Trombone Shorty, Preservation Hall Jazz Band Bring NOLA to Late-Night TV (VIDEO)


New Orleans music is no stranger to late nights, but on Wednesday a pair of our finest players aimed to please even those who stayed home. The boob tube offered a twofer of local musicians on the late-night talk shows, as Trombone Shorty played Leno, and Preservation Hall Jazz Band got their mojo working on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Click through for video.

 

Preservation Hall Jazz Band is on a seemingly unstoppable hot streak over the past few years, and their star is only rising in the wake of the June release of their cameo-packed new album, That's It. On Jimmy Kimmel Live, the band performed the titular track, and a dance circle broke out just like it was a Sunday under Claiborne bridge (well, sort of...)

 

Over on NBC, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno was already winning when they brought Charlie Sheen into the mix. But the Tiger Blood gave way to "Fire and Brimstone" from the stage. Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue are fresh off the Tuesday release of Say That to Say This, and played the aforementioned single to the delight of Jay and all his fans at home. Here's the clip, via Hulu:
