Dave Specter's Adventures Guitar Series with Bobby Broom
Dave Specter's Adventures in Guitar series, which has been running at SPACE for the past seven years, has featured some of the finest talents in blues and jazz including Jimmy Johnson, Lurrie Bell, John Primer, Steve Freund, Jeff Parker, Donald Kinsey, Tad Robinson, Sharon Lewis, Billy Flynn, Rockin' Johnny, Nick Moss, Rick Holmstrom and Eddie Shaw.
In a career spanning three decades, preeminent guitarist Bobby Broom has embodied the truism that it’s the player not the tune that makes for a memorable performance in jazz. After years as an elite sideman with the likes of Sonny Rollins, Stanley Turrentine, and Dr. John, Broom reintroduced himself to the jazz world with Stand! (2001), a brilliant foray into the pop music he grew up hearing in the 1960s and ’70s. In his subsequent releases he’s demonstrated a keen ear for rarely played material, a gift for composing evocative tunes, and impressive facility with the knotty rhythmic puzzles of Thelonious Monk, which is what makes his new album My Shining Hour such an unexpected revelation. The luxuriantly melodic session features Broom’s working trio focusing on beloved American Songbook standards.
