One Man Band marks a return to an earlier, simpler style of performance for the quintessential singer-songwriter. The DVD, produced and directed by Don Mischer ("Kennedy Center Honors," and "Super Bowl XLI Halftime Show with Prince") and executive produced by Sydney Pollack ("Out of Africa," "Sketches of Frank Gehry"), helps tell the stories behind some of Taylor's most beloved hits through exclusive interviews, rare multi-media footage, home movies and photographs from Taylor's personal archives. The result is an extraordinary, one-of-a-kind portrait of an iconic American artist, his renowned repertoire and the personal stories behind the songs.

"This project has been working in my mind for years," says Taylor. "Performing these songs in their original, stripped-down form in small halls is like going to the well for water. It reconnects me to the music and puts me back in touch with the audience."

Mr. Taylor began his career in the late-‘60s with a guitar, a suitcase and a handful of original songs. On "One Man Band," Taylor returns to this spirit and showcases material over the past 40 years from "Something in the Way She Moves," "Carolina In My Mind," "Fire and Rain," right up to "Mean Old Man" and "My Traveling Star" from Taylor's most recent release "October Road." Filmed at recent concerts at the Colonial Theatre in the Berkshires, the performances feature insightful and humorous anecdotes on the inspiration for the songs.
