Trombone Shorty – Closing out the proceedings in high-voltage New Orleans style.

In the event you wanted to go to Jazz Fest in New Orleans, but couldn’t swing the airfare, had a domestic emergency or just spaced-out and forgot, here’s one you can’t forget.

It was a good one. And Jazz Fest has become the prototype for which most Festivals (at least around the U.S.) are doing it this year. With so many bands and so much good music, it’s a feast that is probably best savored over a two-week period, as digesting it all in two days would be nothing short of overdose – and if you’re like me, would probably be laying in a heap in the middle of the proceedings with an exploded head, not figuring out where to go next.

But hell, this is brain food, and to hear someone like Trombone Shorty close the festival in 2013 with what had to be one of the most high-energy, non-stop, ripped-apart-and-put-back-together-again sets to be heard in a very long time is the essence of what the joy of music is all about.

A little over 90 minutes, one of the highlights of a festival which had an overabundance of highlights -we’re kicking off Backstage Pass in the best possible way.

If you aren’t familiar with one of the  up-and-coming legends of New Orleans, you just have to stop everything and turn this up.

And BTW – Trombone Shorty is currently on tour and just finished a gig at The Hollywood Bowl a few days ago.
