The Beauty of Song, Part Three: Susan Tedeschi

Susan Tedeschi is one of rock and roll's present-day blue eyed soul sisters.

Much like Bonnie Raitt, Ms. Tedeschi has conjured up music mixing the blues and soul in a rock context.  Her solo albums have featured R&B and rock standards mixed in with her own compositions.  She's covered John Prine's "Angel of Montgomery," the Rolling Stones's "You Got the Silver," and the Four Tops' "Loving You Is Sweeter Than Ever."  Her solo albums include Better Days (her 1995 debut), 1998's Just Won't Burn, 2002's Wait for Me, and 2005's Hope and Desire.

In 2001 she married Allman Brothers Band slide guitarist Derek Trucks, and with his old band now disbanded, the couple now lead the Tedeschi Trucks Band. Their LPs include 2013's Made Up Mind, a seventies-Southern rock-style album with one killer of a title song.

That's it for my latest series of beautiful women in music.  For August, I have a month's worth of very special retrospectives.
