Tedeschi Trucks Band at Red Rocks

The chief soloist, of course, was Trucks, who continues to possess one of the most distinctive voices on the scene today. His slide playing was like no other, often sounding uncannily human. Tedeschi, was no slouch, however. It takes a fair bit of guts to walk onstage with a guitar and stand next to Trucks, but she proved that she belonged right there and could hold her own; certainly, her opening solo of the night made that statement. But it was the very last song of the show, Freddie King's "Palace of the Blues," that found Tedeschi going literally toe to toe with Trucks, as the two traded lick after lick in a friendly yet serious marital competition. It should be noted, however, that these two have a mixed marriage: he plays a Gibson; she, a Fender.
