THE MUSIC OF JAMES TAYLOR

Honestly, no one on the planet plays guitar or sings exactly like James Taylor. Imitating Taylor is impossible. Thus, Jim's re-imagined renditions are aimed at capturing the essence of JT's music - timeless songs that evoke great memories and emotions. 

 

Jim's unique multi-finger picking style dovetailed nicely into James Taylor's work.  "It was a ton of work and loads of fun nailing down over 20 of Taylor's songs in preparing to showcase this project", Jim says.

 

As a duo, Jim is accompanied by a real pro on the keyboards.  A real treat is having Jim's two vocally talented daughters in the show which gives the entire performance a whole new wonderful dimension.
