Last night, Tedeschi Trucks Band continued their 2018 Wheels of Soul tour with The Marcus King Band and Drive-By Truckers at Atlanta, GA’s Fox Theater. The tour’s collaborative spirit continued in full force at the Fox, with Tedeschi Trucks Band’s Kofi Burbridge and Kebbi Williams joining the Marcus King Band for a trio of tunes to round out their opening set. Drive-By Truckers followed in kind, welcoming Williams, Derek Trucks, and Susan Tedeschi of TTB, as well as frontman Patterson Hood‘s father and legendary Muscle Shoals guitarist David Hood, for a rendition of Eddie Hinton‘s “Everybody Needs Love”.Tedeschi Trucks Band also had plenty of surprises in store for their headlining set in Atlanta. First, they welcomed longtime Derek Trucks Band percussionist Yonrico Scott to add rhythmic texture to a rendition of “Leavin’ Trunk”, written by Sleepy John Estes (as “Milk Cow Blues”) and popularized by Taj Mahal on his self-titled 1968 debut album.For the final song of their set, Tedeschi Trucks Band welcomed the biggest surprise guest of the night, guitar virtuoso Jimmy Herring. In addition to Herring’s past work with Aquarium Rescue Unit, his current gig as the lead guitarist for Widespread Panic, and much more, Herring briefly spent time with the Allman Brothers Band playing alongside Trucks. At the Fox, Jimmy and Derek traded solos on an electrifying, extended rendition of Allman Brothers classic “In Memory of Elizabeth Reed”.

By Álvaro Algarra / Voice of America / edited by Diálogo Staff February 21, 2020 The booming bilateral relations between Cuba and Venezuela have raised concerns in the South American country and in the region, due to the influence Havana could exert over Nicolás Maduro, experts say.Hugo Chávez’s rise to power in 1999 meant a qualitative and quantitative leap for Cuban-Venezuelan relations, says expert in international affairs Carlos Luna. This was especially the case in the oil sector. Luna says that with the Maduro regime the relationship has grown and diversified in several areas of society.“Cuba has provided advice not only in terms of professors, in terms of sports and of people who have come to advise the Venezuelan public administration, but also with military participation — a participation in terms of intelligence, which has infiltrated the civil service, which means that we should be talking about a Cuban occupation,” the expert told Voice of America (VOA).That is evidenced by the strengthening of relations with Havana. In late January, the Venezuelan regime called for the inclusion of the Cuban ambassador in Caracas in meetings of the executive cabinet.“The ambassadors, who are practically part of the cabinet, the Cuban ambassador here, needs to have open doors in each ministry to coordinate, revitalize, move forward,” Maduro said.This decision will affect the country in a negative way, community activist Luis Marques told VOA.“This is high treason, a betrayal of the citizenry, and when they tell us that we are betrayers of the homeland for demanding democracy, in fact they are the ones giving the country away,” Marques said.The Maduro regime’s Economy Vice President Tareck El Aissami said that more than 1,400 projects have been signed in recent years in different areas of bilateral cooperation, and that these will surely continue to increase.Amid this controversy, the country’s Interim President Juan Guaidó, who went on an international trip in late January, said that Cuba “is also responsible for the crisis in Venezuela.”“We have denounced Cuba’s ongoing interference in the Venezuelan State and the Armed Force,” he added.
