After being blown away by Backatown, his previous album, I was a little apprehensive about whether Trombone Shorty would deliver the same energy and character, or would this album feel like 'more of the same'. So, I took the album out for a spin, literally, with an hour long bicycle ride. I did the same with Backatown, and ended that ride with more energy than I started with. For this album, I can say that my experience was just as exhilarating. This was another dynamic album that I really enjoyed.
If you want to get a good feel for the best of this album, check out these tracks: "Do To Me", "Buckjump", and "Then There Was You".

I've been a fan of Trombone Shorty for years - and have been highly anticipating this CD's release. He has definitely raised the bar with this one. I dare you to listen to this CD without moving some part of your body...you can't! Fantastic combination of unclassifiable jazz-funk-rock instrumentals and vocals. "Buckjump" sucks you in - and the rest will not let you go.

The instrumentation is tight. The beats are hot. Crank it up...it's an instant party.

This album is so funky I put in nose plugs and covered my head with a plastic bag in a room full of scented candles and the funk still flowed through. High energy, impeccable musicianship, mixed with down and dirty compositions make "For True" a real triumph to the highest degree.
Ain't it amazing what these kids can do with real musical instruments these days.

get off your butt and get this cd into your life! i'm not kidding. i am a J-A-D-E-D record store employee who has been working music retail since god was born, and it takes a freakin' lot to impress me these days...especially with so much crap being put out on the radio that sucks. i'd never even heard of this guy until today, but i put his cd in the player to see what it sounded like, and immediately i liked it. at first there were 2 or 3 tracks i didn't care for as much cuz i don't go for contemporary r'n'b vocal type stuff (i'm mostly a rocker), but after listening thru a second time, i find that even the "weak" tracks are better than the crap that's in rotation on pop/r&b radio. it's a nice mix of funk, retro-like jazzy latiny groove, totally modern hip hop, occasional rock guitar thrown in, and awesome horn blowing with the energy and heart beating excitment of a football marching band ...all this love from a girl who doesn't even LIKE horns most of the time! get this cd NOW! i've already gone online to get tix to see him play Nashville this month. Lucky me! :)

I saw Trombone Shorty Playing on a talk show, and immediately, wrote down the name of the band and search for it on Amazon..it's such a relief to hear good refreshing music this days, that has to do so little with electronics, I mean, " For True " does not have a " filler " song. They're all good, and the fact that Mr. Jeff Beck plays in one song, Kid Rock sings on another among other collaborations, from other fine musicians doesn't hurt either.
I recommend this CD 100%, it has elements of rock, funk, R & B, Jazz...very entertaining.

Talk about a child prodigy! It's gotta be something in the water in New Orleans. Look at the talented Marsalis Family with two generations of jazz legends. Then look at the Nevilles. Same thing. Now it's the Andrews family. There's Glen - who started the Rebirth Bass Band and Troy - yep, you know him best as "Trombone Shorty" .The guy turned 30 this year but he's been playing since he was SIX YEARS OLD!

I've loved his previous albums and got to see him at this year's Philly Folk Fest. Folk Fest? Just two weeks after he headlined the Newport JAZZ Fest? Is this guy versatile or what? Not only did he do an amazing hour - with his band - in Philly; he came back to play along with David Bromberg and his Big Band later that night. Even though there were chairs, no one sat during any of the time Shorty was on stage.

This CD shows why the guy is so popular. He is infectious and seeps of NOLa soul. As if he didn't need any more musical support, here he gets periodical help from Lenny Kravitz, Jeff Beck, two of the aforementioned Nevilles and Rebirth (with his brother Glen). Yep Kid Rock is here too, though I can't say I'm a big fan of KR.

The CD comes with a booklet of track info and some photos. No real "liner notes". But, heck - in this case you are here for the music. I've had the CD a week and it's in constant rotation. Not something you want to listen to before bedtime though. You'll be up all night with the music going through your head.

Gotta get me some of that New Orleans water they are drinking!

As an old trombone player, I was excited to read the reviews about this disc and approached it full of positive expectation. I guess I was disappointed, not by the ability of the playing, but by the somewhat tedious nature of the music he chose. Sounded too close to techno stuff to me. A bit on the fluffy side. I wanted more depth, and didn't get it. Too bad for me, as I know from the reviews that lots of people out there think he is great.
