Trombone Shorty is one talented musician, and at the ripe age of 22, he is one of the better jazz/funk performers that I have ever seen. I saw Trombone Shorty and Orleans Ave play this past weekend at The Hangout Festival and it was one of the most danceable/entertaining shows of the weekend. I liked almost every single track he played, but my personal favorite was his instrumental, Hurricane Season. I also must admit his rendition of Marvin Gaye’s classic hit, Let’s Get It On, was no disappointment. One might say he “totally crushed it”.
I am posting a youtube video of “Let’s Get It On” from the Salmon Arm’s Roots and Blues Festival. Enjoy. Also I strongly suggest you take a listen to Hurricane Season from Trombone’s Backatown album.
