One more thing I'm liking

Trombone Shorty.  If you like rock, jazz, hip hop, or funk, especially when all mixed in a blender, this is for you.  This guy is super talented and entertaining, I've seen him twice in concert.  He does this circle breathing thing where he'll play one note on his trumpet for minutes and minutes (you can find videos online easily).  As my brother the musician wondered, "How does he write catchy hook after catchy hook?"  His album Backatown is my favorite of the three I have, but they are all tons of fun.  You can't be in a bad mood while listening to this music.  His band is great, too.
