Derek Trucks is an American guitarist (fantastic, amazing, one of the best.....), bandleader (The Derek Trucks Band), and member of The Allman Brothers Band.


"The Derek Trucks Band" (1997)

Derek Trucks is the nephew of Butch Trucks, the founding drummer of the Allman Brothers Band, and the younger man has been imitating Duane Allman's slide guitar ever since he started gigging as an 11-year-old. Now at age 18, he leads his own jazz-rock quartet through its debut album, The Derek Trucks Band. Jazz producer John Snyder convinced the teenage guitarist to include compositions by John Coltrane, Miles Davis, and Wayne Shorter alongside the seven originals on this mostly instrumental project. Trucks's band is able to set its amplified instruments to a crisp swing, and the leader proves himself fast and agile on the guitar, but neither he nor keyboardist Bill McKay are able to come up with solos as melodically captivating as those of the Allman Brothers Band or as harmonically startling as those of the Coltrane and Davis groups. But, at 18, Trucks still has plenty of time to evolve.

"Out Of The Madness" (1998)

Image Hosted by 128

How many teenaged guitar prodigies can get away with playing genre-blending improvisational music and convincing blues on only their second album? Just one: Jacksonville's Derek Trucks. His musical imagination is exceeded only by his guitar prowess. Trucks, who favors slide guitar, reanimates the blues past here. On Son House's "Preachin' Blues" and Howlin' Wolf's "44," he effortlessly attains an edgy, electrifying air of tension epitomizing the honest-sounding modern blues that many others attempt so hard--and so clumsily--to achieve. Just as impressive is Truck's ongoing exploration of the transcendent jazz/rock/blues realm where guitar-packing elders like Jeff Beck, Duane Allman, Carlos Santana, and Ronnie Earl, among a few more, have dared to go--the instrumentals "Younk Funk," "Kickin' Back," "Pleasant Gardens," and "Spillway." Unlike countless other guitarists, Trucks knows better than to sully his material by singing when he can't, and he turns to Warren Haynes (of Gov't. Mule), Larry McCray, and Matt Tutor to handle the vocal chores. It's little-known Memphis resident Tutor who really pours heart and soul into songs--hear "Preachin' Blues" and "Alright." All in all, this is a strong blues-and-beyond album. Keep an eye on this Trucks kid.

"Joyful Noise (2002)"

Image Hosted by 192

The third album from guitar phenom Derek Trucks resounds with joyful noise indeed, and amazingly, it seems as though Trucks and his band run through (at least) 10 distinct genres across these 10 songs. Trucks may venture all over the musical map--blues, soul, jazz, Eastern music, to name a few stops--but he does so with a confidence and assertiveness usually found in much older musicians. Then again, he is the nephew of Butch Trucks (a fellow member of the Allman Brothers Band, Trucks's moonlighting gig) and is married to fellow guitar wiz Susan Tedeschi (who guests on this album), so it's not surprising that he seems experienced beyond his years. Joyful Noise features a host of guest artists--including Qawwali singer Rahat Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and soul legend Solomon Burke--but despite the considerable variety here, the album maintains a unified, if high-flying and eclectic, vision. Even at such a young age, Trucks already plays with skill, invention, and heart.

"Soul Serenade" (2003)

It would be wrong to pigeonhole Derek Trucks as a southern rocker despite his ongoing day gig as the Allman Brothers Band's second guitarist. On his fourth solo album (actually recorded before his third, 2002's Joyful Noise) the young slinger shows what he's made of, and it's not barbeque and bourbon. Instead Trucks caters more to the martini crowd, giving a sophisticated cast to his slide guitar, snaking it into elegant musical conversations with a rather frivolous flute, and some off time drumming that are reminiscent of the clean jazz fusion that Traffic used to conjure up. On the opening track, "Soul Serenade"/"Rasta Man Chant," Trucks inserts some of the languid licks and flirts with Miles Davis before devolving into Bob Marley. "Bock to Bock" is a more structured affair that recalls Henry Mancini. Gregg Allman sits in on "Drown in My Own Tears" and spits out the bitter words in his grizzled voice while Truck follows along in a perfect slow dance, punctuating each of the singer's phrases with his own mournful slide. Trucks ventures south of the border in "Afro Romp" and the band evokes the great jazz drummer Elvin Jones on "Elvin."
