Bobby Broom
Guitarist Bobby Broom and the Deep Blue Organ trio are coming to St. Louis to perform at 8:30 p.m. next Thursday, September 13 at Robbie's House of Jazz.

Broom (pictured), a New York native who now lives in Chicago, may be best known to jazz fans as a member of saxophonist Sonny Rollins' band from 1982 to 1987 and again from 2005 to 2010. His performing and recording credits also include work with Art Blakey, Max Roach, Stanley Turrentine, Kenny Garrett, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Charles Earland, Dr. John, Kenny Burrell, Eric Alexander, Ron Carter, Ramsey Lewis, and more.

The Deep Blue Organ Trio, which began in 1999, also includes organist Chris Foreman, who plays frequently at Chicago's Green Mill, and drummer Greg Rockingham. Their most recent album Wonderful, released in 2011, features songs made famous by Stevie Wonder. In July of this year, the group did a two-week residency at the famed Umbria Jazz Festival in Perugia, Italy.

No word yet on the ticket price, but if previous shows by touring performers at Robbie's are any indication, it likely will be in the range of $10 to $20. We'll update this post if/when more information becomes available.
