The quintessential New Orleans trumpet player and singer, along with brother Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews, comes from a long line of musicians going back to Louis Armstrong’s band and the early days of jazz in the city. Shepherded as a youth by grandfather Jessie “Ooh Poo Pa Doo” Hill and brass band mentor Danny Barker, he grew up around Fats Domino as well as Allen Toussaint and Dr. John, who produced and played on his debut record, “Satchmo of the Ghetto.” His exploits in the penthouses of the elite and recent soiree with visiting French president Macron haven’t spoiled him. He still gets down and dirty with the Troubled Men.
Topics include the new year, pedicures, a slouch alarm, technology, recent deaths, dinner conversation, playing for George Bush, Dooky Chase, school days, the brass band revival, Tamborine and Fan, hustling tourists, tap dancing, a lucky number, a prior meeting, eating squirrel, Prince La La, a hotshot, the Lastie family, sage advice, being nice, Kevin O’Day, the Crescent City All Stars, private parties, a miniature kangaroo, a petting zoo, a new festival, and much more.
Intro music: "Just Keeps Raining" by Styler/Coman
Break and Outro Music: "I Bet You A Dollar" and "Ghetto Funk Music (featuring Big Chief Monk Boudreaux)" from "The Big Time Stuff" by James Andrews
