New Orleans native Trombone Shorty is the bandleader and frontman of Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, a hard-edged funk band that employs hip-hop beats, rock dynamics and improvisation in a jazz tradition.
Trombone Shorty began his career as a bandleader at the tender age of six, and toured internationally for the first time at age 12 before joining Lenny Kravitz' horn section at the age of 19 for a 105-date world tour in 2005-2006.
His third outing for Verve Records, "Say That To Say This," co-produced by Shorty and R&B titan Raphael Saadiq, was released in September 2013. In 2010, Trombone Shorty released the Grammy-nominated "Backatown," followed in 2011 by "For True," which topped Billboard Magazine's Contemporary Jazz Chart for 12 weeks.
