Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue – London [Koko] | 01.10.2013

6063632445_db237031b2“Trombone Shorty had clearly set out to present New Orleans as a city whose glory days aren’t over… it was a signal that the city’s music would push ahead.” The New York Times

The band: Mike Ballard on bass, Pete Murano on guitar, Joey Peebles on drums, Dan Oestreicher on baritone sax and Tim McFatter on tenor sax – stirs together old-school jazz, funk and soul, laced with hard-rock power chords and hip-hop beats, and they’ve added some tangy new ingredients on For True as they keep pushing the envelope, exploring new musical territory.

Trombone Shorty’s new album, ‘Say That To Say This,’ is set for release on 10 September via Verve. The debut single from the album, “Fire & Brimstone”, premiered exclusively on USATODAY.com. Trombone Shorty (Troy Andrews) co-produced the 10-track CD with Grammy-nominated R&B virtuoso, Raphael Saadiq. The album also features Trombone Shorty performing with funk legends, the original Meters with Cyril Neville on “Be My Lady”, marking The Meters’ first studio recording together since 1977. “It’s really funky, like James Brown funk mixed with New Orleans Meters and Neville Brothers mixed with what I do on top… And we have a bit of R&B from Raphael’s side,” said Andrews about the new record. Saadiq added, “If you’re a producer or musician, you want to work with other great musicians because it only betters you… I was just honored to be a part of the project.”
