Tedeschi Trucks Band Play "Please Call Home"

Tedeschi Trucks Band’s annual run at New York’s Beacon Theatre continued last night. Like Friday’s residency opener, TTB keyboardist Kofi Burbridge—who has been on leave from the band since undergoing open-heart surgery in June—played with his group during the show.

TTB also honored Gregg Allman and nodded to the Allman Brothers Band’s own marathons at the Beacon with their debut cover of “Please Call Home.” The song originally appeared on the ABB’s 1970 LP Idlewild South, but the Brothers rarely played the song in their latter years (though Allman often slotted the tune during his solo sets). Derek Trucks also looked back at a few of his other past projects during the night, playing Derek and the Dominoes’ “Keep on Growing,” Elmore James’ “The Sky is Crying,” “Derek Trucks Band’s “Get What You Deserve,” the Dead family-adopted Jerry Garcia favorite “Sugaree” and Leon Russell’s “A Song For You.”

The ensemble’s Beacon run resumes on Tuesday.
