After 30 years of critically acclaimed recordings featuring compositions of the jazz and pop world’s greatest writers, guitarist Bobby Broom releases his first recording of entirely original compositions.
“Upper West Side Story” provides a most intimate look at Broom’s musical personality and his trio’s fully developed group chemistry. Broom has played with bassist Dennis Carroll for many years, and his young drummer Kobie Watkins, grooves well with the seasoned sounds of his partners in the music.
Songs 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. This live video has been a fan favorite online for several years.
