When: Sat., July 31 2021
James Taylor and Jackson Browne, two iconic '70s singer-songwriters, were supposed to hit the road together last summer. COVID derailed those plans, but the two rescheduled their trek and will perform tonight at 7:30 at Blossom, marking the start of Blossom's rock/pop season. The dates support both Taylor’s new album, American Standard, and Jackson's forthcoming LP. American Standard is Taylor's 19th studio album and his first release since 2015's Before This World. The album features covers of 20th century classics, songs that he says were part of his family's record collection. Expect to hear plenty of covers tonight from Taylor, who admits to knowing most of these songs from the original cast recordings of the famous Rodgers and Hammerstein musicals, including My Fair Lady, Oklahoma, Carousel, Showboat and others. Browne's new album will include the single "My Cleveland Heart." Expect it to receive a warm response if Browne plays it tonight (and you'd think he has to, right?).
