doing a lot more than just playing music, they really did put on a show.
If the sound had been more present I would have given Susan the fifth star.
Anybody with any familiarity with Tedeschi knows that her greatest asset is her voice. She has "pipes" that are the equal of Joss Stone's, or Beth Hart's, or anybody else working in a blues/r&b vein. She can handle almost any material with ease.
This set on "Live From Austin" shows her versatility, as she tackles funk ("You Can Make it if You Try"), folk ("Don't Think Twice"), blues, torch songs and rock and roll. The diverse material is particularly suited for (then) band member Jason Crosby, who contributes some tasty violin to "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright", and "Angel From Montgomery", as well as underscoring some of the funkier offerings with electric piano.
"Live From Austin" is a pleasing mix of Tedeschi's different styles. She is a very competent guitarist, but I share the opinion of another reviewer in that I think she could benefit from the addition of a second guitarist. This would free her up to concentrate more on her vocals and showmanship. On this dvd (and when I saw her this year), she relied on her flamboyant organist Wllliam Green to get the crowd going. With players like Green in tow, Susan will always provide a good to great show. All she needs to do is go further with what she began with at the time of this dvd's creation--- pump up the funk, maybe record with a horn section, keep covering the great old tunes along with her originals.
In summary: this dvd portrays a solid but shy performer with great vocal chops and good instincts for well chosen tunes to cover. It's a good dvd, but it should pale next to what she does in the future...if she makes the right choices.
