During his Cranford, New Jersey high school days, Bob Finney was the tenor saxophonist in a Dixieland jazz group. The group played locally at high school events and variety shows around town. But he wanted more. While still a teenager, he heard that every Tuesday night at Eddie Condon's club in Greenwich Village there were open jam sessions and if you were lucky enough to get in you might play with some big name talent. So, without his parents' permission, he hustled off to New York as many Tuesdays as he could manage. Finally, he got his chance to pay with trombonists Jack Teagarten and Miff Mole, trumpeter Red Allen, and drummer Cozy Cole. Once, clarinetist Peanuts Huckow leaned over to Bob and said, "Hey kid. Try this lick." Coupled with his formal lessons, these treks to Eddie Condon's helped to make Bob's improvisations that much sweeter.

Later in college, Bob worked as a sideman for touring big bands such as Ray Anthony, Ray McKinley, Ralph Marterie, and Woody Herman's "3rd Herd." All of these opportunities helped to hone his skills and finance his education. Bob laid his tenor saxophone down for thirty-five years serving in the United States Navy, pursuing an academic career, and raising six children with his first wife. With his second wife, Scarlett, they began their musical journey together when he purchased a new sax and had his old "licorice stick" refurbished. He believes his past experiences gave him a solid underpinning so that picking up the ax after such a long time was like riding a bike--you just never forget. One of his college students asked him recently what was different about playing now as opposed to "the old days," and Dr. Bob responded, "It takes a little longer for the ideas to transfer from the brain to the fingers, but having lived so long, I now have better ideas!"
