Tedeschi Trucks Band : I Am The Moon : Part One Crescent : 2022
Please watch the video above for the full review
This is first installment of the four part concept album by The Tedeschi Trucks Band. I will admit I totally love this band. Their music is the perfect antidote for these troubled times. There is no hype, no theatrics, just the music. They are totally unique, the music just pours out of their collective hearts and can create sunshine on the dullest of days.
The concept behind I Am The Moon was suggested by TTB vocalist Mike Mattison in May 2020, two months after the band was forced off the road by the pandemic. The 12th century poem Layla & Majnun by Persian poet Nizami Ganjavi was the title inspiration for Eric Clapton’s 1970 double-LP with Derek and the Dominos, Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs.
