Delaney & Bonnie...Kinda

The husband and wife team of Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi will no doubt draw comparisons to Delaney & Bonnie, and that's okay. They pull it off nicely.

I had a special interest in this show thanks to the addition of Maurice Brown on trumpet. He may be a buddy, but even if he wasn't, his trumpet adds more than just color to this sweet, soulful and often hot set of music.

I rarely post full sets this early in the week, especially on Tuesday. But I found this week's new releases doing nothing for me, while this live set has been on repeat for most of the weekend. Recorded on 12/29/10 at the Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater, Florida, check out Derek & Susan & Maurice.

What about new release Tuesday & the release of Hayes Carll's " Kmag Yoyo " ?
This release is not one to ignore, even if it does come out of Austin....

Another comparison that I can think of is that they're both privileged white folks playing music being passed off as "authentic R&B"...

So, if you have money or a good life, or happiness, or WHITE, you're not allowed to appreciate, play or enjoy "authentic R&B?"
