JAMES TAY­LOR

Where Ottawa - - Here & Now -

MAY 6

James Tay­lor’s lat­est work, Be­fore is World, is a nos­tal­gic, heart­felt rec­ol­lec­tion of the folk-rock trou­ba­dour’s life — a life that, though marked at times by de­pres­sion and ad­dic­tion, was tem­pered by highs of un­ex­pected pro­fes­sional suc­cess. His golden voice and wry, thought­ful lyrics guide the lis­tener through the moun­tains and val­leys of Mon­tana and to far away, war-torn Afghanistan. e song “An­gels of Fen­way” re­flects on the ups and downs of be­ing a life­long Bos­ton Red Sox fan, while at the same time serv­ing as a touch­ing tribute to a beloved grand­mother. He per­forms th­ese mov­ing songs live at Cana­dian Tire Cen­tre as part of his North Amer­i­can tour. (p. 37)
