James Taylor’s “One Man Band” Garners Critical Acclaim And Impressive Sales

CD/DVD Set Debuts on Billboard's Pop Chart at #17 with More Than 63,000 Sales

LOS ANGELES, NOVEMBER 20, 2007 - Fresh off the heels of appearances on "The Today Show," "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and "Tavis Smiley," James Taylor's new album "One Man Band" debuted at #17 on Billboard's Top 200 with first week sales hitting more than 63,000. The set also debuted at #2 on Billboard's DVD chart.

"One Man Band," a new CD/DVD set, marks a return to an earlier, simpler style of performance for the quintessential singer-songwriter. The DVD, produced and directed by Don Mischer ("Kennedy Center Honors," and "Super Bowl XLI Halftime Show with Prince") and executive produced by Sydney Pollack ("Out of Africa," "Sketches of Frank Gehry"), helps tell the stories behind some of Taylor's most beloved hits through exclusive interviews, rare multi-media footage, home movies and photographs from Taylor's personal archives. The result is an extraordinary, one-of-a-kind portrait of an iconic American artist, his renowned repertoire and the personal stories behind the songs.

James Taylor also recently announced his upcoming performances with Carole King at The Troubadour in Los Angeles to honor the famed venue's 50th anniversary with a return three-night engagement, November 28, 29 and 30. The special performances will feature songs from their 1969 debut Troubadour shows that helped propel them both to the world stage. King and Taylor will reunite with guitarist Danny "Kootch" Kortchmar, drummer Russ Kunkel and bassist Lee Sklar, famous in their own right as The Section. There will be two performances each night with ticket proceeds benefiting charities including Natural Resources Defense Council, MusiCares, Alliance for the Wild Rockies and the Los Angeles Regional Foodbank, a member of America's Second Harvest-The Nation's Food Bank Network.
