Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue make the trip to Manchester in November, Owen Mullen reports. 

Jazz, funk and soul musician Troy Andrews AKA Trombone Shorty has risen from the roots of New Orleans brass band parades to embark on another world tour this year.

At only 31 years old, he has already racked up an impressive list of names of artists he has worked and performed with, including Bob Ezrin, Foo Fighters, Lenny Kravitz, Jeff Beck and Steven Tyler to name a few.

After releasing a string of successful solo records, reaching number one on the Billboard Jazz Albums Chart and being nominated for the 2011 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Jazz Album, Andrews returned in 2017 with his latest album Parking Lot Symphony – his fourth major label studio album, and arguably his most accessible to date. Highlights of the album include It Ain’t No Use, Dirty Water, and a surprisingly good cover of Ernie K. Doe’s Here Come The Girls.

You can catch Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue at Gorilla, Manchester on 10th November, followed by appearances at Academy, Dublin the 11th and O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire, London on the 14th.
