Wheels of Soul Tour 2015 Interview with Tedeschi, Trucks, and Sharon Jones
Jones is one of music's most charismatic frontwomen, and she brings plenty of excitement on this version. The horn driven soul song gets injected with a shot of rock and roll with great solos from Albert and Derek Trucks. Susan Tedeschi and Sharon Jones feed off each other's energy to close the song in impressive style.
The interview features live clips from the band's performances at SummerStage, Spotify, and Las Vegas. Sharon Jones gives her opinion about soul music, and Derek Trucks shares what styles of music he considers is soulful: blues, gospel, Indian classical music, and anything that comes from a pure place and ends up in a pure place. Plenty of laughs and jokes are shared while they discuss what to expect during their shows on this tour.
