Bobby Broom | The JAZZIZ Podcast #17

Welcome to the JAZZIZ Podcast. This is our new series of podcast conversations, hosted by JAZZIZ Online Editor Matt Micucci and featuring some of the best artists of today’s jazz and creative music scene. Many of these artists are part of JAZZIZ Vinyl Club, our series of limited-edition color vinyl albums curated by the JAZZIZ Editors, featuring some of the most exciting jazz artists from yesterday and today that we cover in the print version of JAZZIZ, our website and these podcasts.

Our latest episode of the JAZZIZ Podcast features a conversation with Bobby Broom, a guitar legend who has performed with some of the all-time greats and who has established his reputation as one of the most skilled and versatile six-strings interpreters of his generation. His latest album, Keyed Up, is a tribute to the great pianists and documents a collaboration with rising star musician Justin Dillard, sitting in the piano chair. Broom talks about this latest project and more, including his beginnings and thoughts on the jazz art form, as well as his idea that playing music “comes down to being sensitive enough to know how to not clutter up the space based on the sonic environment.”
