It starts off with a relaxed soul vamp, over which peeks just the sly grin of buzzing slide guitar, then a tasty organ lick. She handles the beautiful melody in such a cool, unrushed manner, owning it but never pushing to hard. More uptempo numbers also score. The slide lick that links the tune together is irresistible, and the pulse set up by bassist Oteil Burbridge and twin drummers J. Johnson and Tyler Greenwell is rock solid.
Everything is in place on Revelator. While the single, "Midnight in Harlem," highlights the softer,side of the band with Tedeschi 's soulful croon and Trucks ' swooning slide, it's the harder numbers that fill out the story.
The sexy opener "Come See About Me," the bluesy, gospelized "Don't Let Me Slide" one of two cuts written by Trucks and Tedeschi with Jayhawk Gary Louris , the second-line funk-blues of "Bound for Glory" with its punchy horns; all of these offer evidence of the real depth that this band abundantly possesses. The Eastern modal tinge in Trucks ' playing and tablas dustinguishes "These Walls," tempered by the quiet conviction in the grain of Tedeschi's vocal would have made for a better single.
The nasty, funky, Hendrixian droning blues of "Learn How to Love" is textured by Kofi 's funky clavinet and Wurlitzer. Speaking of funk, Tedeschi takes her own smoking guitar break in "Love Has Something Else to Say," a slamming, break-ridden funk tune that quakes. It combines hard Southern Stax-styled rhythm, soul, blues, and nasty-ass rock.
Revelator is a roots record that sets a modern standard even as it draws its inspiration from the past. It's got everything a listener could want: grit, groove, raw, spiritual emotion, and expert-level musical truth.
Report abuse. After reading the other reviews I wasn't going to bother, but I've been playing it all day and this record is so good. There is no filler - just music that hits your soul from beginning to end.
I don't do track run downs but a couple get special mention, at least for today. It will be others tomorrow. I could listen to it forever and will never tire of it. Susan's voice is sublime on this, and Derek's playing as good as everything he does. And the rest of the band are no slouches. A fantastic ensemble piece. Then there's Learn How To Love.
Really dirty guitar that put me in mind of Hound Dog Taylor at the start, then riffs Jimmy Page would only aspire to. I say that because you could imagine well, I could Led Zep having a crack at this, but Robert Plant would never reach into the soul like Susan Tedeschi does. But this is no guitar rock album. It's blues and rhythm and soul.
Wonderful stuff. Brilliant fromstart to finish, every track excellent but Midnight in Harlem is the standout for me. Great playing and singing, Mike Mattison is the "unsung hero" here. Derek Trucks is probably one of the top 5 guitarists alive today. Torn between 4 and 5 stars for this review. Derek Trucks has made some fine albums check them out elsewhere on amazon and he has a superbly fluid style with the guitar. On this album the style moves on yet again - with some delicious interplay with Susan Tedeschi and the rest of the very fine band - and it deserves to be aa huge success.
The catch is that there is one obvious area for improvement, which is - at the risk of starting a domestic I have to agree with the reviewer who said that Susan Tedeschi's vocals are quite Sometimes this works eg the opener, come see about me and on some tracks she sings in a gentler more melodic style shelter, midnight in harlem.
But elsewhere - it grates. And it grates even more if you know DT's earlier albums, and you've heard the vocals on them Mike Mattison is the lead singer - very soulful and melodic.
You can hear him on harmony vocals on this CD too. If anyone from TTB is reading this - please please for the next album s , share the lead singing duties between Mike Mattison and Susan Tedeschi What other items do customers buy after viewing this item?
