James Andrews & Nice-Orleans Jazz Orchestra
A child of New-Orleans, James Andrews has music running through his veins, and a little Cherokee too. Brother of the famous musician Trombone Shorty, like him he was immersed in the world of music right from childhood. Tap-dancing in the French Quarter from the age of 7, “Second Line” trumpet-playing in the parades at the age of 12… On Jackson Square, in Danny Barker’s band - who taught him the basics of traditional jazz - he played the drums, then the trumpet before forming a band of his own, the “New Birth Brass Band”. First recording: « Satchmo Of The Ghetto », produced by Allen Toussaint in 1998.
Made popular by his appearances in the « Treme » series on channel HBO and his contribution to the sound track nominated for the 2011 Grammy Awards, James Andrews, one of the best musicians of New Orleans, very active on the international scene, transmits his wonderful energy to the public, accompanied by the great ensemble Nice-Orleans Jazz Orchestra. He will ensure a joyous and eclectic sound, a sound that is pure New Orleans: jazzy, a little Latin and invariably funky. An explosive mixture, a concentrated dose of the sounds in New Orleans today.
First concert in Juan
