Tedeschi Trucks Band finished their three-night stand at the Orpheum Theater - their last three dates of the year. Plenty of ABB tunes throughout the run:
"Ain't Wastin' Time No More" with Luther Dickinson from North Mississippi Allstars - https://jam.buzz/watch-tedeschi-trucks-band-luther-dickinson-shred-aint-was
Awesome guitar solo from Derek on "Whipping Post" - https://jam.buzz/watch-tedeschi-trucks-band-smokin-whipping-post-boston-fin

I was there last night. Really great show from start to finish. Susan showed some chops, and her singing was enjoyable, sometimes she's not my favorite, but last night she was on fire. Kofi was great. Lots of room for him to shine and he did.
Derek has become a superb band leader, and his playing is ,well you know.
I've always been just ok with this band, but last night made me wake up and take notice of what a great live band this has become.

Went Friday and Saturday
Friday was very, very good, especially set 2. Neil Youngís Alabama was a timely cover. Will the Circle felt like Church. New tune Shame is great. Just nasty. I Wish started with a fusion jazz jam and ended with a huge party on stage. Encore started with Petty tune You donít know what itís like, the Donít Know what it Means with a Liz Reed jam. No comment needed
Last night was just off the charts. Derek was totally on fire from the get go. Heís the spiritual child of Duane and Jimi. Energy was amazing. Shelter was a real treat, a sentimental favorite. Statesboro, Storm > WP. Blown away, totally

nice, I'll check these out later.
went Thursday night. been a fan of TTB since they started & love Susan.
thought Thursday was one of my favorite Derek shows with TTB I've seen. big tone setting Do I Look Worried jam in the second song of the night.
Aint Wastin Time No More with Luther was a huge treat. That one eluded me in my ABB career so I soaked up every minute of it.
at one point a few years ago, I thought TTB tried too hard to satisfy every corner of their fanbase during every song: Susan belting, Derek's solos felt required instead of natural, weird jazzy keyboard excursions - but I felt none of that on Thursday. Every improvised moment came about as part of the song, and the interplay between musicians drove jams ahead, or ended them, as they should have.
band continues to get better. loved it. wish I could have gone fri or sat!
