"One Man Band" by James Taylor
James Taylor's "One Man Band", a soon to be released CD/DVD set, is more than just the live version of the some of the most treasured recordings in the history of American music. Its a marked return to an earlier, simpler style of performance for the quintessential singer-songwriter. The DVD, produced and directed by Don Mischer (“Kennedy Center Honors,” and “Super Bowl XLI Halftime Show with Prince”) and executive produced by Sydney Pollack (“Out of Africa,” “Sketches of Frank Gehry”), helps tell the stories behind some of Taylor’s most beloved hits through exclusive interviews, rare multi-media footage, home movies and photographs from Taylor’s personal archives. The result is an extraordinary, one-of-a-kind portrait of an iconic American artist, his renowned repertoire and the personal stories behind the songs.
“Performing these songs in their original, stripped-down form in small halls is like going to the well for water,” says Taylor. “It reconnects me to the music and puts me back in touch with the audience.”
James Taylor’s "One Man Band" will be available on Tuesday, November 13th, 2007 in the USA and November 23rd, 2007 globally.
