Troy Andrews grew up in the Treme neighborhood of New Orleans where money was sparse but music flowed in the streets. He picked up a discarded trombone when he was very little hoping to join in tune with the many musicians in his family. His brother saw him carrying an instrument larger than he was, and dubbed him Trombone Shorty. Trombone Shorty did join in whenever he could, including a Bo Diddley concert at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, and he played so well that the famous musician brought him on stage. This colorful book shares the story of a Grammy nominated musician whose dream came true with a little practice and passion.
