The Tedeschi/Trucks Band @ Olympia, Paris - April 28, 2014

At the risk of sounding hyperbolic, Derek Trucks is the greatest rock guitarist of the pat twenty years. And the band he and his wife have formed by fusing their bands together plays the most beautiful music ever created: a fusion of rock, soul, blues and jazz in the style of great seventies bands like the Allman Brothers Band, Santana, Blood Sweat & Tears, Derek & the Dominos, Mad Dogs & Englishmen...

Everything about this twelve-piece band is perfect. The playing and singing are superb, the songs are poignant, the sound is pristine... This is vintage but without a hint of nostalgia. Virtuosity without acrobatics. This is essential.
