James Taylor Pleases All at ACL Taping

DAILY Music  October 2, 2015, by Jim Caligiuri
"...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..."

Music Story  March 17, 2006, by Dan Oko
"...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..."

Film Review  August 17, 2001, by Marc Savlov
"...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..."

Playback: Holy Mountain and Red 7 in Danger of Losing Leases
Could the Red River Cultural District be losing two of its landmark live music venues?
Music Column  May 14, 2015, by Kevin Curtin
"...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."..."

Cars and Speed and Flight
Just prior to his appearance at SXSW Film for a retrospective of his work, Monte Hellman talks about a career in film.
Screens Story  March 10, 2000, by Marc Savlov
"...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..."

Music Story  December 13, 1996
"...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..."

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."

Southside With You

Film Review  August 26, 2016, by Steve Davis
"...Meanwhile, an attractive young African-American woman (Sumpter, who also co-produced the film) on the Southside intently readies herself, fielding questions from her parents about the Harvard summer intern at her law firm who’s picking her up in his beat-up Datsun for an outing she emphatically denies is a date. Not much happens during these first few minutes of Southside With You, the semi-fictionalized version of what, in fact, turns out to be the first date between future White House residents Barack Obama and Michelle Robinson, but the setup is so enticing (the jazzy chords of Stephen James Taylor’s score subtly suggest romance) that you’re instantly on the hook, eager to see how this day will go even though you already know how it will end...."

Sometimes the Music's in the Scratches
In defense of the bootleg
Screens Story  February 15, 2008, by Spencer Parsons
"...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)...."

(Now the question is how many people will buy an album that features the Butts alongside James Taylor and Jimmy Buffett.)
