Born in Harlem and raised on the Upper West Side of NYC, Bobby Broom took up guitar at 12 and five years later, in 1977, made his first appearance with Sonny Rollins at Carnegie Hall. Nearly 50 years later, Bobby has amassed a formidable jazz pedigree, working closely with historic figures such as Rollins, Miles Davis, Art Blakey, Stanley Turrentine and Kenny Burrell, as well as many of his contemporaries. To date, he has made 15 leader recordings and has toured as an accompanying musician, and with his own ensembles, in countries on five continents.
Broom is a tenured Associate Professor at Northern Illinois University and has devoted much of his career to jazz education. He began teaching under the direction of NEA Jazz Fellow and saxophone great, Jackie McLean, at University of Hartford. Bobby also works with high school students through the Herbie Hancock (formerly Thelonious Monk) Institute and with the Ravinia Jazz Mentor Program.
