Troy 'Trombone Shorty' Andrews is out in support of his third outing for Verve Records, Say That To Say This, which currently sits atop the Billboard Contemporary Jazz chart. The album was co-produced by Andrews and kindred spirit Raphael Saadiq.
Andrews’ previous projects include 2010′s Grammy-nominated Backatown and his sophomore effort, For True (2011), which spent 12 weeks atop Billboard’s Contemporary Jazz Chart. He has recently been featured on Conan, The Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, Austin City Limits and in a recurring role on the hit HBO series Treme.
But for Andrews, the biggest thrill of all was performing at The White House in February 2012.
“That was a dream come true about 50 times over,” he said. “When we started playing, I forgot I was at the White House, because I was on stage with all this musical royalty – B.B. King, Mick Jagger, Booker T. Jones, Jeff Beck, Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks, Gary Clark Jr., the list goes on.”
