James Taylor: How Sweet It Is

Raising Cane’s River Center Arena - Baton Rouge

Bonnie Raitt opened the show at 7:30 and gave a solid performance. She has what I call "swagger" on stage and is a perfect choice to open for someone like James Taylor. She sang all of her favorites including my favorite "Something To Talk About". She also didn't get "political" as was mentioned in some previous reviews. I really enjoyed her one hour set. After a 30 minute intermission and equipment change, James Taylor began his set at 9:00. He performed for two hours and was fantastic. He opened with "Carolina In My Mind" and continued with alot of older songs before playing popular songs like "Mexico", "Fire and Rain", "Your Smiling Face" and "Sweet Baby James" later on. He concluded with "How Sweet It Is" before coming back for an encore of "You've Got A Friend" and two duets with Bonnie Raitt. This was a very satisfying show. I enjoyed every minute of it. These two seem to work very well with each other. Highly recommended.

Fantastic show

Raising Cane’s River Center Arena - Baton Rouge

This was my second time seeing James Taylor and Bonnie rate together in concert. The first time was early last year at the Sanger theater in New Orleans. The concert was phenomenal!! I saw them in Baton Rouge Monday night and the show was just as good if not better. James Taylor is a true entertainer and he enjoys doing what he does so much that she can feel it and see it in him when he’s singing his songs. His songs have meaning that almost everyone can relate to. He truly loves his life and what he’s doing, he loves his fans and he loves his family! Bonnie Raitt is a wonderful performer of her songs and her many different types of music. She’s a bit funky she’s bluesy she rocks she’s jazzy and she can throw in little bit of country and soft sentimental songs too. Bonnie has a sense of humor all her own and she is very enjoyable. She is a very good entertainer! This show is tied with 3 other shows that are on my most favorite shows of all time list! I can’t wait for his next tour!

James Taylor & Bonnie Raitt

Raising Cane’s River Center Arena - Baton Rouge

The venue was clean and prepared. Sound system was excellent. Easy to access and leave. Crowd was well behaved. The most important part of the experience was the performance. My wife and I couldn’t ask for more. 1 hr 15 min. of Bonnie Raitt and 1 hr 50 min. of James Taylor etc. Absolutely fantastic. We thought we got our money’s worth after Bonnie absolutely worth the price. Please, if possible, more!!!!!

Biography

James Taylor in Concert

James Taylor is the archetypal singer/songwriter, who helped create the template for the troubadour style that dominated the 1970s. And when he brings his blend of folk, pop, rock, and soul influences to the stage, it's like a part of history is unfolding before the crowd, with enough tuneful energy to generate some major good-time vibes. The five-time Grammy-winning, multi-platinum songsmith offered up tracks like "Fire and Rain" and "You've Got a Friend" to the collective pop-cultural consciousness in the '70s, and they've stayed there ever since. Of course, he's continued to make compelling music for many decades, and his shows are a grab bag of transfixing new tunes and beloved classics. Taylor's 2018 tour with his All-Star Band (not to be confused with Ringo Starr's similarly named group) also shows how much a crew of world-class players can bring to a classic catalog. Some of the most renowned musicians on the planet lend their talents to the band, including drumming god Steve Gadd, hotshot jazz pianist Kevin Hays, legendary saxman Lou Marini, and more. 

James Taylor Background

James Taylor was born in Boston, but moved to North Carolina a few years later, and the bucolic settings of his childhood eventually informed the pastoral side of his songwriting in a major way. He learned guitar in his adolescence, soaking up folk and blues influences before hitting the coffeehouse circuit in the '60s. Before too long he was in Greenwich Village fronting a band called The Flying Machine, but he soon emerged as a solo singer/songwriter. His 1970 album ‘Sweet Baby James' became a game-changer for the whole '70s music scene. Alongside the likes of Carole King and Joni Mitchell, Taylor epitomized the thoughtful, acoustic-based ballad style that came to dominate the era, and ubiquitous hits like "Fire and Rain" and "Country Road" were central to that style. In later years Taylor showed his versatility by scoring smash singles with covers of R&B tunes like Marvin Gaye's "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)" and Jimmy Jones' '50s hit "Handyman," and Taylor has never stopped finding fresh ways to bring his work to the huge audience that's been addicted to his music for decades.
