New Orleans-based Trombone Shorty has been playing in bands since the days when his nickname actually was appropriate for his height. Trombone Shorty, whose real name is Troy Andrews, played his first New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival at the age of six in 1991. He has been playing to crowds all over the world. In 2005, he was a featured player in Lenny Kravitz's band. As his profile has risen and he has received numerous accolades, he has performed with such music greats as U2, Jeff Beck and Green Day. In September, 2011, Trombone Shorty released For True, which debuted at #1 on Billboard's Contemporary Jazz Album Chart, just like his last record (Backatown) did. This new album features star-studded guest appearances by Lenny Kravitz, Jeff Beck, Warren Haynes, Ledisi, and Kid Rock, among others. On Friday, November 11, 2011, Trombone Shorty and his band Orleans Avenue came to New York City's huge Terminal 5 for a headlining gig. ASCAP was there cheering him on as the band totally delivered an infusion of New Orleans into the big apple. The crowd danced in awe of Trombone Shorty's virtuosic playing.
