[THE FUTURE OF NOLA] At the ripe old age of 27, Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews is on the fast track toward taking up Louis Armstrong’s mantle of New Orleans performers who transcend racial and cultural boundaries as an ambassador of the city’s jazz, funk and hip-hop heritage. The child trumpet-trombone prodigy—famously nicknamed for, at age 4, commanding a horn then twice as long as he was tall—now has his own charitable foundation and an after-school program, plus a children’s book in the works. Forthcoming Verve Records release Say That to Say This has him transitioning from producer Ben Ellman to throwback R&B soulman Raphael Saadiq, and performing a powerhouse collab with NOLA funk legends the Meters and Cyril Neville. Backed by other talented local players, the Orleans Avenue live show is an experience, invigorated by call-and-response musicianship, tight grooves and face-melting horn work. And the kid’s got mad charisma: Check new single “Fire & Brimstone” for proof.
