NEW ORLEANS – His new CD “Parking Lot Symphony” drops just in time for Jazz Fest, but we’ve got a first listen to the new Trombone Shorty single for that CD. It’s called “Here Come The Girls.”

Complete with Shorty on vocals and a wicked Trombone solo, ‘Girls’ was written by Allen Toussaint and originally recorded by Ernie K-Doe.

The New York Times includes the single in today’s playlist and says “the drumming invokes marching bands, and the funk takes a decided turn toward New Orleans when the trombone solo arrives.”
