The best thing about Trombone Shorty is the restless exploration of different genres that he brings to jazz. He ideally exemplifies the musical melting stew that is New Orleans, and he has brought jazz to new and young audiences.
On his new album Trombone Shorty brings back the soul and hip-hop, but he also a bit of the NOLA brass band sound along with a really bluesy underpinning.

“Dirty Water” is a grooving slow jam of soul/jazz song that highlights Trombone Shorty’s stunning range of talents.

Parking Lot Symphony, releasing April 28th, will be the musician’s Blue Note debut and an extensive tour starts in early April.
