Trombone Shorty

Enclosed is a link to the most recent song by Trombone Shorty: "Do To Me". A segment of Sirus XM "Real Jazz"  portrays the young artist aka Troy Andrews as a conduit of many genres and doing a damn good job!  Not since the Marsalis  family has an artist done more for the New Orleans sound.  There is a "gumbo" of styles that incorporate New Orleans brass band with funk with hip-hop with r&b with rock and make it very tasty! I challenge the listener to partake and not feel a need to move.  This music truly is the rebirth of New Orleans from the ashes of Katrina.  Trombone Shorty is only one example of this movement...check it out!
Another great show is NPR's "tiny desk concert" featuring Trombone Shorty.
