Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue

1986 -

Origin: United States

Main instrument: Trombone/trumpet

Genres: Jazz, R&B/Soul/Funk

New Orleans born Troy Andrews, a.k.a. Trombone Shorty, is nothing short of a legend in the Treme neighbourhood, where even a local jazz club is named after him. At the age of five, Andrews had mastered not only the trombone, but also the drums and the trumpet, and by six, he was performing in local clubs with his brother James. His rare virtuosity has made him the subject of a 2003 PBS documentary, and has led him to perform as a member of Lenny Kravitz's horn section during the artist's 2005 tour. His collaborations include sharing the stage with U2, Green Day and The Neville Brothers, among many others. A graduate of the New Orleans Centre for the Creative Arts, Andrews has gone on to record several solo albums before his 2010 Verve debut, Backatown. For True came along a year later, followed by Say This to Say That in 2013.
