Their new album, For True offers substantive proof of their explosive growth, further refining the signature sound Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews has dubbed Supafunkrock.
The band—Mike Ballard on bass, Pete Murano on guitar, Joey Peebles on drums, Dwayne Williams on percussion, Dan Oestreicher on baritone sax and Tim McFatter on tenor sax—stirs together old-school New Orleans 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.
Andrews wrote or co-wrote all 14 tracks on the new album, including collaborating with the legendary Lamont Dozier on “Encore,” while this time playing as much trumpet as trombone, as well as organ, drums, piano, keys, synth bass and percussion. Indeed, he played every part on the swaying, Latin-tinged “Unc.” He’s also come into his own as a singer, honoring the hallowed legacy of the great soul men of the 1960s and ’70s. Like its predecessor, the new album turns on a rare combination of virtuosity and high-energy, party-down intensity.
Yes, he has made quite an impression on the critics. “Trombone Shorty is so ready for his close-up,” New York Times reviewer Nate Chinen wrote, describing the young virtuoso as “a native prodigy destined for breakout success.” The San Francisco Chronicle’s Joel Selvin hailed him as “New Orleans’ brightest new star in a generation.” Rolling Stone’s Will Hermes raved that “Backatown is both deeply rooted and culturally omnivorous.” And the Washington Post’s Mike Joyce described one live performance as “a near-deafening, funk-charged blast of percussion, brass, reeds and guitar distortion that might have knocked the crowd sideways had there been any room to move.”

Troy started early, learning how to play drums and what he remembers as “the world’s smallest trumpet” at the age of three. By the time he reached six, this prodigy was playing trumpet and trombone in a jazz band led by his older brother James, himself a trumpet player of local renown who has been called “Satchmo of the Ghetto.”
He became a member of the New Orleans Center for the Creative Arts’ (NOCCA) musical education program for high school students; other graduates included Harry Connick, Jr., Nicholas Payton, and Wynton and Branford Marsalis. At NOCCA, Andrews took music theory, ear training, and instrumental instruction courses under Clyde Kerr, Jr. and Kent Jordan, among others. In 2003 he was one of five young musicians chosen as the subject for a PBS television documentary, and also performed on the network’s nationally broadcast tribute to Louis Armstrong, directed by Wynton Marsalis
In 2009, at 23, Andrews became the youngest artist ever to be pictured on the official poster of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. The next youngest was Wynton Marsalis, who was featured at age 41. Said Marsalis of Andrews – “Shorty possesses the rarest combination of talent, technical capability and down-home soul. I’m his biggest fan.” buy Misoprostol india
