He joined Kool & the Gang in 1978 and became the band's lead singer in 1979.

James Taylor’s first album was released in 1968 on the Beatles legendary Apple Records label. Since his debut album, James Taylor has released 16 more studio albums. As of this writing, James Taylor’s most recent album entitled Before This World was released in 2015. James Taylor has also released a beautiful Christmas album and two collections of cover songs. Taylor’s record companies have also put out a handful of greatest hits and essentials compilations. On our list, you’ll find none of this greatest hits albums. Let’s look at JT, which is, for lack of a better descriptor, possibly the most James Taylor-est of James Taylor’s records. Released in 1977, right after he was signed to Columbia and in the middle of his famous marriage to Carly Simon, JT displays the full depth and breadth of Taylor’s abilities as an artist. You want slow and poignant? Secret O’ Life.
