You could say the apple hasn’t fallen far from the tree in the case of guitarist Derek Trucks, nephew of Allman Brothers Band drummer Butch. Though it really hasn’t fallen at all. The Derek Trucks Band’s sixth album Already Free confidently evokes the Allmans’ ’70s output, from the funky opening cover of Bob Dylan’s ”Down in the Flood” to the gospel-flavored ”Sweet Inspiration.” Trucks’ bluesy playing is excellent throughout, though he knows when to cede space to vocalist Mike Mattison or guest Doyle Bramhall II, who sings on a very edible peach, the soulful ”Maybe This Time.” B+
