O’s Notes: Guitarist Bobby Broom leads a trio with Dennis Carroll (b) and Kobie Watkins (d) for this live session at Pete Miller’s Steakhouse in Chicago. They are playing bebop – eight covers of classic tunes. Bobby takes the bull by the horns on Parker’s “Donna Lee” and Rollins’ “Unit 7” with great fills from Watkins. Performing in a restaurant is always challenge but at least a few of the patrons were captured by Broom’s work and there was lots of applause! They slowed things down on “Body and Soul” then wrapped the set with a lengthy rich arrangement of “Inception”.
