Trombone Shorty Brings Funk to New Orleans Big Brass...

  • Aired: 11/30/2011

  • Rating: E
The New Orleans music tradition has a long history of talented native sons, and Troy, "Trombone Shorty", Andrews is among the most recent. But he's no newcomer to the music scene. Andrews began playing horn at age 4 in funeral bands. Now, at age 24, and with a new album, Andrews continues to merge traditional brass instrumentation with new funk sounds and present it for big crowds with energy.
