Since the premiere of I Am the Moon: Episode I. Crescent On May 31, fans were on their toes at concerts by the Tedeschi Trucks Band to witness the live debut of songs inspired by a 12th-century poem about lovers Layla and Majnun. The final episode explores the story’s portrayal of desperation and passion with Tedeschi, Mike Mattison and Gabe Dixon leading the writing helm.
In accordance with all chapters of I am the moon, the third should be lush with blues, New Orleans R&B, Tedeschi’s soulful vocals, and Trucks’ inimitable, brilliant slide guitar styles. The episode also includes “Emmaline,” a waltz ballad written by Mattison that offers a reflection on deceased friends and loved ones, inspired, in part, by the loss of longtime Tedeschi Trucks Band keyboardist Kofi Burbridge.
