Podcast #68: Michael Jackson Tribute - Kansas City, MO - 4/15/11 The Live Music Podcast

    • Music

Welcome back, don’t call it a comeback, to the live music podcast episode 68.  It has been quite some time since the last show and without going into too many details it was a break that was needed but it is good to be back.  After such a long time is was going to take a very special concert to get me going again and I think that is what I have in store for you on this show.

The music I will be featuring is the first tribute concert to be featured on the livemusicpodcast and it will be a tough one to follow up on for any others.  I heard about a Michael Jackson tribute concert in April from a friend of mine and without knowing any of the bands involved thought it was a safe enough bet for a good time.  I didn’t have a lot to be worried about since there was plenty of buzz going around about the potential that this show would have given the collection of talented Kansas City musicians involved.  The main group organizing it was the experimental world-jazz band Diverse but rotating in throughout the night was an eclectic group of musicians from various backgrounds.  Its hard to truly appreciate the difficulty of pulling off a great MJ tribute show without descending into bad karaoke.  You really get the sense of the singing talent that MJ possessed when you see how many different singers it really takes to match his vocal range and also the number of instruments on stage to create the full sound that a lot of his songs require.  Seeing it firsthand these musicians from Kansas City were able to pull it off that night and I’m guessing MJ would have been very pleased.  The release of this episode marks the 2 year anniversary of his passing so hopefully he would be pleased by my humble tribute to the king of pop as well.  Please enjoy.
