Tedeschi Trucks Band: Laugh About It

Tedeschi Trucks recently released Let Me Get By, the first to feature bass monster Tim Lefebvre since he joined up nearly three years ago. The band killed it in the studio, but this clip from Austin City Limits goes to show they’re hitting their stride in live situations, too.

This clip of “Laugh About It” has all the right ingredients to get you grooving: gorgeous vocals, a tight band, and – of course – a perfectly-in-the-pocket bass line. The song started as a soundcheck jam, Lefebvre told us in our interview. “[Drummer] J.J. Johnson was playing a 7/4 groove and I started playing a riff over it. That’s one of my favorite tunes because it feels good to me. It’s in 7/4, but it doesn’t feel like it.”
