Born in Harlem and raised on the Upper West Side of NYC, Bobby Broom took up guitar at 12 and five years later, in 1977, made his first appearance with Sonny Rollins at Carnegie Hall.
He went on to tour and record with Rollins in 1981- 86 (and again, from 2005 – 2010). During his early years, Bobby also performed with trumpeters: Tom Browne and Hugh Masakela, pianists: Weldon Irvine and Dave Grusin and Charlie Parker pianists: Al Haig and Walter Bishop, Jr.
By 1981, Broom had recorded his debut as a leader, Clean Sweep for GRP Records. He relocated to Chicago later in that decade, while continuing to work with Kenny Burrell, Stanley Turrentine, Charles Earland, Miles Davis, Kenny Garrett and Dr. John, among others over the next 20 years.
Heralded as “one of the most musical guitarists of our times,” Bobby has spent the new millennium focusing on his musical output as a leader, recording with both his Bobby Broom Trio and the disbanded, Deep Blue Organ Trio for the Origin label. He was recognized as one of the top guitarists in Down Beat magazine’s annual Critics Poll for 3 years, from 2012–2014.
Broom’s latest recording, Soul Fingers, debuts his new organ group, the Bobby Broom Organi-Sation, which was the opening act for Steely Dan’s fifty city, North American tour of 2014.
