Bobby Broom's My Shining Hour #5 on JazzWeek for the Second Week

Bobby Broom's new album, "My Shining Hour" was recorded on old school analog 8 track tape, with one central microphone and a pick-up for each instrument in The Bobby Broom Trio.  

It's an album of Jazz standards, but, before you roll your eyes and move on from tunes like "Sweet and Lovely" and "Sweet Georgia Brown," Broom and his band mates of many years, Dennis Carroll on bass and Makaya McCraven on drums, have reinvigorated and reinvented the tunes in a style that has the elements of bop but swings almost more like the caviar of smooth jazz...

The tempos are chill, and the ideas behind every note sing out almost as clearly as Bobby Broom's wonderful guitar.  He's the most under-appreciated of guitarists, with three DownBeat Critics Poll nods in a row under his belt.  He's the heir to the Wes Montgomery/George Benson school of jazz guitar.  

My Shining Hour debuted at #41 in mid-August, climbed to #22 the next week, sold out of its first run of CDs, and has spent the last two weeks at #5.  

It's a big RECOMMEND.
