by The Derek Trucks Band


The Derek Trucks Band is a six-piece group with a sixteen-year legacy of relentless touring; always believing in building the machine the old fashioned way: one fan at a time. Their concerts have evolved into consistent, rafter-raising events, filled with soulful jams and gospel-revival intensity, highlighted by Trucks's dazzling, daring guitar solos.

The group's new double-live album Roadsongs captures the DTB in their full, cathartic glory and promises to expand their audience and draw greater attention to the group -- and Trucks himself.

"I remember that second night in Chicago," recalls Trucks. "It was kind of a rare thing. We all came off the stage and, independently of one another, said 'That was great! If we ever do a live album, that was it right there.' " From the Label

Listeners who yearn for the Duane and Dickey era Allman Brothers or the original Marshall Tucker Band night find this set worth a listen. Although Derek Trucks is an Allman member, his band is more wide ranging. They mix in jazz, funk, and blues to create something different. Trucks is a talented guitarist who reminds me of Duane Allman but he lets the other band members have space to shine. This recording and the more recent Trucks-Tedeschi Band album Everybody’s Talkin’ show that Southern flavored rock still has some life in it when it is the hands of musicians who move beyond the genre’s limits.
