All the way from New Orleans, Louisiana, Troy Andrews, known by the stage name Trombone Shorty, is a musician, producer, actor, and philanthropist, best known as a trombone and trumpet player touring with his own band, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, and American Songwriter Magazine described them. “Take a handful of funk, add a pitcher of R&B, toss in some jazz, sprinkle a dusting of hip-hop, and sauté that gumbo under a sizzling New Orleans flame for a flavorful musical dish. It’s what the Crescent City’s Trombone Shorty has been serving up for the better part of two decades.”
This year, Andrews and his band released their first album of new music in five years, Lifted, featuring a much more energetic play style than his previous albums. “I had an idea for a new song right after a show,” says Andrews, “so the band and I decided to go straight into the studio and record it that night. We were still sweaty and buzzing from the energy of the gig, and we definitely carried that vibe into the session with us,” and “I think this is the closest we’ve ever gotten to bottling up the live show and putting it on a record.”
