Tedeschi Trucks Band resumed their six-night residency at New York’s Beacon Theatre on Friday night, playing the penultimate show of the run, which featured two sets from the band and another special guest in saxophonist Ravi Coltrane, who joined them for several tunes in the first set and encore.
The evening was full of encores and kicked off with one, Betty Harris’ “Break in the Road,” before TTB’s own “Laugh About It.” The first set also featured covers of The Beatles’ “Within You Without You” and the Four Tops’ “Loving You (Has Made My Life Sweeter),” which preceded the first guest spot from Coltrane, who emerged to lend his instrument to “Midnight in Harlem.” Coltrane, the son of legendary jazz pioneer and saxophonist John Coltrane, then stuck around for a run of Miles Davis’ “Ali” and a cover of Bob Dylan’s “Down in the Flood” to round out the first set.
More covers were in store for set two, as TTB opened with George Jones’ “Color of the Blues” and offered takes on Derek and the Dominos’ “Keep On Growing,” Freddie King’s “Have You Ever Loved a Woman,” Howlin’ Wolf’s “I’ve Been Abused” and the Allman Brothers Band classic “Whipping Post,” which closed out the set. For last night’s three-song encore, the band covered Tom Petty’s “You Don’t Know How It Feels” and ran through Derek Trucks Band’s “Get What You Deserve” before welcomed Coltrane back out for a finale of “Let’s Go Get Stoned.”
See the full setlist below, along with some fan-shot video from the night. Tedeschi Trucks Band return to the Beacon stage tonight for the final show of their annual residency.
