JT and music I like


“The secret of life is enjoying the passage of time.”~ James Taylor

James Taylor was born in Boston Massachusetts on March 12, 1948. He is an American singer-songwriter and guitarist. He began his career in the mid-1960’s, but he found his audience in the early 1970’s. He sings sensitive and gentle acoustic songs. He was part of a wave of soft singer songwriters of the time that also included Joni Mitchell, John Denver, Jackson Browne and Carly Simon. He later married Carly Simon.

He is one of my favorite musicians . His Greatest Hits album from 1976 went diamond and sold more than 11 million copies.

I have many videos on my computer that I am not able to upload to my blog. I did find them elsewhere on the web. People have been uploading video to a site that I found. If your computer is slow or you have a slow connection just push the pause button on the player until the light grey line moves from the left to the right and almost to the end. Then click play and you can watch and listen without interuption.

This is wonderful. This is James Taylor singing You’ve Got A Friend in 1971.
Awsome video! Click on the link below to watch and listen.

This video is not very clear. It is evident how much fun James and Carly are having singing this song together. She is barefoot and bopping around the stage and James makes some faces and dances too. Carly Simon and James Taylor perform “Mockingbird”.

I also have an unreleased holiday song that is not on his latest CD. The song is called River and was written by Joni Mitchell. This clip is audio only.
