Additional Information

Celebrating the iconic albums that launched the careers of the major singer/songwriters of our age, “Cover Stories” is a brilliant new series of concerts celebrating the albums that launched the careers of the major singer/songwriters from the late 50’s to the present. Some concerts feature complete renditions of an artist’s breakthrough album; others take the form of an overview of his/her body of work. But each presentation captures the spirit of the original recordings while re-imagining the songs for new voices.

In a fitting “hats off” to one of the greatest song stylists of the 20th century, Sweet Baby James: The Music of James Taylor features a generation of singer/musicians influenced by James Taylor. This ensemble of seven (playing piano/synth, guitar, bass, drums, cello vocals) stars Bob Stillman as lead vocalist and one of New York City’s leading club and studio singers, Connie James. Together, they render versions of Taylor’s classic bittersweet country rock songs built around love, friendship, loss and life, including “Sweet Baby James,” “Sunny Skies,” “Blossom,” “Steamroller,” “Oh, Susannah,” and “Fire And Rain.”

Produced by Ligeti Artists and theshowstore.com, the Cover Stories Concert Series is the brainchild of Peter Ligeti, in collaboration with music director, featured artist, and two-time Tony nominated actor Bob Stillman. Each concert program’s new vocal and band arrangements are rendered flawlessly by a repertory company of first rate New York and Nashville musicians. User-friendly media players exclusively from Theshowstore.com offer premium promotional support for each program in the series and adapt to an array of digital settings.

In 2009, the Cover Stories Concert Series, premiered before select PAC and orchestral audiences including The Kravis Center in Florida, and The Buffalo Philharmonic. SRO Artists will broaden national touring activity of the Cover Stories series to include major PACs, orchestras, festivals, universities, and nightclubs in all market sizes through the 2012/13 season.
