It begins with a funny song for our times, "Stress" by Jim Infantino, ends with Kate Taylor's lovely, "I've Got A Message"
Kate Taylor is celebrating the release of her brand new album, WHY WAIT! produced by the same musician who produced her "Sister Kate" album 50 years ago -- Peter Asher -- where she is rejoined by the musicians who played on that first album all those years ago. And she's having a ball. She closed this month's Greenwich Village Folk Festival solo, from the couch in her home on Martha's Vineyard. We are so thrilled for her that she is having so much fun again sharing her music.
