Press: allmusic.com: Derrick Shezbie

Shezbie’s been playing music in New Orleans since he was a kid. He started off playing drums, but quickly switched to trumpet. He earned his chops playing in clubs all around the city, but his biggest advances likely came through playing with the veteran members of the Rebirth Brass Band.

He has a classic brass band trumpet player style, and his flamboyant licks are easily recognizable–although some might call them more Rebirth licks. Whether it’s Derek’s own sound coming through might require you to dig a little deeper and go as far back as 1994 when Shezbie released Spodie’s Back.
