The Derek Trucks Band – Crow Jane
Great Skip James tune. Derek Trucks does it just as good! This groove hits you like a wave. If this doesn’t make you move, I don’t know what to say. Amazing concert, amazing musicians, righteous jams.
Nice version. The singing captures some of the “hair-raising falsetto” of Skip James’s original and the guitar is very respectful to the song as well, not turning it into a riff-slanging piece, but for the most part, just supporting the vocal, and providing bridges between verses.
Derek Trucks is a renowned American guitarist and songwriter, born on June 8, 1979, in Jacksonville, Florida. Known for his slide guitar style, Trucks has carved a distinctive niche in the music industry with his soulful blend of rock, blues, jazz, and world music. He gained prominence as a member of The Allman Brothers Band and later co-founded the Tedeschi Trucks Band with his wife, singer-guitarist Susan Tedeschi. His virtuosity and emotional depth on the guitar have earned him spots on lists of the greatest guitarists of all time. Trucks’ commitment to exploring diverse musical landscapes has solidified his status as a modern guitar master, earning him widespread acclaim and a loyal fan base.
The guitar in this song is actually more restrained than you would think, watching the video, because the production highlights it much more than what the band is actually playing. Well, it is the Trucks band. This is one tight band! And they’re doing a great job at covering one of the best song ever written.
