American Songwriter Magazine once described them as, “take a handful of funk, add a pitcher of R&B, toss in some jazz, sprinkle a dusting of hip-hop, and sauté that gumbo under a sizzling New Orleans flame for a flavorful musical dish. It’s what the Crescent City’s Trombone Shorty has been serving up for the better part of two decades.”
