Catch the Tedeschi Trucks Band tonight, Monday, on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno!

As husband-wife couples go in the world of music, it is a challenge to find a duo as well-fitted and naturally prolific. Each has produced recordings that share a sensibility best described as a swampy mix of rootsy, rockin’ American music with blues, jazz and World influences. The two have guested on each other’s albums and have toured together intermittently. They often perform together with the Allman Brothers Band—with whom Trucks continues to play as co-lead guitarist. In fact, it was during an Allman Brothers tour in 1999 that the two first met.

Derek is the youngest player to make Rolling Stone’s "100 Greatest Guitarists of All-Time" list. In addition to his work with the Allmans, Trucks also found time to go on tour as a member of Eric Clapton’s band in 2006, and has played guitar on studio albums by the likes of Herbie Hancock, Buddy Guy, McCoy Tyner, Dr. John, and Susan Tedeschi. With his own group, The Derek Trucks Band, the 2009 release, Already Free, won a GRAMMY for Best Contemporary Blues Album.

Susan's powerful voice, commanding guitar playing and fearless stage presence have made her one of the most stirring soul and blues musicians of our time. She achieved an impressive musical and commercial breakthrough with her 1998 indie release Just Won’t Burn, which won Tedeschi a GRAMMY nomination for Best New Artist. Back To The River, Tedeschi's latest release, has earned widespread critical acclaim and yet another GRAMMY nomination, for Best Blues Album.
