I first heard Susan Tedeschi on our local "progressive rock" radio station back around the turn of the century. I was transfixed by her rich snarl...which she could produce with both her voice and her guitar.
During the first decade of this millennium, she and husband Derek Trucks fronted their own projects...with Derek also spending time in the Allman Brothers Band. Indeed, that's how they met. Susan opened for the Allmans on their '99 tour...and the rest, as they say, is history.
But, in 2010, they formed the Tedeschi Trucks Band. And, their onstage and musical chemistry produced something even more magical.
They played the Orpheum in Madison in the fall of 2015...and the entire smokin' concert is available on YouTube. If you've got AppleTV or another way to throw it on the big screen, treat yourself. Or, better yet, if you're near Chattanooga or Savanah this weekend, go see 'em.
If you don't have two hours...Click on the "Show More" tab under the video player and click to be transported to the sizzling "Break in the Road" at the 1:05:50 mark.
Oh, hell yeah.
I coulda picked several others from this show for this Music Friday. Which is your favorite?
