The ten best concerts this weekend: Dec. 28-30
6. TROMBONE SHORTY @ OGDEN THEATRE | FRI, 12/28/12
On the Grammy-nominated Backatown, Trombone Shorty (aka Troy Andrews) packs punchy blasts of horn-driven instrumentals that marry second-line rhythms with R&B and hip-hop. Backatown -- which shot to number one on the Billboard jazz charts immediately upon its release in April 2010, staying there for nine weeks before climbing back on top early this year -- wraps New Orleans traditions in the brand of contemporary trappings that appeal to people the same age as Andrews.
