James Taylor at Sleep Train Pavilion 

June 4, 2014
James Taylor wowed the crowd at the Sleep Train Pavilion Tuesday night in Concord. James pulled select material from a vast repertoire of songs spanning an almost 50 year career. Tracks with lyrics even Bob Dylan would have envied in his prime like “Fire and Rain”, “Carolina in My Mind”, and “Sweet Baby James” were performed with a stellar band. Before performing his song “Something in the Way She Moves” he told the story of how Paul McCartney helped him get his big break and recalled how he performed the song in front of George Harrison and Paul before being signed to Apple Records. Special guests included Livingston Taylor, James’s brother. Photography by Jamie Soja.
