Susan Tedeschi on 'Hope and Desire'

In 2005, Susan Tedeschi's album Hope and Desire was released. It was produced by Joe.

On Jambands.com she spoke about that.

.... and years later I was making a record on Universal with Joe Henry as the producer. We did the Hope and Desire record right after I had had my daughter Sophia so I didn’t have a lot of time to write a record. They told me to just do a really cool cover record of tunes that people might not know so much, but they would all be great songs with Joe as the producer and the band that he works with. I said, “Okay, so you’re not going to use my band. That’s interesting.” I asked Joe who his players were and he said, “Doyle Bramhall.” I said, “Awesome, I’m in already!”
He had drummer Jay Bellerose , who I played with in a band when I was 18. He’s amazing. Nowadays he plays with Ray LaMontagne, but he used to play with everybody. He even played on a Robert Plant and Alison Krauss record. He played with Paula Cole, he used to play with lots of people. We went to college together and I was in a band with him and the bass player, Paul Bryant. He plays with Aimee Mann and he’s also a producer and great singer.
So the band was Paul Bryant, Dave Ellis, and Doyle Bramhall—so I was in. We made the record in six days, it was the easiest record I ever made. It’s one of my favorite records that I ever made because it sounded really great and it was just really relaxed and fun......
