Jerry Douglas Joins Tedeschi Trucks Band At Red Rocks
The guest dobro player dropped in for a surprise collaboration.
Tedeschi Trucks Band welcomed dobro player Jerry Douglas to the stage last night for an extensive collaboration last night during their show at Red Rocks Amphitheatre. The concert was part of the Tedeschi Trucks Band’s Wheels Of Soul Tour that featured an opening set by Los Lobos.
Saturday’s concert was night two of a two-show run at the scenic outdoor venue near Denver. Tedeschi Trucks Band began their headlining set with staples “Anyhow” and “Made Up Mind.” The group led by guitarists Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi drew from their series of recently issued I Am The Moon mini-albums, serving up “Hear My Dear” from part one Crecent, followed by “Yes We Will” and the debut of “Emmaline” from part three, the just-released The Fall.
A cover of Derek & The Dominoes’ “Keep On Growing” kept the set going. TTB then brought out Douglas for his first sit-in of the night. The guest dobroist accompanied the band on “All the Love” from I Am the Moon: II. Ascension. The collaboration continued with a cover of Elmore James’ “Done Somebody Wrong.”
Trucks, Douglas, keyboardist Gabe Dixon, bassist Brandon Boone, drummers Tyler Greenwell and Isaac Eady and Los Lobos percussionist Alfredo Ortiz stayed onstage while the other members of TTB exited ahead of a performance of the lengthy instrumental “Pasaquan” from I Am The Moon: I. Crescent. The rest of the musicians returned for “So Long Savior” from Ascension featuring Eady on electric guitar.
Douglas left ahead of longtime setlist staple “Midnight In Harlem” and a cover of “That Did It.” The guest dobro player returned to augment TTB’s arrangement of John Prine’s “Angel From Montgomery” with the Grateful Dead’s “Sugaree.” Douglas then exited for a final time before TTB brought the set to an end by pairing “I Want More” with The Allman Brothers Band’s “Les Brers in A Minor.”
During their opening set, Los Lobos were joined by Tedeschi and Dixon on Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On,” and Trucks came out for The Allmans’ “Don’t Keep Me Wonderin’.” Trucks and TTB horn section also accompanied Los Lobos on “Mas y Mas.”
