New Album From Trombone Shorty, Lifted, Arrives April 29th, First Single Out Now

New Orleans maestro Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews is releasing his first album in five years on Blue Note Records titled Lifted

It will be released the first day of Jazz Fest in New Orleans as Shorty has typically closed out the Festival on the last Sunday of the event. 

RtBE have been fans of Shorty's since we first heard him way back in 2008, joyously attended his first three ShortyFest's and multiple live shows.  We have reviewed all of his albums since ((his first, Backatown is still his best) and while his studio releases have been good, they have yet to capture his dynamic stage show. Shorty seems to know this, in regards to Lifted he has stated:
“I think Lifted is the closest we’ve ever gotten to bottling up the live show and putting it on a record. This time around I told everybody to really cut loose, to perform like they were onstage at a festival.”
The first single from the new album "Come Back" has been released.  You can hear it below:
