Donald Fagen and Walter Becker do not suffer fools gladly.Matter of fact, they do not suffer fools at all. Never have and probably never will.

Bobby Broom, recently named for the third year in a row as one of the DownBeat Critics Poll’s top Jazz guitarists in the world, releases his 11th album on August 19th! PRE-ORDER your CD or PRE-ORDER your MP3 now at Amazon and at iTunes NOW!
A stellar release of sophistication and elegance.
The aptly titled “My Shining Hour” is indeed Bobby Broom at his very best!
My Shining Hour is far more than one more artist taking the easy way out by banging out a selection of tunes from the Great American Songbook. Bobby Broom doesn’t play covers, he reinvents and meticulously manipulates melodies to find a new way of looking at some time tested classics. To call some of these selections “eclectic” would be the equivalent of beating the proverbial harmonic dead horse. To call some of these selections modern adaptations of American classics would be spot on.
The release is expected August 19th.
