It takes an extraordinary artist to re-imagine some of the most beloved songs of the 20th century and make them completely their own. And that's precisely what James Taylor has accomplished with his brand-new album, "American Standard". Unlike most who have tackled similar material, "American Standard"'s beautifully simple, stripped-down arrangements are based on James' skilful acoustic guitar work rather than piano and the effect is mesmerizing.
