Made Up Mind
When Tedeschi Trucks Band emerged in 2010, Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks were keen to point out to interviewers that it would take substantial touring for their new experiment to come into its own. Well, that must have happened, because Made Up Mind is a fully formed vision of modern Southern rock, one swirling in richly textured hues of gospel, folk and blues. With the ensemble now fully gelled, Tedeschi feels comfortable enough to unleash the full weight of her raspy, robust voice. Highlights are plentiful, but "The Storm" and "Whiskey Legs" really know how to get their funk on.
