MUSIC REVIEW BY John Barron, The Jazz Word

Chicago-based Guitarist Bobby Broom pays tribute to his childhood upbringing in New York with Upper West Side Story, his first recording of all original material with longtime trio mates Dennis Carroll on upright bass and drummers Kobe Watkins and Makaya McCraven.
Broom is in top form throughout, unfolding horn-like lines that are full of surprise, yet characteristically soulful. The disc's nine tunes range from straight-eighth rock and Latin grooves to burning swing, and Broom adjusts with subtle fluidity. The change of pace between the high-flying tribute to the late bassist Charles Fambrough, "Fambroscious (For Fambrough)," and the more relaxed groove on "Father" showcases Broom's inventive and supple approach to improvisation.
