Tedeschi Trucks Band: High & Mighty (Tokyo Travelogue)
I’m such a huge fan of The Tedeschi Trucks Band. So it is always exciting to see a new video from the band.
“This clip connects behind-the-scenes footage during the band’s 3-night run at the Tokyo Dome City Hall on the Signs 2019 world tour this past spring with the studio version of ‘High & Mighty,'” the band shared.
“High & Mighty” appears on the 4-song High & Mighty EP, which released on September 27th. The EP was previously available only as a Record Store Day special edition 12” vinyl.
The band added this description of the EP, saying it “contains three tracks from the Signs recording sessions that did not appear on the album, along with an inspired live version of one of Signs’ standout songs, ‘Shame,’ that was recorded at the Chicago Theater in January, 2018. Previously unreleased tracks include two new original songs: ‘High & Mighty’ written by Derek Trucks and longtime collaborator Doyle Bramhall II, and the unique waltz-tempoed ‘All You Can Do’ from TTB’s own talented songwriter, Mike Mattison. Also previously unreleased is the band’s take on Scott Boyer’s beautiful ballad ‘All My Friends,’ which Gregg Allman recorded and released on his 1973 debut solo album, Laid Back. The loss of Allman, as well as TTB mentors Butch Trucks, Colonel Bruce Hampton, Leon Russell and Boyer himself, influenced much of the band’s songwriting during the recording of Signs and inspired the band to cover ‘All My Friends’ in their memory.”
Bassist Brandon Boone performs with the band in this video, while Tim Lefebvre performed on the original recording.
