With the third of four installments of Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks' multimedia project I Am The Moon, any narrative thread among the albums has dissipated. How a tune like "Yes We Will," which seems to be about global warming, ("Oh, our planet is changing fast/ And the way things are going it just won't last/ Times are gonna get real hard") fits into a some vague narrative based on Nizami's epic 12th century love poem Layla and Majnun may only be apparent to the husband and wife principals of the Tedeschi Trucks Band. But then, the supposed inspiration for what the band calls a "portrait of passion, despair and hard-won revelation in American-music technicolor'' is itself a varied poem that features desert battles, roving packs of animals, smugglers and a narrator—Nizami—who extols the spiritual virtues of imbibing.  In other words, almost any song on any topic could work in this "story." It must be remembered that these collections of songs are the soundtrack to previously released films. But whatever the motivations, this is again six songs of Tedeschi Trucks doing what they do best—blues rock highlighted by Trucks' slide guitar and Tedeschi's strong vocals. "Yes We Will" is the kind of straight-ahead electric blues number that's tailor made for Tedeschi to sing. What's most interesting about I Am The Moon III. The Fall is that two other members of the band get a chance to hold forth. In the New Orleans second line-flavored "Gravity," singer/keyboard player Gabe Dixon makes a strong case for powerful women as he sings "She doesn't give you everything you want/ 'Cause she knows a man/ She'll give you all you don't know you need," before Trucks' slide guitar slashes away into a solo. Mike Mattison also gives an impassioned vocal turn as he repeats the title in the waltz, "Emmaline." With horn charts and ardent vocal support from Mark Rivers the rousing gospel ballad closer "Take Me As I Am," is a perfect setting for Tedeschi's heartfelt plea. While the focus on solving the riddle of "Are we really in the end, just in love with the dream of love?" seems to have slipped away, this is still the Tedeschi Trucks Band with a mountain of quality material and the talents to play it all well. © Robert Baird/Qobuz
