Ever since he was a small child in New Orleans, Troy Andrews, better known by his stage name Trombone Shorty, has been surrounded by jazz music. Dude began playing trombone at the age of four and has hardly looked back, through the years forging a successful musical career.

It’s no wonder, given this long history, that Andrews has a reputation as one of the finest young jazzmen around, with the kind of ear for the style that you might expect from someone who has lived it all his life. Despite the fact that he’s only 31 years old, Andrews has released and/or been a part of a ton of albums, has earned the respect of old and new jazz heads alike, has garnered a reputation as a beacon of New Orleans culture, and has often dedicated his talents to his philanthropic interests.

As is the case with all great jazz players, no two Trombone Shorty shows are alike. So, don’t miss your chance to experience a one-of-a-kind concert this Friday.

September, 15, $29.50-$35, 7pm, The Aztec Theatre, 104 N. St. Mary’s St., (210) 812-4355, theaztectheatre.com.
