Andrews and his bandmates, Orleans Avenue, spent nearly an hour effortlessly leap-frogging among nimble jazz, classic New Orleans brass, viscous funk, silky soul — they even puffed their chests out for a take on Lil Wayne’s “Lollipop.”

But audience members didn’t move their leaden feet until Andrews and company fled the stage and ventured out into the field for a grand finale march. As the musicians paraded up the hill bleating righteously, fans swarmed around them, flashing camera phones, big smiles and the dance moves they should have been putting to use all along.

Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews will be the musical director for the world premiere of Red Hot + New Orleans on December 3 and 4, 2010 at BAM. The evening will feature the music of the Big Easy and the talents of such New Orleans luminaries as: Dr. John, Ledisi, Marc Broussard, Partners-N-Crime, Kermit Ruffins and Irma Thomas.
