Live From Traverse City, It's Bob James

Live From Traverse City, It's Bob James

By Kristi Kates

"It was a surprise – almost a shock," Traverse City's Bob James laughs, recalling how he felt after discovering his May 2014 Traverse City concert had been recorded -- without his knowledge.

It was the quick thinking of the Dennos Museum's Gene Jenneman to save the Grammy Award-winning jazz performer's concert for posterity, a fact he only admitted to James after the show concluded. The multitrack recording by Milliken Tech Director Jack Connors was such high quality, even James admitted it had to become something more. That "something" is the new album Bob James Live at the Milliken.

"It was a very celebratory evening," James tells The Ticker, "and I had secretly been hoping it had been recorded somehow. So when Gene shyly said that they had done just that, I was happy to hear it. It was recorded beautifully, and I was thrilled. And it may have been good I didn't know ahead of time, as that makes performers nervous!" more
