New Orleans Jazz Festival Featured Artist
Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue
“Dizzying talent.” The Washington Post
New Orleans wunderkind Trombone Shorty (aka Troy Andrews) has rocketed into the public eye this past year – from closing the New Orleans Jazz Festival to appearing in a Lenny Kravitz documentary to lending his sassy music to a Nikon commercial starring Ashton Kutcher. The Grammy-nominated musician and his band, Orleans Avenue, know how to rile up a crowd with their infectious, high octane blend of tight funk, jazz-rock and slinky R&B – or, as they like to call it, “supafunkrock.” An “unstoppable force” (The New York Times) in today’s music scene, Shorty brings all the rock-star swagger with serious chops to back it up. Get ready for a brash and bold music party that’ll have you dancing in your seats.
Available on the Jazz & Blues series
