Can't get enough of "Let Me Get By"

Tedeschi Trucks Band has been getting great reviews for "Let Me Get By," the new album from the 12-piece band put together by Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks. And they are well-deserved.

We downloaded it as soon as it was released last week and just can't stop playing it! Every track is now in our Marvelous Mix, and we'd have a hard time leaving any out - something we can't often say about a whole album.

After merging their separate bands in 2010, husband and wife Trucks and Tedeschi released three albums on Sony Masterworks. The left the label after 2013's "Made Up Mind."

As good as their earlier albums were, "Let Me Get By" reaches another level. Recorded at T&T's home studio in Jacksonville, Fla., and produced by Trucks, it has a loose, rollicking feel from start to finish.

"It's the first truly autonomous record we've done," Trucks said in a Rolling Stone interview.

"The songs could actually open up and stretch a little bit," said Tedeschi. "There were a lot more improvisational moments where, in the past, we tried to make all the songs shorter and fit for radio. It felt more natural. The record itself breathes."
