The documentary is centered around Carole King’s and James Taylor’s legendary 2010 Troubadour Reunion Tour, and includes exclusive footage.
Carole King & James Taylor: Just Call Out My Name celebrates King’s and Taylor’s relationship of 50 years. Their expansive 2010 concert tour reunited these beloved singer/songwriters for a rare musical experience. The set list for the film contains a breadth of material, including songs that they first performed together in 1970 at The Troubadour, the famed Los Angeles music venue that initially helped propel them both onto the world stage, and again in 2007 at the club’s 50th anniversary. Songs in the documentary include: “Country Road,” “Natural Woman,” “Fire and Rain,” “Beautiful,” “Carolina in My Mind,” and many more.
In an exclusive interview for the film, King and Taylor describe some of the stories behind their music. Recently, four-time Grammy® Award-winner Carole King was also inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, for the second time; and, six-time Grammy® Award-winner James Taylor’s acclaimed live tour continues throughout 2022. Musicians Danny Kortchmar, Russ Kunkel, and Lee Sklar, who formed the original band, “The Section”, each bring their own unique perspectives in celebration for this reunion on film.
