Bobby Broom, a jazz guitarist who has played with the likes of Sonny Rollins, has released a single from his forthcoming covers album, Soul Fingers. It’s a familiar one to most of us: The Beatles’ “Come Together.”
Broom, joined by his band The Organi-Sation, puts a soulful spin on the Fab Four’s classic tune. Far from a straight cover, this arrangement is subtle, restrained and understated—with plenty of tasteful jazz noodling and Hammond organs.
“Come Together” is one of ten covers that are set to appear on Soul Fingers, which arrives on October 12. All the covers are of pop and rock hits from the ’60s and ’70s: They include Procul Harum’s “A Whiter Shade of Pale,” Steely Dan’s “Do it Again,” and, perhaps obligatorily, Bread’s “The Guitar Man.”
