Tedeschi Trucks Band’s Live from the Fox Oakland

Tedeschi Trucks Band will release their second live album and first concert film, Live From the Fox Oakland, on March 17 on Fantasy Records. Led by the husband-and-wife duo of guitarist Derek Trucks and singer-guitarist Susan Tedeschi, the 12-piece ensemble’s live show is captured here over 15 tracks. The film also features extensive behind-the-scenes footage, including Derek’s recent visit to Marc Maron’s garage for the WTF! Podcast, 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 9, 2016, at Oakland, California’s Fox Theater, the concert film and audio were mixed using a vintage Neve console, and Bob Ludwig mastered the recording to the full 5.1 surround sound mix and album audio. The film was produced and directed by Jesse Lauter and Grant James, 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 2-CD/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,” featuring Tedeschi’s vocals. Also covered is Derek and the Dominos’ “Keep On Growing.” Watch the full 10-minute powerhouse performance below.

In another segment, sarod master Alam Khan joins TTB onstage for the first time on their original song “These Walls.”

Said Trucks in a press release, “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 added, “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.”

“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,” aded 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.”
