James Taylor at Carnegie Hall: April 12th
James Taylor kicked off Carnegie Hall’s 120th Anniversary with a Gala Concert on April 12th. Part one of the Perspectives series took a look at past performances on the fabled stages of Carnegie Hall over the past 120 years.
42nd President of the United States Bill Clinton was present, but did not unleash his saxophone skills upon the crowd that night. The performances were left to the professionals, like Bette Midler, who honored vaudeville star Sophie Tucker. Diane Reeves payed tribute to Billie Holiday and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Sting[/lastfm] payed homage to his fellow countrymen, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Beatles[/lastfm].
