Funky day

April 16, 2023

Today’s music theme at Jim’s Song Lyric Sunday is Funk so here’s a song by Trombone Shorty.

Wikipedia says:
Troy Andrews (born January 2, 1986), also known by the stage name Trombone Shorty, is an American musician, producer, and philanthropist from New Orleans, Louisiana. He is best known as a trombone and trumpet player but also plays drums, organ, and tuba. He has worked with some of the biggest names in rock, pop, jazz, funk, and hip hop. Andrews is the younger brother of trumpeter and bandleader James Andrews III and the grandson of singer and songwriter Jessie Hill. Andrews began playing trombone at age four, and since 2009 has toured with his own band, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue.

I say:
It doesn’t matter what he’s playing, if you give the keys to Trombone Shorty then you’re gonna enjoy the ride.

I left off the lyrics because what I found online weren’t an exact match to the live version below. And honestly, it’s more fun watching him and the band than it is reading lyrics.

Funk the talk, let’s listen. And if you ever get a chance to catch a rebroadcast of the Austin City Limits show this song is taken from, check it out. It’s (to use a word that people half my age use to mean “cool”) sick.
