James Taylor has just released a wonderful new collection called "American Standard." It’s a collection of great covers of music from the American songbook of Broadway and movie songs. This week on the show, we use James’ new CD as inspiration, exploring American Standards performed by folk and acoustic musicians. We’ll hear music from Childsplay, Fiddle Fever, Bob Dylan, The Burnett Sisters Band and many more. Great American Songs … this week on The Sing Out! Radio Magazine.
