From Bam Magazine, this review of the Bobby Broom Organi-Sation concert in Concord, CA earlier this summer:
“Bobby Broom’s Organi-Sation opened the concert just prior to 8pm, while most of the crowd were still ordering from concession stands or finding parking. The New York jazz guitarist has played gigs with legends like Miles Davis, Dr. Lonnie Smith, and Art Blakey. His slow, dreamy interpretation of Clapton’s “Layla,” including the dramatic second section, was pleasantly brilliant.”

Latest review of The Bobby Broom Organi-Sation is in from MusikFest in Bethlehem:
“The Bobby Broom Organi-Sation opened the night, and delivered a brisk 30-minute set… In the all-instrumental set, Broom brilliantly played the phrasing necessary to lay out the framework of the familiar songs, before going somewhere completely new and clearly enjoying the ride as much as any of the seated listeners.”

If you’ve showed up for Steely Dan’s continuing Jamalot Ever After tour on time, then you are already familiar with the great tone and texture of opening act Bobby Broom, the Chicago-based guitarist. Curious to hear more? Here’s your chance.
With his largest release, My Shining Hour, Broom forgoes expressive original compositions like those on his most recent album, 2012’s Upper West Side Story — focusing instead on jazz standards. A jazzer with a wide musical vocabulary, Broom deploys his stellar and versatile band of bassist Dennis Carroll and drummer Makaya McCraven with the cunning of an insane genius. The results are gorgeous, respectful of the originals and often jaw dropping in their emotional punch. Amazing, considering the album was recorded in three days at Shirk studios in Chicago by engineers Anthony Gravino and Jonathan Horwich.

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.
