The 2011 album this most resembles is funk-rock guitarist Dennis Coffey's self-titled comeback album--a bunch of pretty good soul workouts with lots of guests, some filler, and just enough personality to get by.
None of those songs are as badass as the go-go-flavored "Buckjump," the surf-guitar-spiked title track or the two "Lagniappe" digressions, instrumentals all. When the horns blow, it's all you need to know.
High profile fans like Jeff Beck, Kid Rock and Warren Haynes help trombone shorty create what he calling "supafunk rock," a decidedly unsexy, sub-Chili Peppers amalgam with pointless horn riffs. [Nov 2011, p.98]
