The Bobby Broom Trio was among the featured acts at the East Coast Jazz Festival, President's Weekend in Rockville MD. Broom, with his trio of Dennis Carroll bass and Kobie Watkins on drums. Watkins was with Broom in Sonny Rollins Band which Bobby had been in the past few years. At his performance at the Festival, Broom featured selections from his recent Origin Arts CD "Plays For Monk" along with other selections. This trio has been working together for some time and it was especially interesting to watch the animated playing of Watkins on drums.
