Famous trombone funk musician?

I've forgotten the name of this great trombonist who played funk. That's all I've got! Maybe if someone threw some names or clips at me.. thanks very much!

Trombone Shorty?

Response by poster: I was probably thinking of Fred Wesley, thanks! And Trombone Shorty is also a good one.

if you're interested in funky trombones, check out new orleans nightcrawlers and bonerama, both made oh-so-much-funkier by the presence of rick trolsen. (his 'main' band is neslort, but that focuses more on jazz than funk.

There's also Joseph Bowie (leader of Defunkt, and Lester Bowie's brother).
