PBS NewsHour | Trombone Shorty Brings Funk to New Orleans Big Brass Tradition | PBS

Duration: 04:41
Program: PBS NewsHour #10214
Broadcast Date: Nov. 30, 2011

The New Orleans music tradition has a long history of talented native sons, and Troy, "Trombone Shorty", Andrews is among the most recent. But he's no newcomer to the music scene. Andrews began playing horn at age 4 in funeral bands. Now, at age 24, and with a new album, Andrews continues to merge traditional brass instrumentation with new funk sounds and present it for big crowds with energy.
