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.
So it was really no surprise when jazz guitarist supreme Bobby Broom was tabbed to open up Steely Dan’s Jamalot Ever After Summer 2014 Tour.
The tour pulled into the still brand-spanking new Walmart Arkansas Music Pavilion (AMP) in Rogers, Ar., on a perfect July 24 evening and Broom and his Organi-Sation hit the ground running.

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.

While Bobby Broom’s 2012 CD Upper West Side Story (“a spectacular album” —DownBeat) focused exclusively on original material, the guitarist takes a very different tack with My Shining Hour, due for August 19 release from Origin Records.
