Over the last three decades Bobby Broom has played with the giants, including a long stint with Sonny Rollins and a short one with Miles Davis. But there's more room to showcase his mastery of the jazz guitar on trio albums like Song and Dance. Broom's technique, reminiscent of Grant Green and Wes Montgomery, is put to good use on an unusual mix of standards ("Smile" and "You And The Night And The Music"), recent pop tunes ("Where Is The Love" and "Can't Buy Me Love"), and originals. The quality is consistent, but it's Broom's originals that steal the show. "Blues For Modern Man," an up-tempo romp, and "Waiting And Waiting," a beautiful ballad, bring out the full range of his technique, mixing chords and lead seamlessly while shaping the intricate melodies. Kobie Watkins (drums) and Dennis Carroll (bass) provide just the right kick behind Broom.
