    He's fun to watch and great to listen to. I especially like it when he shows up at Blues festivals. Would like to catch him live .....

    Well I was going to post a link of Shorty and Orleans avenue playing the entirety of Backatown on Youtube on the Austin City Limits broadcast, but I guess they've taken it down now. Bummer, if you ever get the chance, check out that video, amazing amazing playing. Shorty kills it, and his band just smokes.

    Checked out his website. He is coming to Charlotte Nov3rd. I put in for vacation that Thursday night so I am pretty sure I am going to be there. :D That will be perfect too. My normal nights off are Friday and Saturday. That will give me all weekend to practice using the inspiration I pickup that night.

    He may go down as one of more versatile musicians of our time. He's a regular on the late night shows, appeared on Treme this last season on HBO. Really a fine musician and by all accounts a nice young man

    Makes me want to start watching TV again. That is when I am not practicing.

    GO SEE HIM!!!
    I saw him at the Blind Willie McTell Blues Festival and he was a monster!! They played for 2 hours
    and whipped the crowd into a frenzy...most impressive....
    he can play a trumpet as well as the trombone
