Trombone Shorty from Treme



A Youtube promotional video about the lively and charismatic 24 year-old Trombone Shorty. He will be bringing his taste of the Treme neighborhood of New Orleans, his "superfunk rock" to the Jazz Cafe in Camden Town this Wednesday 19th. we'll be reviewing, courtesy of some new friends from Southern Comfort.

I was also pleased -at last -to see a piece of coverage of the TV series Treme , by Howard Reich of the Chicago Tribune, which actually talks about the presence of jazz , and is unashamed to use the J-Word..

  1. I saw this guy when he was genuinely short in the New Orleans Jazz Festival in 2001. He was amazing! Mind you, you had to check out 'Bonorama' to hear a fabulous all-bone band.
