On his fourth studio effort and first for Blue Note Records, 2017's Parking Lot Symphony, New Orleans singer, songwriter, and brass wizard Troy Andrews (aka Trombone Shorty) fully embraces the organic '70s-style R&B he’s heretofore only touched on. Ever since officially debuting in 2010 with Backatown, Andrews has moved ever closer to that '70s soul aesthetic with each subsequent album. Backatown even featured contributions from both Lenny Kravitz and legendary New Orleans pianist Allen Toussaint. In fact, his previous effort, 2013's Say That to Say This, had a similarly old-school bent courtesy of neo-soul master and co-producer Raphael Saadiq. But for Parking Lot Symphony, Andrews dives into the sound full-force, paired with producer Chris Seefried (Fitz & the Tantrums, Haley Reinhart, Andra Day) on a set of songs that bring to mind the earthy, vinyl-laden vibe of '70s artists like New Orleans own the Meters..

The ruff raspy voice of Danny Blues is unique and his style is very cool. His music has a wide range form easy good time blues to Rockin' Blues and Rock&Roll. For example "Sunny Side Of The Blues" is easy laid back style, and "Down At The Luau" is so rockin you can't sit still. "Wonderful World" is a beautiful duet with special guest singer Suzanah Free, this song will put chills up your spin from the angelic voice of Suzanah Free.
Fun feel good blues, and Rock&Roll to dance with at your party or just listen…
