This just in… For a vibrant preview of one of the highlight acts playing the Spotlight Lexington festival in September, tune in or record The Late Show with David Letterman tonight. They will be re-running a program from earlier this month featuring new generation New Orleans groove merchant Trombone Shorty.

A versed trombonist (obviously) and trumpeter, Shorty – known in real life as Troy Andrews – merges New Orleans jazz tradition with modern funk, hip hop and pop. He was also featured in several episodes of the acclaimed HBO series Treme, a drama set in post-Hurricane Katrina New Orleans.

If his current Backatown album is any indication, we will be in for quite the celebration when Shorty and his Orleans Avenue band play a free 7:30 p.m. performance downtown for Spotlight Lexington on Sunday evening, Sept. 26.

The Late Show with David Letterman airs tonight at 11:35 p.m. on NBC (WLEX-TV).
