For years, listeners identified Chicago guitarist Bobby Broom with the Deep Blue Organ Trio, a soulful organization featuring him with organist Chris Foreman and drummer Greg Rockingham.
Their appearances at the Green Mill Jazz Club and elsewhere built a large and loyal following in Chicago and beyond, the three having achieved a degree of synchronicity and mutual intuitiveness not routinely encountered.
But like many long-running ensembles, Deep Blue eventually disbanded, leaving Broom to put together another band when Steely Dan invited him to serve as opening act for a 2014 tour. Ever since, Broom has been championing his new Organi-Sation, which played the Green Mill Jazz Club successfully last summer and opened a still more impressive four-night engagement Thursday evening at the Jazz Showcase.

In a career spanning three decades, guitarist Bobby Broom has embodied the truism that it’s the player not the tune that makes for a memorable performance in jazz. Performing as a sideman with legendary artists such as Sonny Rollin’s, Miles Davis, Kenny Burrell, Stanley Turrentine and Dr. John, just to name a few, while also constantly touring and recording with his own groups, Broom is always pushing his playing and his concepts to new heights.
Starting tonight (December 3rd) through Sunday (December 6th), he will be performing with his trio at Joe & Wayne Segal’s Jazz Showcase in Chicago. We caught up with him ahead of this weekend’s performances to talk about his life in music, his concepts on playing and what he has in store for the listeners this weekend…
#MagicMondays with The Bobby Broom Trio have been extended through December! Sets at 5p & 7p. at Andy’s Jazz Club in Chicago!
