Jimmy Webb in Concert
** POSTPONED UNTIL FEBRUARY 22, 2013 **
A true living legend of songwriting, Jimmy Webb has been crafting amazing songs, many of which have become cherished standards, for 40 years. And he’s still doing it. A recent Webb album, Just Across The River, featuring duets with many luminaries, including Jackson Browne, Michael McDonald, Glen Campbell, Vince Gill, Billy Joel, Linda Ronstadt and more, serve as bridge that connects this songwriter with his famous songs in the public mind.
Jimmy Webb wrote: “Wichita Lineman,” “By The Time I Get To Phoenix,” “Galveston,” “The Moon’s A Harsh Mistress,” “All I Know,” “The Highwayman,” “Up, Up and Away,” “MacArthur Park,” and many more. And those are just the famous ones. Webb is one of those rare songwriters who bring a genuine measure of magic to everything he touches.
“He’s a prodigious performer, and a night with Jimmy at the keys is not unlike getting to hear George Gershwin or Cole Porter live. It’s hard to believe one guy could have written all these amazing songs. People ask why nobody writes songs like they used to. Fortunately for us all, Jimmy Webb still does.” - American Songwriter Magazine.
