Trombone Shorty's new album opens with a dirge, but if you think the beloved bandleader, singer, songwriter and horn-blower born Troy Andrews came here to mourn, you got it all wrong. But that's not unusual for a man raised in one of the Tremé's most musical families. Andrews got his name when he picked up his instrument at four: "My parents pushed me toward trombone because they didn't need another trumpet player," he laughs.

By eight, he led his own band in parades, halls and even bars: "They'd have to lock the door so the police couldn't come in." Promoters would try to hand money to his older cousins, but they'd kindly redirect them to the boy. In his teens, Andrews played shows abroad with the Neville Brothers. Fresh out of high school he joined Lenny Kravitz' band. Across that time, three Trombone Shorty albums and many collaborations since, Andrews nurtured a voracious appetite for all types of music
