Bobby Broom

Credited as "an articulate and compelling soloist who has developed his own voice within the tradition of Montgomery, Burrell, etc.," jazz guitarist Bobby Broom was born on January 18, 1961, and raised in New York City. Introduced to jazz at early age (via Charles Earland's 1971 Black Talk), Broom took up the guitar shortly thereafter, resulting in playing in off-Broadway productions, gigs with Charlie Parker alumni pianists Al Haig and Walter Bishop, Jr., and an invitation to join Sonny Rollins' band (he had to turn down the latter, choosing to listen to his parents' advice and complete high school before pursuing music full-time). After attending the renowned Berklee College of Music in Boston, Broom returned to New York, where he worked with Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, trumpeters Tom Browne and Hugh Masakela, and pianist Dave Grusin before issuing his first solo album, 1981's Clean Sweep.

In 1982, several years after his initial invitation from Sonny Rollins, Broom would rejoin him to work with the jazz legend for five years of touring and the recordings No Problem and Reel Life. In 1987, Broom worked with Kenny Burrell in his Jazz Guitar Band and recorded Generation live at the Village Vanguard for Blue Note Records. That same year he was also invited to join Miles Davis' band, which lasted for a handful of performances. Broom relocated to Chicago in 1984, where he would eventually form his own trio and co-lead the Deep Blue Organ Trio (with Chris Foreman and Greg Rockingham). It was also where he would come full circle in meeting and working with Charles Earland, another newly transplanted Chicago resident. Together they recorded Front Burner and Third Degree Burn. Just before his untimely death in 1999, Earland had planned to form a trio with Broom and drummer Rockingham. During the '90s Broom collaborated with Dr. John, touring and making recordings, including Duke Elegant, which he co-produced.

Over the years Broom also became active in jazz education, beginning in 1982 when he taught for Jackie McLean's jazz program at the University of Hartford. He completed graduate work in jazz pedagogy at Northwestern University in 2005, and teaches at DePaul University. Also in 2005, after 20 years, Broom resumed work with his old boss and mentor Sonny Rollins. Bobby Broom's notable recordings include No Hype Blues (1995), Waitin' and Waitin' (1997), Modern Man and Stand! (both 2001), and the Deep Blue Organ Trio's Deep Blue Bruise and Goin' to Town. ~ Greg Prato & Sean Westergaard, Rovi

Someone is challenging me to a trivia debate and I'm
telling her that this is NOT the Bobby Brown that
hooked up with Whitney Huston. Anybody know for sure?
I mean, please tell me that this guy is not him, the
no-talent woman abuser. Standing by...
