Tedeschi Trucks Band – “Liz Reed”

Luther Dickinson of the North Mississippi All Stars joined Derek Trucks and the Tedeschi Trucks Bands last night at the Beacon for a three-song encore, concluding with the Allman Brothers Band’s 1970 instrumental “In Memory of Elizabeth Reed.” Check it out below… video and photo above both by Marc Millman.

It’s an amazing testament to the genius of Dickey Betts and the original ABB that in 2016 no one has come close to topping their almost-50-year-old instrumentals! I think Derek needs to record a guitar album working with people like Luther Warren Haynes, Jimmy Herring… even Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock. I want to hear him keep stretching and being pushed and prodded by other alpha soloists. Enjoy!

    I LOVE TTB so please dont take this the wrong way, but, they tried to make too much out of something that was meant to be delicate… 15 people on stage couldnt do what 5 people originally did. Whenever i hear a cover song it makes me realize why the band that originally did it was famous…. By trying to live up to something that is bigger than them, they lost the jazz of the whole song and made it …jam.
    NEVER go on after Duane and Dickey 😛
