Bob Brough

Bob Brough was hot, hot, hot back in 1982, with the trio Timewarp, on the CD Time Warp when it was given a Juno nomination.

And Bob was hot, hot, hot back in 2003 with Richard Underhill's Quintet on the CD Tales from the Blue Lounge, when Richard’s CD won a Juno-award.

Now, in 2008 Bob is hot, hot, hot following a 3-year-long adventure with the most recent version of The Bob Brough Quartet which has culminated in the release of a new CD, Time Away, celebrated officially at the Rex Jazz and Blues Bar on November 7, 2008.

At the CD-release engagement, Bob Brough on tenor saxophone, Adrean Farrugia on piano, Artie Roth on bass, and Terry Clarke on drums, played two rousing sets comprised of jazz standards and original compositions by Bob or Adrean. Impeccable cohesiveness was the order of the evening as the 4 dynamic musicians moved as one through incredibly speedy and difficult improvised passages. The Quartet ended the evening with an audience calling for more and none the least unaware of the unstoppable nature of the energy in this fiery ensemble; nor of the up-beat determination of Bob Brough.

”Brough’s sax kicks in and the bass/drum rhythm section catches on fire culminating in Terry Clarke’s kick-ass drum solo ...to enjoy some jazz, you can’t go wrong with The Bob Brough Quartet’s CD, Time Away.” Jim Dupuis earshot Oct 21'08

“Like A Spring Day offers the opportunity to showcase the talents of singer Carol McCartney. Bob Brough impressed us last year on his debut CD and, likewise, as an accompanist he proves equally adept. We get to hear him solo on every track and also provide gorgeous obbligatos behind McCartney in a manner that you'd associate with Stan Getz or Scott Hamilton.” --Michael P
