Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue
Troy Andrews aka “Trombone Shorty” is a trombonist, trumpeter and singer who has gained respect from his fellow New Orleans jazzmen where he was born in 1986. He’s also won over rock stars such as Lenny Kravitz, a regular collaborator, who performed on Backatown (2011). The album’s title comes from the New Orleans nickname for Treme, one of America’s oldest black ghettos. Trombone Shorty is from Treme and loves tribal funk beats. His grandfather, Jessy Hill, wrote and sang the soul music classic Ooh Poo Pah Doo and his older trumpeter brother, James Andrews, is big on the New Orleans scene. The Andrews are a musical dynasty up there with the likes of the Batiste, Neville and Marsalis families. Shorty has his own word to describe his cool blend of rock, soul, jazz and contemporary hip hop funk: “supafunkrock”. A cultural melting pot using ingredients worthy of hot Creole cuisine.
