JT is the eighth studio album by American singer-songwriter James Taylor, and his first album for Columbia Records. Released in June 1977, two hit singles were spawned from the album: “Handy Man”, a Jimmy Jones cover, which peaked at #4 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and also topped the Adult Contemporary chart. “Your Smiling Face”, the other big hit, peaked at #20. The record also contains other Taylor classics such as “Secret O’ Life” and “Terra Nova”, with the participation of Taylor’s then-wife Carly Simon.
At the 1978 Grammy Awards, Taylor won the Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for his version of “Handy Man”. JT itself was also nominated for Album of the Year, but lost to Rumours by Fleetwood Mac.
JT was Taylor’s highest-charting album since Mud Slide Slim and the Blue Horizon, and stands as Taylor’s biggest-selling studio album in the United States with over 3.5 million copies sold.
