NEW YORK (NY) – Bobby Broom was named to the 63rd Annual DownBeat Critics Poll as one of the world’s twenty top Jazz guitarists. This is his fourth time in a row on the DownBeat poll of top jazz critics.
“It’s very cool to be acknowledged in this way by the publication that helped start it all for me,” said Broom. “Thank you to the DownBeat critics.”
Broom’s 2014 album with the Bobby Broom Trio, “My Shining Hour,” was the #39 album in America last year, according to JazzWeek.
Ever one to keep shaking things up a bit, Bobby will be playing at the Green Mill in Chicago with his organ trio, the Bobby Broom OrganiSation, which toured North America with Steely Dan last summer. It has been rumored that Broom is considering doing his next album with the organ trio.
