Tedeschi Trucks Band announce live album and concert film ‘Live From The Fox Oakland’


On March 17th, 2017 Tedeschi Trucks Band will release their second live album and first ever concert film, ‘Live From The Fox Oakland’ on Fantasy Records. Led by the husband-and-wife duo of guitar master Derek Trucks and singer-guitarist Susan Tedeschi, the 12-piece ensemble’s breathtaking live show is captured here over 15 blistering tracks. The film also features extensive behind the scenes footage, including Derek’s recent visit to Marc Maron’s garage for the WTF! Podcast (http://bit.ly/2jDCZAN), and an interview with Derek and Susan conducted by Rolling Stone critic David Fricke for SiriusXM Satellite Radio (Fricke also penned liner notes for the release).

Filmed and recorded in a single night, September 9th, 2016, at Oakland, CA’s gorgeous Fox Theater, the concert film and audio were mixed using a vintage Neve console to achieve an exquisitely immersive sound experience, and mastering guru Bob Ludwig added his craft to the full 5.1 surround sound mix and album audio. The film was produced and directed by Jesse Lauter (Bob Dylan In The 80s: Volume One) and Grant James (Father John Misty) with Trucks continuing in his role as producer on all music elements. ‘Live From The Fox Oakland’ will be released in multiple formats including vinyl, DVD and Blu-ray. The collection includes cuts from Tedeschi Trucks Band’s 2016 album ‘Let Me Get By’ as well as TTB’s own interpretations of Leonard Cohen’s “Bird on the Wire” and Bobby “Blue” Bland’s “I Pity the Fool,” two songs which feature the full range and power of Tedeschi’s vocals. On Derek and the Dominos’ “Keep On Growing” it’s Trucks’ guitar work that grabs the spotlight for a stunning extended solo. Watch the full 10-minute powerhouse performance here: https://youtu.be/h0kXfPrHHcw. In another memorable segment, sarod master Alam Khan joins TTB onstage for the first time on their original song “These Walls.” This genre-defying moment reveals TTB’s classical Indian influences and proves the 12-piece ensemble can drop their sound down to a whisper when it serves the song.

For a band that spends hundreds of days on the road a year, it was important to choose the right time for their second live album. As Trucks explains, “we’ve been wanting to properly document the progress of this band for a while and it really felt like we were hitting our stride and firing on all cylinders last fall.” Tedeschi adds, “it was special capturing the live performance from Oakland. The audience was great and the band played with passion. I am thankful we captured the band at this moment in time.”

Trucks and Tedeschi’s full commitment to making the best sounding live recording possible was evident from start to finish. “Our engineers Bobby Tis and Brian Speiser have been tweaking our recording setup on the road over the last year so we can really capture the sound of being in the room,” says Trucks. “The three of us spent countless hours in our studio after the recording to bring the tracks to life and make sure you can hear all the energy and nuances, which isn’t easy with a 12 piece band. We put a lot of work in to make sure the mixing/mastering was a notch above and I think our fans and music deserve the extra effort.”

Tedeschi Trucks Band will kick off a string of tour dates in February, including three consecutive nights at both Washington DC’s Warner Theater and Nashville’s storied Ryman Auditorium. The three night stands continue in June with a run at the Merriam Theater in Philadelphia. On July 1 they will launch their third annual Wheels of Soul tour, this year featuring like-minded roots-rockers The Wood Brothers and bonafide rock legends Hot Tuna. All tour dates for this burgeoning summer tradition are listed below.

‘Live From The Fox Oakland’ follows TTB’s 2016 studio album ‘Let Me Get By,’ (Fantasy) which earned praise from Rolling Stone, the Wall Street Journal, and the Associated Press, who called it “one of the great records of the year,” and opened at #15 on the Billboard 200, the group’s third album in a row to debut in the Top 20.
