Why See Trombone Shorty And Orleans Avenue?
A Modern Jazz Great
Trombone Shorty's 2013 offering, Say That to Say This, was, to the delight of many fans, a return to his New Orleans roots with a full-on funk record. Ever the experimenter, Shorty has spent past records dabbling in everything from rap to rock, with his 2011 album For True featuring guest spots from Jeff Beck and Kid Rock. And it's quite telling that the biggest names on Say That to Say This were New Orleans legends The Meters on the song Be My Lady. With tracks like the beautiful Dream On and the instrumental Sunrise only reaffirming Shorty's place at the head of the modern jazz table, he's more than keeping New Orleans jazz alive... he's taking it swinging into the modern day and beyond!
As ever, Shorty is backed by his band Orleans Avenue on tour, a collective of stunningly accomplished players including Joey Peebles on drums and Pete Murano providing the guitar licks. Catch them live near you!

Cranston's wrenching performance stands on its own. In context, it's a terrifying reminder of how an all-too-human, anger-filled public figure, with access to a worldwide stage, can be mistaken for a god.
