Daytrotter: Trombone Shorty

I just returned from a quick weekend on the left coast. Before I left, I read about some new changes to Daytrotter. They’ve added live streaming (and HD video!) of their in-studios, gotten rid of ads, upped the sessions to THREE per day, and doubled the quality of their streams and downloads. With all this, they’re asking for support from users…a membership is now just $2 per month. With so much great live music every day, I’m definitely signing on to this, and I’ll continue to pass word along about great sessions. They’ve got a free 7 day trial too, so enjoy the tunes while you can if you don’t want to sign up. Today I was impressed by the polished sound of Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue:

Song Of The Day

Trombone Shorty – “Do To Me”

The more I hear this tune, the more it makes me move. It’s SO FUNKY and the horn and guitar parts create such a great build up. The words are catchy and it seems like the band is probably having just as much fun playing this one as we are listening. The video is simple and fun…it’s just too bad Jeff Beck couldn’t be in it :) but that guitar solo IS killer.

I was in dire need of a summer mix to listen to in my car now that the weather is gorgeous and my windows are always rolled down. I made this the other day and I’m thrilled with the energy of it. A good summer mix can make you feel like you’re driving to the beach when you’re running errands or driving to work. BONUS: It’s a great mix for working out as well…
