James Taylor is a man from another era. Together with JoniMitchell, Jackson Browne, Carole King, Cat Stevens and others, heused to impress with craftily written songs at the beginning of the70s. But Taylor was something else; his voice truly grabbed you.That inviting, somewhat drawling, sonorous voice touched many atender spot. Today, Taylor is still the same intelligent, cautiousand warm man. Exactly like in his pictures and performances. In the70s, he experienced some difficult times but he never belied hisdistinct style. The man from North Carolina has been veryproductive these last years and his latest outburst is his albumCovers from 2008, which is filled with his favorite songs. Tayloris a superstar, but it isn't something he enjoys. 'I have a lot ofgood friends, such as Neil Young and Bob Dylan. They all say theydislike the fuss, but I know better than that. They thrive in thelimelight; I only thrive with my guitar in my hands.' This time hebrings along a line-up of pure top-of-the-bill artists, truly aBand of Legends. He is accompanied by the legendary drummer SteveGadd, bassist Jimmy Johnson, keyboardist Larry Goldings andguitarist Michael Landau.
