Trombone Shorty!

by Joey deVilla on January 21, 2011

I had my computer and a hard drive full of music for half my hospital stay last week, and one of the things that made my stay a little better was Trombone Shorty’s 2010 album, Backatown. His music’s a mix of jazz, rock, funk and hip-hop; if you’re a fan of Maceo Parker’s “2 percent jazz, 98 percent fonkay stuff”, Trombone Shorty should be right up your alley.

The video above is Verve records’ “Trombone Shorty” reel, which should give you a taste of what he’s all about.

I saw Trombone Shorty a couple months back on Letterman and was really impressed. Thanks to my iPad I was able to purchase Backatown without getting off the couch.

Hope you’re feeling better Joey
