221: “Buckjump” by Trombone Shorty

His bodyguards look funny.Y’all, the new Trombone Shorty is out and it is funky-donkey… For True (Sep 13, 2011). Dialed-in, straight ahead grooves, brilliant brass and Shorty’s (Troy Andrews’) soulful voice make a potent combination. It’s aural New Orleans, and they ain’t bringing no weak sauce.

Plus, you gotta give props to any vertically challenged trombone player who makes good on his talent like this guy.

I’m mixing up the format today. I can’t find YouTube vids for everything, so I’m doing MOG / Spotify links and including the YouTube embed if it’s available. That’s the technology I’m going with for now. I’m open to suggestions if anyone wants to throw some out there.

What we have here is open communication. Thank-you for your consideration.

Enjoy.
