Tedeschi Trucks Band Release “Made Up Mind” with Pino Palladino, Bakithi Kumalo and Others

Tedeschi Trucks Band: Made Up MindThe Tedeschi Trucks Band’s third full-length album, Made Up Mind hit the shelves this week. The follow up to their Grammy-winning 2011 debut, Revelator and their live album, Everybody’s Talkin’, TTB saw the return of some old routines and collaborators, and some new.

The most significant to us is the absence of original bassist and long-time collaborator Oteil Burbridge, who announced a break from the band and touring last October.

The husband and wife-led band decided not to replace Burbridge immediately, opting instead to bring in an all-star cast of bassists to help record the album. Pino Palladino is on five of the albums 11 tracks, along with Bakithi Kumalo (2 tracks), Dave Monsey (2 tracks) and George Reiff (1 track).

The group is heading out for a tour in support of the album in early September. Bassist Eric Krasno is reportedly going on tour with the group.

Check out the song “Part of Me”, from our previous coverage.

Made Up Mind is out now on CD, vinyl and digital formats (iTunes and Amazon MP3).
