Trombone Shorty is an exceptional musician. A graduate of NOCCA|Riverfront in New Orleans where he was already releasing albums before his graduation. A wonderful jazz player and young man. If you like raw jazz you will love this CD. His live performaces spur people to get the CD, when infact the CD makes you want to see his live performance. This CD is worth the money for sure!

For fans of Trombone Shorty or of New Orleans jazz, this is a worthwhile pickup. I don't know how young he was when this was released (definitely young), but even here his instrumental talent is apparent. Fair warning: the vocal elements and mixing of genres that characterize his subsequent studio albums aren't really present on this album; this is straight-up jazz.
If that's what you're looking for, you won't find a better modern trombonist.
