Nice up-tempo piece that simmers with the blues. Broom's foray into recording original material is a successful one. The entire album is solid.
After 30 years of critically acclaimed recordings featuring compositions of the jazz and pop world's greatest writers, guitarist Bobby Broom releases Upper West Side Story, his first recording of entirely original compositions. Providing a most intimate look at Broom's musical personality and the trio's fully developed group chemistry, the tunes reflect a wide range of influences across a spectrum of genres while always remaining deep in the tradition of the modern jazz guitarist. Included is the first studio recording of Broom's "D's Blues," of which a live video has been a fan favorite online for several years. Personnel: Bobby Broom (guitar), Dennis Carroll (bass), and Kobie Watkins (drums).
