Loyola press release - November 11, 2013
New Orleans trombonist and composer Rick Trolsen will lead his alternative jazz/rock combo, Neslort, in a Jazz Underground concert at Loyola University New Orleans Thursday, Nov. 14 at 7:30 p.m. in Satchmo’s, located in the basement of the Danna Student Center on the university’s main campus.
Tickets are $10 for general admission, $5 for Loyola faculty and staff, and free for Loyola students. Tickets are available online, by calling 504-865-2074, or at the door 30 minutes prior to the performance. Free parking is available in the West Road Garage, accessible from St. Charles Avenue.
Formerly a member of the standout brass band Bonerama, trombone wizard Trolsen has performed at festivals and nightclubs across the U.S. His popular band Neslort is a mainstay of the New Orleans jazz scene, and their recent album, “Mystical Scam,” features songs inspired by the state of the world today.
“The music of Neslort pulls from straight-ahead rock, Middle Eastern music, jazz and funk, as well as group improvisations scattered in amongst the compositions. The music is fun, exhilarating, challenging and new,” said freelance music columnist Zircoff Mata.
