It’s been a summer of stars for music fans in Western New York, with everyone from mega-stars Justin Timberlake and Lady Gaga to such classics as Aretha Franklin and Hall and Oates appearing here.
Add James Taylor to the list today.
The original JT – Sorry, Mr. Timberlake – will appear tonight at First Niagara Center. If recent reviews are any indication, fans should get what they came for.
The Newark (N.J.) Star-Ledger said “He remains one of the most reliable entertainers in American popular music — a storyteller and sit-down strummer with a voice rich as Carolina soil.”
The headline in the Toronto Sun called his show “pure perfection.”
And the Columbus Dispatch review – headlined “Old favorites still warm and fuzzy” – said “Taylor’s ability to make a soul song his own was as strong as ever.”
