    Regarding Tedeschi Trucks Band’s release this Friday of “Signs”, I’ve heard it and can assure you and your readers that the Allman Brothers influence is less evident on this release than you may be suggesting. The realization of the band’s talent, all-star vocal strength (4 singers deep), horns and well placed string arrangements make this their most complete portrait to date. The warmth of recording to analog two inch tape, the pain of several close friends in their lives passing (Leon Russell, Col. Bruce Hampton and Allman Brother’s drummer Butch Trucks (Derek’s Uncle) has brought their blues and soul sound front in the mix. There’s a sorrow and a resolve to this record not in their previous releases. “Still Your Mind”, “Shame” and “Strength Remains” all jump out. Maybe Iman will let me submit a proper review following this. Enjoy.
