    Take a dose of Delta blues, add some Memphis soul, stir in sixties rock and seventies funk, and you have a hearty helping of the Tedeschi Trucks Band and their new album, "Revelator." Click on the link below to hear more:

    The band is the brainchild of husband and wife team of Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi who sat down with WBGO's Michael Bourne Friday afternoon to talk about their new album, a session at their home studio with Herbie Hancock, and their fall U.S. tour, which they kicked off at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center Friday night. "Revelator" features an eleven-piece powerhouse band with brothers Oteil Burbridge on bass, Kofi Burbridge on flute and keyboards and Maurice Brown on trumpet.
