The Derek Trucks Band: Roadsongs

Read "Roadsongs" reviewed by Doug Collette

A full-length extension of the previously issued EP, Already Live (Victor, 2009), and a more than worthy successor to Live At the Georgia Theatre (Sony Legacy, 2004), Roadsongs accurately summarizes the evolution of The Derek Trucks Band over its sixteen-year existence. Recorded at Chicago's Park West, the site of the group's concert DVD Songlines (Legacy, 2006), ...

The Derek Trucks Band: Already Live (EP)

Read "Already Live (EP)" reviewed by Doug Collette

Approximately forty minutes isn't nearly enough to capture the sensation of the Derek Trucks Band concert experience, but the five impeccably recorded tracks that comprise Already Live should be enough to placate the guitar hero-worshippers and other fans of the precocious wunderkind who find his recent studio work a bit too structured.

The Derek Trucks Band: Songlines

Read "Songlines" reviewed by Jim Santella

He's highly expressive, and yet everything he has to say through his guitar centers on the story at hand. He's not about flash and mesmerizing ...

The Derek Trucks Band: Songlines

Read "Songlines" reviewed by Doug Collette

Songlines will be a likely candidate for Best of 2006 lists in any number of genres--jazz, rock, jam band--and not just because it continues the eclectic course set by Derek Trucks since he began recording. (Covers included here range from Rahsaan Roland Kirk to Taj Mahal and Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.) This album completely captures the ...

The Derek Trucks Band: Live At The Georgia Theatre

Read "Live At The Georgia Theatre" reviewed by Doug Collette

But there’s nothing any more contrived about the sequence of events than there is simply the music itself. The release of the band's diverse major label debut, Joyful Noise , segued smoothly to the next year’s almost-all ...

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
