Last night, Troy Andrews (a.k.a. Trombone Shorty) joined his “brother from another mother” and relatively frequent collaborator, Jon Batiste and his Stay Human house band on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert for a rousing run through a New Orleans classic: “On Your Way Down” by the late Allen Toussaint.
This was not the first time that Andrews and Batiste have linked up on this stage to honor Toussaint’s prodigious body of work: This past summer, he rolled through the historic Ed Sullivan Theater, the current home of The Late Show, to play a revamped interpretation of classic 1970 Toussaint-penned ode to the fairer sex, “Here Come the Girls,” which was featured on Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue’s most recent release, April 2017’s Parking Lot Symphony. Both the album as a whole and, in particular, his rendition of the Allen Toussaint favorite, received critical acclaim
