Fox Sports New Orleans to unveil new segment featuring Trombone Shorty and Alvin Gentry

Following up their successful premiere of the 2015-16 Pelicans anthem, "You and I (Outta This Place)," tonight's feature will focus on the New Orleans neighborhood of Treme.

As promised before the start of the season, Fox Sports New Orleans will release a second feature that involves Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews and Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry before the start of their game tonight against the Dallas Mavericks.

This piece will center on Trombone Shorty discussing his hometown of Treme with Gentry. They will broach such topics as the importance of the music from this area to how professional sports, in particular NBA basketball, relate to musicians. Troy takes Gentry to the building in which he was raised and his mother's lounge where he performed in front of audiences as a child.

Later in the segment, Troy plays a riff on his trombone of Anthony Davis running up the floor in transition and finishing the play with a thunderous dunk. At the conclusion, we see both Gentry and Trombone Shorty display accurate jumpshots, something the current roster could certainly use more of.

Without further ado, below is the extended clip directed by Michael Hayden and produced by Laura Mickelson and Bob Steinfeld that will be aired later tonight on Fox Sports New Orleans.
