About the Album

Guitarist Bobby Broom has been turning heads ever since the release of his 1981 GRP Records debut, Clean Sweep. Twenty-five years and a lifetime of experience later, including stints with Sonny Rollins, Miles Davis, Kenny Burrell, Stanley Turrentine, Charles Earland and Dr. John, the 45-year-old guitarist is at the peak of his powers, swinging with authority and ingenuity on Song And Dance, his debut on Origin Records and his sixth overall as a leader. Along with bassist Dennis Carroll and drummer Kobie Watkins, the Chicago-based guitarist reinvents familiar pop and r&b staples from the '60's and '70's on this lively set while also contributing three affecting originals.
