As a child, Derek Trucks was already a little wonder on two legs.Legend Buddy Guy recognized his enormous talent and startedteaching the young Trucks. That was the start of somethingtremendous. In the States he became known mostly as the guitaristof The Allman Brothers (he is the 'little cousin' of drummer ButchTrucks) and in that time he married the well-knownsinger-songwriter Susan Tedeschi. Trucks is mainly known for hisfantastic slide guitar sound that is reminiscent of the famousDuane Allman. With his own The Derek Trucks Band, Trucks, who justturned 30, produced seven albums. He is also a regular guitarist inEric Clapton's band. His characteristic guitar sound can also beheard on the albums of David Sanborn, Buddy Guy and McCoy Tyner. AtNorth Sea Jazz, Trucks will perform with his five-man line-up.
