"October Road" is the latest music project he outed since 2002. And now singer/songwriter James Taylor is working on his new album. "I've got four or five things started and near completion. Maybe I'll have something ready by March, but I wouldn't want to promise it." So the musician said.
In related news, Taylor reportedly will embark on his One Man Band tour next month. It is a shift away from his traditional full-band summer outings, about which he reveals "Larry Goldings is going to play keyboards with me, at least to start with. We're going to play smallish theaters, houses of around 3,000. We'll do that in the first half of March, the first of April, the first half of May, and beyond that we'll see."
Also it is said that Taylor will be honored February 6 for his musical and philanthropic contributions as the 2006 MusiCares Person of the Year, a Grammys-related event that raises funds for outreach programs for musicians.
