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.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
