I have to admit it
here on TGP
I was not a Tedeschi fan
I thought she sang fine
but was an average guitar huffer
wearing a dress
I saw them last year in floRIDA
and she was awesome
the whole band is one of the best
new and evolving acts on the road today
you got Derek in the band
that does not hurt
I listened to a few of their older albums which are available for streaming on Amazon Prime and I was not overly impressed, so I was not expecting much when I watched this Tiny Desk concert last night. Needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised and everything they played on this show was really good. I am going to have to reconsider my views about this band and check out the new album, from which these songs were taken.
My favorite clip from the internetz is this one ... maybe it's because Warren Haynes is channeling Joe Cocker and the pianist is channeling Leon Russell, but for me it sets a high bar for the band to live up to.
One thing I found interesting ... Susan's speaking voice sounds like she knows how to take care of her vocal cords ... it's very normal-sounding, not hoarse or raspy at all.
So far, Bill Frissel and Trey Anastasio have really owned what I come to expect from tiny desk. I'm sure the TTB video is great, I will watch it when I get kids to bed. But a big production is not necessary. Even the TTB big stage concert has some time of smaller ensemble stuff. It's all high quality.
