about

On Soul Fingers, guitarist Bobby Broom embraces the rhythm & blues core of jazz with his new group, the Organi–Sation, featuring organist Ben Paterson and drummer Kobie Watkins, playing interpretations of pop melodies from the Beatles to Motown. Produced by legendary drummer/producer, Steve Jordan. Combining his love of jazz, pop melodies he grew up with in the 1960s and 1970s and the funky, urban soul of his youth, for his 12th album as a leader "Broom passionately extends the tradition of great jazz guitarists from Kenny Burrell and Wes Montgomery to Grant Green, George Benson and Pat Martino."
