Artist: Trombone Shorty
This is an album that’s great for many occasions, especially ones where you just want to have some fun: grilling in the backyard with a beer in your hand, hanging out in the house, or doing some daytime driving. There’s so much style, personality, and pop in Backatown that it will put an involuntary pep in your step, and you’ll love it. Trombone Shorty is a New Orleans musician (and actor, producer, and philanthropist) whose music mixes genres of jazz, funk, and hip hop, then throws in about ten teaspoons of muscle and swagger. Check him out, go see him live, and put this on your Bluetooth speaker the next time you are enjoying some sun.
