MUSIC REVIEW BY George W. Harris, Jazz Weekly

Few guitarists these days possess an identifiable tone; Bobby Broom's one of the guys who does. He's been a perfect foil for tenor guys like Stanley Turrentine and Sonny Rollins, as his #2 pencil thin tone mixed with a duster of a strum is like a signature from a fountain pen.

Most of the standards here are taken at a joyful and midtempo lilt, making "My Ideal" more wistful than longing and "My Shining Hour" brimming with hope. The team of Makaya McCraven/dr and Dennis Carroll/b supply telepathic and spacious teamwork, with some impressive volleying between Broom and McCraven on a hip "Sweet Georgia Brown." A sauntering "Jitterbug Waltz" features Carroll's lucid bass, while the whole team sounds patient and unrushed on "Sweet and Lovely" and down home gracious on "The Heather On the Hill." A bluesy waltz take of "Oh Lady Be Good" has Broom's guitar wearing the tune very well. Nice guitar session!
