Trombone Shorty & Mavis Staples

Price: $56

When: Ended 07/21/13

Where: Minnesota Zoo

Here’s a less than obvious but inspired pairing: jazzy New Orleans party man Trombone Shorty and gospelly Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Mavis Staples. The celebrated lead voice of the Staple Singers (“Respect Yourself,” “I’ll Take You There”) just released another splendid album produced by Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, the stripped down and deeply spiritual “One True Vine.” Leader of his own high-energy jazz-rock-funk Orleans Avenue band, Trombone Shorty is also an in-demand trombonist and trumpeter who played on recent albums by Rod Stewart, Cee-Lo Green and Zac Brown Band.
