Default Derek Trucks

Why was the Derek Trucks band listed as world music? or are they still?
it seems to me they should be listed as Jazz and Blues. I'd say fusion but that seems a little redundant....

They would definitely get MY Blues vote. I think Eric Clapton's obsession with using him as one of HIS musicians, would give that opinion a little clout. Eric may have worked with some great Jazz musicians throughout his career, but he always loved to surround himself with other guitarists that felt the Blues. And Derek was one of his favorites.

I meant OF THE PEOPLE HE HAS PLAYED WITH. Unless he is going to play KISS, and come out of retirement every two years, Eric (himself) has said that his touring days are probably behind him. He will do his Crossroads festival, and the occasional show, but he may not be playing with Mr. Trucks again. So sorry if my wording was a little confusing. I know they are all alive. Except Elvis. He's dead, last I checked.

Default Derek Trucks

Well, there's no thread about Derek Trucks yet, so I thought I'd make one. This man's playing is simply amazing. He is without a doubt one of the most influential slide guitarists of this generation. His music combines so many unique elements and genres. Agree?

Totally! Trucks is not only inspired by blues artists, but also east indian Sarod players too. I believe his diversity adds alot to the nature of his sound. Another interesting tidbit is that he avoids using effects, he likes to just plug his guitar into the amp.

Personally I like his work with the Allman Brothers Band, espically seen live at Beacon Theater DVD. Check out Soulshine from that DVD, an amazing example of his soulful slide playing (Warren Haynes rocks too!).

I gotta agree 100% with you both. Derek is phenomenal, you can just tell when its him playing slide. It has its own "Voice" for lack of a better word.

Doesn't seem to be a lot of discussion about him on this forum. The guy was amazing from the beginning.
