Audrey Ochoa is one of the most powerful trombonists in North America. Affectionately dubbed “Canada’s Trombone Shorty,” it’s rare to hear a player of her intensity on the instrument. Audrey’s latest album Afterthought (Chronograph Records), is an extension of her compositional skill and talent on her instrument. It reached #1 in Canada and hit the top 20 in the US.
