Glen David Andrews New Orleans trombonist and vocalist Glen David Andrews (pictured) is coming to St. Louis to play on Wednesday, March 9 at The Gramophone.

Andrews, a protege of New Orleans legend Anthony “Tuba Fats" Lacen; cousin of Troy “Trombone Shorty" Andrews; and brother of Rebirth Brass Band's Derrick Tabb; is steeped in the city's traditional jazz and gospel sounds. He often performs old jazz standards and hymns along with his own compositions in a show that incorporates jazz, gospel, rock, blues and funk. Andrews appeared last year in the HBO television series Treme, and already has filmed two additional episodes for the upcoming season.

Jazz journalist Pamela Espelund, who writes the Minneapolis/St. Paul jazz blog Bebopified, was quite enthusiastic about Andrews' Twin Cities show at the Dakota last July, saying that “It may have been the most raucous night in the 25-year history of the Dakota, including both locations. It's the only time I've felt the floor move."

Updated㬈:00 a.m., 2/2/11: Doors will open at 8:00 p.m., and showtime is 9:00 p.m.. Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 day of show, $23 for ages 18-21, and can be purchased via The Gramophone's website. (Scroll down to find the listing for March 9.)

In the meantime, in the embedded video window below you can check out Andrews performing “Just A Closer Walk With Thee," from his 2009 CD Walking Through Heaven's Gate, which was recorded live in 2008 at Zion Hill Baptist Church in the Treme neighborhood of New Orleans.
