James Taylor and Carole King

We attended the James Taylor and Carole King “Troubadour Reunion” concert at Vector Arena in April and it was a fantastic evening.  I grew up with the music of James Taylor and so when I heard he was coming to Auckland I knew I had to see him perform live.  We were lucky to get perfect seats (second row, just slightly left of center) so the view was perfect.  My over-whelming impression from the evening was just how nice a guy James seems to be.  I mean, his music would suggest that, being all mellow and the like,  but when you are just a few metres away from him, you can sense the warmth and decency within him.  Anyway, here is a video we took of one of the numbers from their encore, “You Can Close Your Eyes”.  Enjoy.
