Tedeschi Trucks Band headed to Nashville on Thursday night for their first of three performances this weekend at the storied Ryman Auditorium.
The Derek Trucks– and Susan Tedeschi-led 12-piece kicked off the run with a rendition of Marvin Gaye‘s “Baby Don’t You Do It”. Short and sweet runs through “Do I Look Worried”, “Right On Time”, and vocalist Mike Mattison‘s solo number “Life Is Crazy” followed from there.
Derek and the Dominos‘ “Why Does Love Got to Be So Sad” saw the band stretch their legs for the first extended jam of the night before moving into a string of originals in “Until You Remember”, “Laugh About It”, and “Let Me Get By”. Next, the band broke out a cover of George Jones‘ “Color of the Blues” for the first time this year before slipping into Allen Toussaint‘s “Get Out of My Live, Woman”. From there, they rounded out the set with “Hard Case”, “Shame”, and a “Bound For Glory” featuring a beautiful “Amazing Grace” intro. After briefly clearing the stage, the band returned to cap the performance with a two-song encore of “Statesboro Blues” and “Made Up Mind”.
