Tuesday releases

New Music Tuesdays and one of my favorite bands, The Derek Trucks Band, has debuted their new album Already Free.

I was fortunate to have seen these guys at Bonnaroo 2008, and seeing as how they rarely tour extensively, I felt extremely lucky to jam out and sway easily on Sunday (the last day of the festival) while the sun set behind vast Tennessee plains.

Some of my favorite tracks from older albums:

"Sarod", The Derek Trucks Band
"Sahib Teri Bandi/Maki Madni", Songlines
"Revolution", Songlines
"Mahjoun", Songlines
"This Sky", Songlines
"Joyful Noise", Joyful Noise

So excited!!  Already predicting new favs "Down In the Flood", "Sweet Inspiration", "Already Free", "Down Don't Bother Me", and "Our Love".  Trucks, a Florida native, performed with The Allman Brothers Band for over a decade, and has collaborated with his wife, Susan Tedeschi, on multiple occasions.  Trucks is notorious for making the guitar "sing".  That is the only way I know how to describe his music.  You can sing/hum/scat/sway/stamp/belt/skip to his eloquent rhythms, and it's more beautiful than a Phoenix's song.  Dig it.
