TROMBONE SHORTY TO RELEASE BLUE NOTE DEBUT "PARKING LOT SYMPHONY" 4/28

TROMBONE SHORTY TO RELEASE BLUE NOTE DEBUT

March 3 2017

Trombone Shorty has announced an April 28 release date for Parking Lot Symphony, his debut album for Blue Note Records. The album pre-order launched today along with the irrepressible first single “Here Come The Girls,” which is available now to download or stream. The album is a 12-track tour de force produced by Chris Seefried (Fitz and the Tantrums, Andra Day) featuring 10 new original songs along with covers of Allen Toussaint (“Here Come The Girls”) and The Meters (“It Ain’t No Use”). True to its title, the album contains multitudes of sound—from brass band blare and deep-groove funk to bluesy beauty and hip-hop/pop swagger—and plenty of emotion all anchored, of course, by stellar playing and the idea that, even in the toughest of times, as he says, “Music brings unity.”

Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue have also announced new tour dates including album release shows at the Bowery Ballroom in NYC on April 24, and their annual Treme Threauxdown at the Saenger Theatre in New Orleans on April 29 that will feature special guests including Andra Day and Preservation Hall Jazz Band. The band is currently out on an extensive tour opening for Red Hot Chili Peppers including sold-out shows at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on March 7, 8 and 10. Trombone Shorty will also perform at the 2017 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, where he has inherited the festival’s prestigious closing set in the legacy of great New Orleans artists like the Neville Brothers and Professor Longhair. A summer co-headline tour with St. Paul & The Broken Bones will include a performance at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on August. 30.
