I think we got some reviews of James Taylor's appearance at Verizon on the open line last night. Brian Chilson was on hand for photos. Can't help the nostalgia. Taylor is musical madeleines for me, sharp memories of specific times and events. "Fire and Rain" is on the radio for a 3 a.m. drive on St. Charles Blvd. back to a French Quarter apartment after a memorable day of introducing traveling French girls to New Orleans in the summer of 1970. Au revoir, Jacqueline.
