Tedeschi Trucks Band will release its third album, “Made Up Mind,” on Aug. 20, and below you can stream and download one of its songs, “Part of Me.”
Co-produced by Jim Scott (Johnny Cash, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Wilco) and Derek Trucks, “Made Up Mind” was recorded in the band’s home base of Jacksonville at Derek and Susan Tedeschi’s Swamp Raga Studios.
In addition to the husband-wife team at its helm, the Tedeschi Trucks Band also features Kofi Burbridge (keyboards, flute), Tyler Greenwell (drums, percussion), J.J. Johnson (drums, percussion), Kebbi Williams (saxophone), Maurice Brown (trumpet), Saunders Sermons (trombone & vocals), Mike Mattison (harmony vocals) and Mark Rivers (harmony vocals). This is the band’s first recording since the departure of bassist and Trucks’ Allman Brothers Band cohort Oteil Burbridge. Rather than replace him immediately, the group has utilized the services of several bass players on the album (Pino Palladino, Bakithi Kumalo, George Reiff and Dave Monsey), and has been rotating bassists at their gigs as well.
