Trombone Shorty BSW1170

US$19.95

"Where y'at?" Troy Andrews, aka Trombone Shorty, opens his book with this phrase, letting readers know that it's New Orleans parlance for hello. In this stunning picture book autobiography, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Andrews shares the story of his early years growing up in the Tremé neighborhood of New Orleans. Andrews desperately wished to emulate the musicians in his family and those he saw performing all over his city, so he and his friends made their own instruments out of found materials, played in the streets, and marched with bands. When one day he found a battered, discarded trombone bigger than he was, Andrews finally had a real instrument to play, and he practiced day and night, acquiring the nickname Trombone Shorty from his older brother. The moment Bo Diddley pulled Andrews on stage to play with him during the New Orleans jazz festival was a turning point, and he hasn't stopped performing since.

一个叫外号叫“长号矮子”的男孩讲述了他的外号来历的故事,以及他是如何成长为一名爵士乐音乐人的传奇经历。

“长号矮子”原名特洛伊·安德鲁斯,他出生于美国新奥尔良,爵士乐的发源地。他的童年生活深受音乐的影响,每年的音乐狂欢节是小镇*重要的节日之一。热爱音乐的特洛伊偶然捡到一把别人不要的长号,他每天带着这把比自己还要高的长号刻苦努力地练习,并因此得到了“长号矮子”的外号,以及和殿堂级爵士乐音乐人波·迪德利合奏的机会。

在这本自传绘本中,特洛伊回忆了他童年生活中他深爱的家乡新奥尔良的关于爵士乐的故事。通过科利尔的绘画和拼贴插画,故事的真实性,和发自作者内心的声音被巧妙地融为一体。
