New Orleans musician Troy Andrews, aka Trombone Shorty, is only 29 years old, but he's been leading bands and touring for more than two decades. Now one of the Crescent City's most recognizable musicians, Andrews plays a dizzying number of gigs every year with Orleans Avenue, his band, and spends his off nights sitting in with the likes of Prince and Dave Grohl, who featured him on an episode of his HBO series "Sonic Highways."

When hip-hop, reducible (in theory only) to an emcee and DJ, collides with live instruments, the mixture is often combustible, from "Rapper's Delight" and "The Breaks" to most of the Roots' recorded output, or Earl Sweatshirt performing with BadBadNotGood.

Guitarist Jeff Howard was still in middle school when his band, the McLovins, shot video footage of themselves performing "You Enjoy Myself," a difficult, multi-part composition by Phish, and uploaded it to YouTube.

In theory, recording an album is easy: reserve studio time, jam until you've got 12 songs together that sound good, and pack it in.

Over the past two decades, guitar hero Al Di Meola has spent much of his time working out musical ideas on European audiences, using acoustic guitars exclusively while surrounding himself with some of the best jazz and world-music talent on the continent.
