James Taylor is one of the more gentle souls of rock and roll, a man who started his career in the mid 60's, but came to fame with the explosion of singer-songwriters in the early 70's
(ie: Joni Mitchell, Tom Rush, Cat Stevens, Carole King, John Denver, Jim Croce, Don McLean, Gordon Lightfoot, Jackson Browne, Carly Simon)
He has continued to make albums since that time and his next one promises to be very interesting.
In January 2008 he recorded approximately 20 songs, all soul music covers with an excellent band including Luis Conte, Michael Landau and Lou Marini.
This album, named "Covers" is due to be released the 30 September 2008
