On Sept. 10, Trombone Shorty released “Say That to Say This,” his third national album for Verve Forecast. He has toured around the world nearly non-stop for the past three years, making appearances at major festivals and at such notable events as a White House concert that also featured musical legends Mick Jagger, Jeff Beck and B.B. King. His “Tonight Show” performance is another step in the promotions for his new album, as was his performance of the national anthem at the Saints’ home opener against the Atlanta Falcons in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome this past weekend.
Trombone Shorty's latest album, the Raphael Saadiq-produced "Say That To Say This," which hit stores on Sept. 3, is his third release for the Verve Forecast label with his Orleans Avenue band.
