CD Review: The Tedeschi Trucks Band Continue Their Climb With "Let Me Get By"

The husband and wife duo of Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks have done a masterful job filling the void in the southern jamband community left by the retirement of The Allman Brothers Band. They have released three albums since beginning five years ago and their latest album titled "Let Me Get By" features their strongest set of songs yet.
The new ten-song album begins with the Allman Brothers Band-clone, "Anyhow" as Susan's vocals become the highlight of the entire album. Guitarist Derek Trucks definitely makes his presence known, when necessary with his outstanding slide guitar in "Laugh About It." The band gets funky with the swamp-blues of "Don't Know What It Means" and brings together a Dixieland jazz approach to "Right On Time." Susan continues to amaze with her wonderful talents as she belts out the vocals for "Let Me Get By" and leads the choir during the congregation of "Just As Strange," before bringing down the intensity for the laid-back, southern groove of "Hear Me." The album wraps up with the horn infused New Orleans flavor of "In Every Heart." 
The Tedeschi Trucks Band will be heading out on the road to promote that new album, beginning February 18th. For a complete list of tour dates and to find out more about their new album "Let Me Get By," please visit
