Product Description

Guitarist Bobby Broom has been playing professionally for more than 20 years. He's worked with Sonny Rollins, Miles Davis, Art Blakey, Kenny Burrell, Charles Earland & Dr. John. This album recalls the urgent, smoking energy of George Benson circa 1966's 'The Cookbook'. Indeed, fire-breathing baritone sax ace Ronnie Cuber & Hammond B-3 marvel Dr. Lonnie Smith - key elements of that ferocious mid-'60s Benson quartet - are both aboard. Drummer Idris Muhammad brings along his own conversational, New Orleans flavored swing to elevate the proceedings.

Review

Broom should be a household name...smoky, deep-purple tone, a hot bed of smoldering organ, burly sax and swampy swing. --JazzTimes

Cool session! There's been some comparisons to
George Benson's onetime lineup with Cuber and Dr. smith
on a few cds. But the comparison ends there. This is
one 'Hot' cd, in the cool sense. Bobby Broom has style
and chops all his own. This is one serious guitarist
who can rank and outrank most when it comes to true jazz
guitar. He swings, improvises, and flat out smokes with
ease and sophistication. His supporting cast is equally
impressive. Cuber's sound is classic. Idris is tight
and free on the drums, and Dr. Smith as always is one
killer organists. Younger organists take heed and learn.
A very good work of modern jazz.

It took a few days listening to understand how good this album really is. At first I was a little bit disappointed.. I would have expect Broom to play with a somewhat more aggressive tone...with a little more "bite" like Benson in the sixties.. But it is pretty obvious that Broom is quite a sophisticated player who have quite some "melancholy" in his way of playing.
I can only agree with George Benson."Bobby Broom is a bad dude"
I never been a great fan of baritone sax as an instrument but they way Ronni Cuber handles it... wow.... it becomes something else..he sounds is not so far from the tenor sax..he is also a bad dude...Dr Lonnie Smith s playing is beyond words he is the real cooker here and he is a "very very bad dude"....his sound is more mellow nowadays then 20-30 years ago.. but he is very groovy here... check out his solo on Stevie Wonders song "Superstition" which is by the way taken in a uptempo...The legendary "groovemaster" Idris Muhammad is as always the perfect drummer for this kind of music.
This music is slightly more sophisticated than one would expect from a soul jazz quartet like this.... but the guys might show us another direction for a hammond quartet than the normal "blues route". You should also check out guitarist Ed Cherry s last album "Spirits Speak" if you like this.... as well as any album by the young hammond b3 master Sam Yahel.
