James Taylor

Postby paddyinthepub » Sun Nov 26, 2006 12:44 pm

Sweet Baby James.......'nuff said, really. :wink:

Thought I'd share this with the fans of James Taylor among us.

This from the PBS website/GREAT PERFORMANCES


A TRIBUTE TO JAMES TAYLOR

With his gentle acoustic sound and insightful lyrics, James Taylor remains one of the most influential and beloved singer-songwriters to emerge from the popular music scene of the 1970s. In a career extending over three decades, Taylor's musical craftsmanship has delighted critics and audiences alike. In recognition of his many achievements in music, as well as his philanthropic efforts, Taylor was honored in February 2006 as "Person of the Year" by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences' MusiCares program. The all-star lineup of performers paying tribute to "Sweet Baby James" includes India Arie, Jackson Browne, David Crosby, Dixie Chicks, Sheryl Crow, Jerry Douglas, Dr. John, Carole King, Alison Krauss, Taj Mahal, Bonnie Raitt, Bruce Springsteen, Sting, and Keith Urban.

The program premieres on November 29, 2006 (check local listings); watch for the launch of the Web companion in November 22, 2006.

Paddy:

Thanks for the info.

I am a long time JT fan. I have probably seen him in concert more than any other group or soloist. (I don't have a count).

I have a feeling that EP shows attended will soon outnumber JT's.

I rec'd the JT Christmas CD for my birthday. :)

Just heard this weekend that JT is doing a UK tour in April which is described as 'one man band' and he's on locally - must get tickets to see him.

I'd love to see James Taylor in concert as "one man band." I've seen him LIVE many times....love the full band.....but the highlight of most of his shows was easily the times he opened the concert alone on acoustic guitar.
