Celebrated New Orleans funk masters Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue will bring their unique jazz beats and funky grooves to the Backyard Stage at The Amp on Thursday, October 17, 2019.
Trombone Shorty’s new album opens with a dirge. If you think the beloved bandleader, singer, songwriter and horn-blower born Troy Andrews came here to mourn, you got it all wrong. That bit of beautiful New Orleans soul — “Laveau Dirge No. 1”, named after one of the city’s most famous voodoo queens — shows off our host’s roots before “Parking Lot Symphony” branches out wildly, wonderfully, funkily across 12 diverse cuts.
True to its title, this album contains multitudes of sound; from brass band blare and deep-groove funk, to bluesy beauty and hip-hop/pop swagger — and plenty of emotion all anchored, of course, by stellar playing and the idea that, even in the toughest of times, as Andrews says, “Music brings unity.”
