[NEW NEW ORLEANS] For all its historical significance as the seedbed of American music, contemporary New Orleans music (with exceptions like the Neville Brothers) has too often come off like the soundtrack to a theme park or historical museum. Young Tremé native Troy Andrews, who got his start via a documentary tribute to Louis Armstrong, refused to get trapped by his hometown's storied past, nor by the genres it has spawned. As Trombone Shorty, he's played his horn and sung with everyone from Lenny Kravitz to Eric Clapton to Cee Lo to Dr. John. His double-sax-fueled band Orleans Avenue mixes rootsy R&B, funk, hip-hop, rock, and jazz elements so adroitly he's actually more of a throwback to the Big Easy's original concept of being a spicy musical gumbo. Opening N.O. funksters Galactic would be worthy headliners themselves on this tasty double bill.
