From Austin City Limits: "Backatown"....This Trombone Shorty guy rocks. I understand if horns and funk are not your cup of tea, generally not my thing either...but what ever it is, this kid has it.

Nice vid from Mtn Jam in 2010 . >>>>>> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cyPtWnjkdKU Trombone Shorty was one of those great unexpected sets that Mtn Jam has come to be known for IMO . They will be having their return engagement at Mtn Jam this year and I'm looking foward to it . They must like Hunter Mountain as they also played at Hunter's "Bluestock" last year .

Boston last fall with Jimmy Herring & WSP on Pusherman

3:30 or so it gets cooking....


I've seen alot of good shows at the Orpheum over the last 12 years and the Pusherman with Trombone Shorty was the most rocking, front to back party that I've ever seen in that place, and not really close. EVERYBODY in that place was getting down.

A few years ago (2010 maybe?) I went to see Gov't Mule at Penn's Landing in Philadelphia. Jackie Greene was the announced opener. I knew only what Jackie looked like, not his band, so when a band started setting up I thought it was his band. However, Jackie never appeared, but the dude with trombone came out and led the band through a hot set funky New Orleans blues and R&B. he announced they were Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue. Great music. I've seen him once more and it too was a fantastic show but that was last summer and he's had some attention and was able to play a full set with a light show etc. It was kicking as$.

One of the coolest things about their unannounced appearance at the Mule show was watching Warren & Jorgen watch the band from the rear stage area. They were diggin' it.

Horns and funk ARE my cup of tea, so you can imagine how I feel about Trombone Shorty

I saw a picture at Jazz Fest a few years back of young Trombone Shorty (circa age 5) playing with Bo Diddley at the festival. The look of shock and amazement on Bo's face was priceless.

It reminded me of the looks on people's faces when they heard an 11-year-old Derek Much like Derek, Trombone Shorty didn't settle for being a child prodigy novelty act and has continued to work on his craft, becoming one of the best horn players in New Orleans.

Hope to see him at Jazz Fest this weekend

My wife and I saw the ACL broadcast, cranked it up, and were dancing around the joint! GREAT STUFF!

I was at that shoe too, but didn't get to see Shortys set due to the fact that he came on at 5:00 and the wife & I couldn't make it there by 5:00 on a Friday (workday). Shorty was definately announced for that show though, as we were hoping to make it by 5:00, but that's way too early.
He tore it up later when he came out & played with the Mule.
It was a very good Mule show too.
Jackie Greene was underwhelming though. I still don't get him.

Maybe they announced him later than when i got the ticket. We came from Scranton and had no idea Shorty was playing. We got there real early because we wanted to be on the rail down front. If memory serves he played on Soulshine and the trombone fit the song perfectly. He was very good. I get Jackie Greene but he doesn't seem like a good opener for Gov't Mule. He'd be a good opener for Bob Dylan or someone like that.

I saw Trombone Shorty a couple years at the Sarasota Blues Festival. He did a fantastic tribute to Louis Armstrong. We were blown away. I love his first cd, too.

Must have been sweet!...There are more than a couple of nice versions of TS performing.."On the Sunny side of the street" on You Tube.

I'm going to have to pick up his first CD....."Backatown" has been in my regular rotation for some time now...

Caught Trombone Shorty and Orleans Ave. this past Sunday night at the House of Blues in New Orleans. Dirty Dozen Brass opening.

Patrick, you were right about seeing these guys in NOLA. The evening was amazing. The packed house was way into it and the musicians too. I posted more in the JazzFest thread.
