BOBBY BROOM – MY SHINING HOUR
I almost panicked when I discovered I didn’t have Bobby Broom’s My Shining Hour on my hard drive. I have gone a few weeks without hearing his elegant and expressive playing. Broom is just an expert at arranging of these classic songs. Combine that with a sublime and instinctive band featuring bassist Dennis Carroll and drummer Makaya McCraven, and My Shining Hour is simply unforgettable. Put on the title track or the brilliantly vibrant Cole Porter classic “Just One Of Those Things,” and you’ll instantly know what I mean. For a man who has consistently made stellar records, this one stands out. Lucky for me, I found my CD.
