Troy Andrews has been wailing on the brass since the age of 4. But there’s nothing juvenile about his sound. The New Orleans musician — who goes by the name Trombone Shorty — has performed with Lenny Kravitz, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, Green Day, Grace Potter and many others. Echoes of that diverse range can be found in his more recent compositions, which incorporate elements of rock, improvisational jazz and hip-hop into his traditionally fabulous N’awlins funk. Check out Shorty’s infectious sound this weekend in Rutland.
