Tedeshchi Trucks Band release “roaring” concert film and live album ‘Live From The Fox Oakland’ today

Today marks the release of Tedeschi Trucks Band’s new concert film and live album ‘Live From The Fox Oakland,’ on Fantasy Records. Filmed and recorded in a single night on September 9th, 2016, ‘Live From The Fox Oakland’ provides an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at the touring juggernaut. Watch a performance of “Let Me Get By” from the film here via Rolling Stone who call the rendition “roaring,” praising Tedeschi’s and Trucks’ “exemplary live interplay.”: http://www.rollingstone.com/country/news/see-tedeschi-trucks-bands-roaring-live-let-me-get-by-w472563

‘Live From The Fox Oakland’ is the Grammy-winning band’s second live album and first ever concert film that American Songwriter calls, “the perfect way to absorb the impact of the Tedeschi Trucks Band firing on all cylinders in their natural habitat.” In addition to the 15 blistering 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.

As Trucks explains, “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 last fall.” What began as an eight-piece group has now expanded to an onstage lineup of twelve musicians who have mastered the emotional commitment and determined celebration of their music. Tedeschi adds, “The audience in Oakland was great and the band played with passion. I am thankful we captured this moment in time.”

‘Live From The Fox Oakland’ was mixed using a vintage Neve console to achieve an exquisitely immersive sound experience, and mastering guru Bob Ludwig added his craft to the full 5.1 surround sound mix and album audio. The film was produced and directed by Jesse Lauter (Bob Dylan In The 80s: Volume One) and Grant James (Father John Misty) with Trucks continuing in his role as producer on all music elements. ‘Live From The Fox Oakland’ is available in multiple formats including vinyl, DVD and Blu-ray.

“There aren’t many acts that can shift from riveting blues standards to soulful renditions of Leonard Cohen classics to digging deep into the catalogs of artists as disparate as the Beatles and Miles Davis, bringing their unique style and approach to each,” says the Chicago Tribune. The breadth of Tedeschi Trucks Band’s style is exemplified on ‘Live From The Fox Oakland’, which features set staples like Leonard Cohen’s “Bird on the Wire” and Bobby “Blue” Bland’s “I Pity the Fool,” two songs which feature the full range and power of Tedeschi’s vocals.

TTB’s touring profile – and renown – has grown year-over-year since the band’s inception in 2010. In 2016 they spent over 200 days on the road and the band started off strong in 2017 playing to packed houses including 3 night runs in each Chicago, Washington DC, and Nashville’s famed Ryman Auditorium. Summer will bring what is quickly becoming another annual TTB tradition, the third and biggest installment of their ‘Wheels of Soul’ tour, this year featuring support from Hot Tuna and the Wood Brothers.
