James Taylor got a wonderful tribute on Great Performances
7 August 2007 | by See all my reviews

This was an all-star musical tribute to MusiCares 2006 Person of the Year: James Taylor. The Dixie Chicks started the evening with their rendition of "Shower the People". From there came Bonnie Raitt, Jimmy Buffett on tape amusingly comparing himself and Taylor over the years, Sting, Sheryl Crow with David Crosby and Jackson Browne, Allison Krause, Cheech Marin introducing Dr. John and Taj Mahal, India Arie, a surprise appearance by Bruce Springsteen, and Carole King singing "You've Got a Friend" which she wrote and sang on her best-selling "Tapestry" album and then Taylor made a No. 1 hit, all during 1971. He joins Carole here to delightful effect. Then after accepting his award, James sang a song that saluted Martin Luther King, "How Sweet It Is" with his family on stage and then ended the show with "Fire and Rain". All in all, a glorious treat to such a glorious person.
