Browsing the library, picking CDs at random can lead to a lot of wasted time and heartache, but sometimes, sometimes you accidentally pick a winner.
I picked up the CD For True just because of the name Trombone Shorty; i mean, who plays the trombone in this day and age?
Troy Andrews, apparently, and he does it very, very well.
The library categorized it as jazz, but i'd also call it funk and r&b, with some rock guitar, bounce vocals and old school hip-hop. Really, it is nearly impossible to define because it feels like its own thing.
It does however, make me dance and you know how i love to dance.
The CD has been on repeat for 2 days now and i keep finding nuacnes that make me smile.
Do yourself a favor, give Trombone Shorty a try; be sure to listen to the whole album.
You can thank me later.
