TEDESCHI TRUCKS BAND
7:30 p.m. Robinson Center Music Hall. $35-$67.
The Tedeschi Trucks Band seems like a natural outlet for renowned blues artists (and married couple) Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks. The band's debut album, 2011's "Revelator," has a warm, classic '60s/'70s sound and a soulfulness absent from a lot of trad blues acts.
Of course, it doesn't hurt when your band is stacked with nine other straight-up badasses, though. Oteil Burbridge (who, along with Trucks, also plays in The Allman Brothers Band) is one of the finest bass players around.
As Allmusic's Thom Jurek wrote, "Revelator" "showcases Tedeschi as one of the finest vocal stylists in roots music, and Trucks has become the only true heir of Duane Allman's bell-like slide guitar tone, his taste and restraint."
