On a night off during Tedeschi Trucks Band’s 2015 Europe tour, fellow bandmates Tim Lefebvre (bass), Kebbi Williams (sax), JJ Johnson (drums), and Tyler “Falcon” Greenwell (drums) convened at the intimate A-Trane in Berlin for a special one-off evening of improvised music. The audio from this special evening made it onto a special recording, dubbed Whose Hat Is This? The record documents this historic night with selected tracks from the group’s electrifying set of free jazz and fearless exploration, and you can listen to it here.
With Tedeschi Trucks Band’s residency at the Beacon Theatre starting this week in New York City, the players have scheduled a pair of Whose Hat Is This? shows at the 55 Bar. Tonight and tomorrow, Whose Hat Is This? will perform two sets of improv at the small venue at 10PM with vocalist Jeff Taylor. On Thursday, vocalist Jason Lindner will join the scene. Seating will be extremely limited at the shows, so come early and be prepared for some deep space musical exploration. More information can be found here.
