Tedeschi Trucks Band is currently touring through Europe and celebrating the release of their live album and film, Live From The Fox Oakland. However, this newest release is not the only project members of the band are excited about. A live album titled Whose Hat Is This? has just gone on presale, which features a live improvisational performance by Tedeschi Trucks Band bassist Tim Lefebvre, drummers JJ Johnson and Tyler Greenwell, and sax player Kebbi Williams.Whose Hat Is This? was recorded by the foursome at A-Trane in Berlin on November 12, 2015. When Tedeschi Trucks Band made their stop in Germany, the quartet returned to A-Trane and performed at the venue as a tribute to their upcoming album. You can pre-order Whose Hat Is This? here on vinyl, so that you can get the first listen when it ships on April 9th. [H/T Tomorrowsverse]
Bech-Bruun has advised Marubeni Corporation and its partners on the legal and commercial matters in relation to the Akita Noshiro offshore wind project in Japan.

Bech-Bruun has since February 2017 advised on the structure of the project and assisted in the procurement process including drafting and negotiation of major supply contracts. The construction of the onshore substations and transmission lines is scheduled to start this month, and the commercial operations are expected in 2022. Apart from Marubeni, the consortium includes Obayashi Corporation, Tohoku Sustainable & Renewable Energy, Cosmo Eco Power, The Kansai Electric Power, Chubu Electric Power, The Akita Bank, Ohmori, Sawakigumi Corporation, Kyowa Oil, Katokensetsu, Kanpu, and Sankyo.
