A little gift from me to you....

Sweet Baby James

(I hope you're not distracted by the drummer, or the jiggly camera-work.)

I had have a couple other pictures to share from this evening's event: but Blogger photo upload is currently down, so my lil' video above, will have to do.

Andre Agassi & Steffi Graf

JT on JumboTron

J.T. did not disappoint during his performance of mainly oldies, and provided two crowd-pleasing encores. Amazingly, the man sings just as sweetly now as he did 40 years ago (!) when his career first kicked off. My third time seeing him was just as magical as the first.

However, I feel I must blow a big Bronx cheer at the low-class audience members who booed the mayor, at the idiots who filed out early before the two encores, and at the Siegal Center for apparently consulting the Marquis de Sade when they designed the venue's seats -- possibly the most painfully uncomfortable benches on the planet.

Despite those issues, I wouldn't have missed it for the world.

Thanks, James! (But next time, won't you sing Mona?)

how lovely... and I've NEVER understood why people leave before a show is done...

Sounds like lots of fun! I almost got to see JT at my college mumblety-mumble years ago. Let's just say, back when everybody's hair was longer.

Robin said... I'm going to put my CD in since you've teased me!

Thanks for taking me to the concert. It was great and you are right- he sounds the same as years ago.

Robin said...

Man! I wish I had planned to go with you. I don't remember ever hearing Mona. Glad you had a great time!! What a nice day you had - knitting all day and James Taylor all night (well not quite!).

mmmmm.... so nice! I wish I could've gone to see him! I'm so glad you had a good time!

Hi Mary,

Glad you had a great time. I ended up selling a dozen tickets for my boss. I wish I'd saved 1 or 2 for myself as a commission! LOL
