Joyful Noise is the third studio album by The Derek Trucks Band, released on September 2, 2002.[5] It features an eclectic mix of music, ranging from gospel, blues, jazz fusion, Latin music, to East Indian music.[6] Many of the songs feature special guests, including Trucks' wife Susan Tedeschi, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, the nephew of Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and a respected singer in his own right, and soul artist Solomon Burke.[5] The album was produced by noted producers Russ Kunkel and Craig Street[7] and was recorded at the Bearsville and Sunset Sound Studios.[8] This is also the first album to feature the songwriting and musical talents of the band's newest member, Kofi Burbridge; keyboardist, flautist, and backing vocalist for the band, as well as brother to Oteil Burbridge, bassist in The Allman Brothers Band, with whom Derek Trucks is also a member.
