Trombone on James Andrews (NOLA) upcoming album (prod. Brian Jay)

James Andrews
I'm happy to be on a few tracks from James Andrews' upcoming album, "The Big Time Stuff". James is Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews' older brother, and is a real veteran of the NOLA scene. This was recorded in Brian Jay's (Pimps of Joytime) home studio.

Tracks: "Keep That Music Playin" feat. Cyril Neville, "Ghetto Funk Music" feat. Monk B, "Take A Little Trip"

Trombone, Solo on Ikebe Shakedown's "No Answer" (prod. Dunham Studios)

My solo starts at around 2:16, this tune was written by Robin Schmidt, taken from our debut EP "Hard Steppin". Recorded live at Dunham Studios (Budos Band, Menahan Street Band, Mark Ronson, Cee Lo, etc), this was the first take of the day.

Trombone on Navegante's "Rebel Ship Rock"

Skip to 1:00 to hear da horns.  Extra credit if you can name the Fela tune this horn line is "inspired by"

Trombone on Ritz Superbowl Commerical (prod. Wyclef Jean)

Recording w/Wyclef Jean at Platinum Sound
If you skip to :20 you'll hear the cover of EWF's "Lets Groove" I recorded with Wyclef Jean for Ritz Crackers. I went to this recording session straight from my first tour with The Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, and I remember feeling pretty damn happy that night!

Trombone/Sousaphone on "Pilot Talk 2" (Curren$y, Ski Beatz prod.)

I'm proud to be on this Curren$y track "Highed Up", produced by Ski Beatz.  Curren$y has some serious momentum going, and Ski Beatz produced most of Jay-Z's "Reasonable Doubt", which was a huge album for me.
