"Trombone Shorty has quickly become the internationally recognized face of modern New Orleans music, blending high-energy contemporary Funk and Soul with the city's long tradition of brass bands. New Orleans native Trombone Shorty began his career as a bandleader at the young age of six, toured internationally at age 12, and spent his teens playing with various brass bands throughout New Orleans and touring worldwide with Lenny Kravitz. He fronts Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, a funk/rock/jazz/hip-hop band. Together they have toured across the U.S., Europe, Australia, Russia, Japan and Brazil. In 2010, Trombone Shorty released his debut album, the Grammy®-nominated 'Backatown,' followed by 'For True' in 2011, which topped Billboard magazine's Contemporary Jazz Chart for 12 weeks. His newest album, 'Say That to This,' was released in 2013 and features funk/jazz elements of New Orleans." (Promo Copy)
