Friday Musical Interlude – James Taylor

Posted: Category: Friday Musical Interlude 1 Comment

5 decades..  The singer-songwriter with one of the most beautiful voices to take the stage.  James Taylor.

After kicking a massive heroin addiction in the late 60’s, JT really stepped into the light with the release of Sweet Baby James and Gorilla as well as a stinit with Art Garfunkel in 78.  in 1988 James release the album that really got me hooked on him, “Never Die Young” and later a live version is a must have.the 90’s and on have been a mix of producing, voice overs for shows like the Simpsons and the movie Cars, many collaborations with other artists and charitable work.

Let me tell you… it is VERY hard for me to only pick a few selections to put up here but here goes.

How Sweet it Is, duet with Oscar the Grouch.

Fire and Rain

Something in the Way She Moves

Never Die Young

And this last one is a little special. I chose this song to dance with my mother at my wedding.

Sweet Baby James

Happy Friday, hope you enjoy them!

  • Did you happen to catch Bettye LaVette at the Kennedy Center Honors, singing “Love Reign O’er Me”? That lady has some pipes.
