Jim Ball is the director of communications at the Jewish Arts Collaborative. He grew up in New York and New Jersey (exit 13), majored in music education in college, moved to Boston in 1971, worked odd jobs and did journalism, landed a job at the Harvard News Office, moved into PR work in state government for Boston City Council, did a stint as press secretary for the MBTA and then the dreaded private sector. All along, he kept up his love and involvement with music. He had an idea for a Jewish music festival, met Joey Baron and the rest, as they say….
