JT is the eighth studio album by American singer-songwriter James Taylor, originally released in June 1977 via Columbia Records.

Recorded in 1977, James Taylor's first album for Columbia Records made a huge impact on the hit charts. The album peaked at number 4 of the US Billboard 200, and the singles "Handy Man" and "Your Smiling Face" hit high on the charts as well. 

JT meant a new direction for the Folk Pop singer, as he shows a newly found positive approach to his songwriting material.

Gone were his 'rainy day man' sensitive croons, in comes this mainstream, sunny easy listening vibe.

Taylor mixes his patented acoustic guitar-based Folk sound with elements of Rock, Blues and Country to great effect. 

This album also contains several Taylor classic songs such as "Secret O' Life" and "Terra Nova", with the participation of Taylor's then-wife Carly Simon. Also featured on the album were some stellar musicians, including David Sanborn (saxophone), David Campbell (string arrangements), Danny Kortchmar (guitars), Russ Kunkel (drums), Linda Ronstadt (vocals), Leland Sklar (bass) and Dan Dugmore (steel guitar).

At the 1978 Grammy Awards, Taylor won the Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for his chart-topping version of "Handy Man".   JT itself was also nominated for Album of the Year, but lost to Rumours by Fleetwood Mac.

JT stands as Taylor's biggest selling career album with over 3.5 million copies sold in the United States alone.

Check out the following tracks:  "Your Smiling Face"; "Handy Man"; "Secret O' Life"; "Terra Nova"; and "If I Keep My Heart Out of Sight".

Just like the original European pressings, this Music On Vinyl 180 Gram Audiophile reissue album is housed in a gatefold sleeve and contains a lyric sheet, pressed in Europe.
