MUSIC REVIEW BY Jack Garner, Rochester Democrat & Chronicle

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

The veteran jazz guitarist (and frequent accompaniment for Dr. John and Sonny Rollins) brings his unique touch as a leader to an impressive range of songs from outside the "typical" jazz spectrum. With masterful skill, he reinvents the Beatles' "Can't Buy Me Love" as a swing romp, even finding ways to echo "A Love Supreme." "Where is the Love" gets a lyrical ballad treatment, while he and his rhythm section hop and skip through the theme to the Little Rascals, of all things. Continuing the old movie mood, Broom also floats lightly over the Charlie Chaplin classic, "Smile." Meanwhile, Jimmy Webb's "Wichita Lineman," which usually sustains itself with its brilliant lyrics, stands alone here on melody and harmony, thanks to Broom's sweeping skill. (Sorry, couldn't resist.)
