Fiona's Comments

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.

About the Album

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).

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.
