The North Door
"...Thursday night’s Austin City Limits taping with James Taylor was as surprise-filled as any I’ve ever witnessed. He concentrated on tunes from his first collection of new material in 13 years, Before This World, but those songs fit snugly next to his better-known hits..."
"...If James Taylor and Carly Simon thought they could pull a Don Corleone by sending their son Ben off to school, they were wrong. As with Pacino's character in the Godfather, Ben born 1977, the same year his dad released JT, featuring the hit "Handy Man" has found it impossible to resist the pull of the family business..."

"...John Smithee, and Rep. Larry Taylor...."
"...He can’t quite hit those pie-in-the-sky highs anymore, the 63-year-old American folk hero singing in a lower register while his count-‘em four back-up singers collectively pulled some ozone notes, but really, there wasn’t anything the least bit wrong with James Taylor’s voice Saturday night at a bustling Bass Concert Hall...."
"...Starring: Adam Sandler, Seth Rogen, Leslie Mann, Eric Bana, Jonah Hill, Jason Schwartzman, Aubrey Plaza, Maude Apatow, Iris Apatow, RZA and Aziz Ansari. “Do you ever get tired of playing the same songs over and over again?” a young comic named Ira (Rogen) asks the singer-songwriter James Taylor, who has just watched Ira’s set..."

"...Instead of true grit and gutshot black-hatters, director Les Mayfield has crafted what may well be the world's first Tommy Hilfiger Western, chock-a-block with fresh-faced up-and-comers sporting pearly whites so dazzling the reflected glare could bring down the entire Texas Air National Guard. The real source of American Outlaws' unceasing barrage of numbing mediocrity isn't the cast, though (Aussie lead Farrell as young Jesse James is riveting when he's actually given something interesting to do that doesn't involve shooting a hole in someone, which isn't often enough), it's writer Roderick Taylor's awful script, which takes the general lore of the James-Younger Gang and slickens it up with contemporary pop culture twang..."

"...Night Shyamalan. Starring: James McAvoy, Anya Taylor-Joy, Betty Buckley, Jessica Sula, Haley Lu Richardson, Izzie Coffey, Brad William Henke and Sebastian Arcelus...."
"...Holy Mountain partner James Taylor characterized the increase as "completely unsustainable." Holy Mountain/Red 7 partner Jared Cannon simply says "impossible." Upon viewing the price-per-square-foot rates of the listings, one real estate executive with experience in Downtown retail leases confirmed, "That price is definitely on the high end. What we're seeing happening is someone from out of town will come in and pay an extraordinary rate for a property in a certain neighborhood, then it sets a high benchmark."..."
"...Casualties of the pricing boom, owners were confronted with a 45% rent increase, putting their monthly bill at $8,000 plus "triple net" fees – taxes, insurance, and maintenance – totaling in the thousands. It's an unmanageable figure for the club to sustain, confirms co-owner James Taylor...."
"...I was 15 when I met James Taylor at Clementine Coffee, now Thunderbird Manor. Our friendship began over a discussion of pomegranate Italian sodas..."
"...When Chip Taylor wrote "Storybook Children" in the mid-Sixties, there was no way of knowing it would become a catalyst for his career resurgence in the next millennium. The song, co-authored and sung by Billy Vera with Judy Clay, charted high, and the pair became the first interracial couple to do so..."
"...Directed by: Masayuki Ochiai. Starring: Joshua Jackson, Rachael Taylor, Megumi Okina, David Denman, John Hensley, James Kyson Lee and Maya Hazen..."
"...Indeed, both Malick and Hellman work the same existential angst into their films, mixing the mundane (cars, cowboys, killers) with a not-so-nouvelle vague mindset that plays off the American id like so much buckshot off bone. Two-Lane Blacktop, starring a young James Taylor, Beach Boy drummer Dennis Wilson, and Hellman regular Warren Oates, is about cars and speed, but Hellman being the auteur that he is, it's also about a lot more than that..."
"...To truly understand the success a single song can achieve, look up songwriter Chip Taylor at AllMusic.com. There, under his name and the tab marked "Songs," click through to "Songs Composed By," and peruse a few titles: "Country Girl, City Man" by Ike & Tina Turner..."

"...Directed by: Sam Taylor-Wood. Starring: Aaron Johnson, Anne-Marie Duff, Kristin Scott Thomas, David Threlfall, Josh Bolt, James Johnson and Thomas Sangster..."
"...Jazz the World Forgot catches the music just as it was emerging, the unlikely marriage of string band blues with military marching band brass and ragtime syncopation, spitting forth raw hedonism. And best of all, this collection seems to capture everything; sure, it's not too hard to find cuts by legends like King Oliver, Jelly Roll Morton, or the golden-voiced Mamie Smith, but how many CDs contain regional obscurities like the Ross De Luxe Syncopaters or Taylor's Dixie Serenaders? If historical importance enhances your enjoyment of music, you'll be beside yourself with the discoveries here. 5.0 stars -- Lee Nichols..."
"...The club scene is also captured through the movie's ever-present music track which was supervised by Texas rocker Johnny Reno. Reno also performs in the film with his band in addition to appearances by Steve James, Anson Funderbergh and the Rockets and Cafe Noir as well as soundtrack contributions from Fever in the Funkhouse, Big Boss Groove and Cricket Taylor..."
"...• James Taylor's solo shivers through Joni Mitchell's "Woodstock" and Stephen Stills' Fender catching fire on Crosby, Stills & Nash's "Wooden Ships." Michael Stipe puts them all to shame delivering "Man on the Moon" out front of R.E.M. with Eddie Vedder...."
"...Everyone from Lance Bass and Richard Chamberlain to Dave Matthews wanted a piece of this mess. The strange cherry on top is that the screenplay was co-written by Academy Award-winning writer/director Alexander Payne (Sideways, About Schmidt) and his writing partner, Jim Taylor..."
"...Directed by: Sean Baker. Starring: Kitana Kiki Rodriguez, Mya Taylor, Karren Karagulian, Mickey O’Hagan, James Ransone, Alla Tumanian, Luiza Nersisyan, Arsen Grigoryan and Clu Gulager...."
"...For better or worse, there are few -- if any -- instances in which comparisons to James Taylor are good. Thus, when Bruce Robison's light tenor smoothes itself over a gentle acoustic guitar and dreamy steel in decidedly Sweet Baby Jamesian fashion mere seconds into this Austin singer-songwriter's second release for Nashville-based Sony imprint Lucky Dog, you're already making polite excuses like "nice" and "pleasant." Even the album's press release cites Taylor..."
"...15, 18th Floor at Hilton Garden Inn, 8pm One of the more intriguing local entries this SXSW and fast-tracked for breakout folk success, the young singer-songwriter from Utah caught the attention of Austin City Limits majordomo Terry Lickona. His single "Make America Kind Again" filters the political through a James Taylor/Slowdive strainer. – Kahron Spearman Kay Odyssey..."
"...James Taylor, Holy Mountain’s general manager, told the Chronicle Wednesday that most venues around town will be donating variations of proceeds – cover charges, percentages of bar sales, etc. – from one or two nights out of the nine, with his club hosting Possessed by Paul James, the Lonesome Heroes, Mother Mary & the Black Dirt, and Harrison Anderson on April 18..."

"...Last Wednesday, a group representing the Red River Cultural District, including Mohawk owner James Moody, Holy Mountain partner James Taylor, and Austin Music People (AMP) Executive Director Jennifer Houlihan, met with the developers to welcome them to the neighborhood and open a dialogue about the hotel's impact on the area's live music ecosystem...."
"...A box-office dud more or less suppressed by an embarrassed Universal until 1999, this was a film prized among cinephiles like samizdat, arriving in my hands on one of those tapes as precious for the entertainingly libelous yarn about its provenance as for its actual contents. Not to say that the contents weren't considerable, but if context isn't all, it can mean a hell of a lot, especially when you're dealing with the kind of angular, allegorical minimalism that favors landscapes over the speed of the cars traveling through them and traffics in character names like the Driver (James Taylor), the Girl (Laurie Bird), the Mechanic (Dennis Wilson), and GTO (Warren Oates)...."
"...Art Garfunkel's comb-over resembled a bird's nest, and Paul Simon's apparently given up his decades-old quest to disguise his baldness, which is as it should be. Between them and James Taylor, who also performed, they could make some franchise of the Hair Club for Men very happy..."
"...Also, I hear that ABC has already used the Butthole Surfers' version of the Lovin' Spoonful's "Summer in the City," off the new MOM 3: Music for Our Mother Ocean save-the-sharks benefit album, as an accompaniment to the day's sports scores on one of their news programs. (Now the question is how many people will buy an album that features the Butts alongside James Taylor and Jimmy Buffett.) Plus, take note that during his appearance in Robert Earl Keen's Texas Uprising gig this Saturday at the Backyard, Charlie Robison will be shooting footage for a video of his next single, "Hometown," due for release to country radio on October 11..."
"...Directed by: George Stevens. Starring: Rock Hudson, Elizabeth Taylor, James Dean, Mercedes McCambridge, Jane Withers, Dennis Hopper and Sal Mineo..."
"...All my partners out there during those days are all gone. Johnny Watson, Johnny Taylor, all of them...."
"..."I think we had the perfect-sized room to help nurture bands," appraises Holy Mountain owner James Taylor. "There were bands that three years ago could barely bring 20 people out on a Wednesday night who can now draw a crowd..."
"...For Holy Mountain partner James Taylor that's not soon enough. Paired with the arrival of boutique, entertainment-conscious hotels like Hotel Indigo, a chic subsidiary of Inter-Continental Hotels opening at Wickham's aforementioned parking garage next March (check "Playback," April 4), Taylor foresees a new era for Red River, one in which the sidewalks get cleaned up and the music continues nightly – bars opening earlier to meet demand and rising rent...."
"...Pity Ryan Taylor. He grew up in Dennison loving the Texas Longhorns and will enter DKR-Memorial Stadium this Saturday fulfilling a dream..."
