trombone shorty and raphael saadiq interview

HE'S GOT THE METERS, RAPHAEL SAADIQ & CYRIL NEVILLE ON HIS NEW RECORD!!!


Last week New Orleans' own Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews released his album Say This to Say That, his third recording for the historic Verve Records. At the young age of 27 years old, this is already Andrews' ninth album. For this go around, he collaborated with famed producer Raphael Saadiq, Cyril Neville, and the legendary Meters band-- an especially exciting accomplishment since this is the first recording from the Meters since they broke up in 1977. In short this record is a very big deal, features a bevy of musical icons...and right off the top, the single "Fire And Brimstone" is a certified banger. The Trombone Shorty sound is a mix of classic jazz, funk, and rock with the energy of a new generation--there is nothing like it.
The interview below is a first look into how the Trombone Shorty and Raphael Saadiq collaboration came about. Pick up Say This To Say That HERE and check HERE for Trombone Shorty tour dates .
