Bobby Broom: Soul Fingers

Read "Soul Fingers" reviewed by Jim Trageser

A thematic sequel to his 2007 release, Song and Dance, Bobby Broom's Soul Fingers is a deep-pile take on late 1960s--early 1970s pop, with Broom in his best Wes Montgomery vein, giving new soul-jazz life to one-time chart hits.
