Sweet Baby James and his All Star Band
It was another "bucket list" check off, James Taylor in concert. We moved here a little over 4 years ago, and at that time J.T. was touring with Carole King. We decided to buy tickets to see them in Cleveland, and we bought pretty good tickets too. Then, all of a sudden, we moved to Nashville and couldn't go. I sold the tickets and that was that.
This past weekend we were booked to go to Gatlinburg, where we spent our honeymoon 37 years ago. Marlene ended up with a nasty sinus infection and we had to cancel. Now we had a rare weekend off, in fact 4 days in a row, and we wanted to do something. She remembered that this concert was happening, found out tickets were available and I'm so glad she did!
There is a reason the concert is billed as his "all star band" it's because they are all stars! Steve Gadd is a legend in recorded drumming! I made a comment to Marlene that the percussionist was incredible, and it turns out he was Luis Conte, another legend! If you love music, check out the links to read about who these players are. And if you get a chance to see this show, do it! You won't be disappointed, in fact you will be very entertained!
