CD Review: Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue - For True

For True is Troy Trombone Shorty Andrews' latest CD release. It features a host of big name guests including Jeff Beck, Lenny Kravitz and members of the Rebirth Brass Band. It covers a lot of ground, ranging from the marching bands of New Orleans via AOR to contemporary pop-soul and funk. Andrews himself describes the mix as 'supafunkrock'. Brit rock guitar hero Jeff Beck contributes a Jeff Beck solo, Lenny Kravitz funks it up on bass guitar and Ledisi belts out some nu soul vocals on Then There Was You with some impressive trumpet work by non other than Trombone Shorty. The leader is a multi instrumentalist and the inclusion of the Rebirth Brass Band somewhat blurs the division of labour on this most varied CD. The real jazz interest is limited to a tantalising couple of minutes of excellent French Quarter marching band sounds in the two part Lagnaippe. British fans can hear the band live in Liverpool at Eric's (September 23) and London's Jazz Café (September 24). The CD is available now. Russell.
