Description

THE MARTY STUART SESSIONS

The Marty Stuart Sessions concert series is made possible in part by the Library of Congress Packard Campus for Audio Visual Conservation and Marty Stuart's Congress of Country Music. The series is a part of an ongoing effort to celebrate, heighten awareness of and preserve traditional American music. In 2016, the Library acquired hundreds of hours of Marty Stuart’s audio-visual collection of country music, one of the largest private collections of memorabilia documenting country-music history.

JIMMY WEBB

Jimmy Webb is an American songwriter, composer and singer known worldwide as a master of his trade. Not many artists can say they premiered a classical nocturne and had a Grammy-nominated rap song with Kanye West (“Do What You Gotta Do” on “Famous”) in the same year, but Jimmy’s career is full of surprises. Since his first platinum hit “The Worst That Could Happen,” Webb has had numerous hits including “Up, Up and Away,” “By the Time I Get to Phoenix,” “Wichita Lineman,” “Galveston,” “All I Know” and “MacArthur Park,” and has also become a leader and mentor in the industry as a champion for songwriters.

Webb is the only artist ever to have received Grammy Awards for music, lyrics and orchestration. His numerous accolades include the Academy of Country Music’s Poet Award (2016) and the prestigious Ivor Novella International Award (2012). In 2016, Rolling Stone listed Webb as one of the top 50 songwriters of all time. Jimmy Webb was the youngest person ever inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame and served as its Chairman. He has also served proudly as the Vice Chair of ASCAP. Time and again Webb has paved the way for songwriters in an ever changing media landscape, spearheading the ongoing effort to preserve the rights of songwriters.

Webb’s memoir, THE CAKE AND THE RAIN (April 2017, St. Martin’s Press) is a surprising and unusual book. Webb’s talent as a writer and storyteller is on every page, rich with a sense of time and place, and with the voices of characters, vanished and living, famous and not. Readers share his experiences as he moves from simple and sere Oklahoma to fast and fantastical Los Angeles. Webb’s first book, Tunesmith: Inside the Art of Songwriting, in addition to being a good read, is considered a “bible” among musicians.

Jimmy Webb’s songs have been recorded or performed by an impressive range of artists including Frank Sinatra, Barbra Streisand, Glen Campbell, Art Garfunkel, Linda Ronstadt, R.E.M., Michael Feinstein, Isaac Hayes and Judy Collins. According to BMI, his song “By the Time I Get to Phoenix” was the third most performed song in the 50 years between 1940 and 1990. Webb continues to write and record, and has released ten solo albums since the 1970s, while also writing for other artists. His latest two CDs, Just Across the River and Still Within the Sound of My Voice, feature duets on some of his biggest songs with friends including Billy Joel, Jackson Browne, Vince Gill, Willie Nelson, JD Souther, Glen Campbell, Lucinda Williams, Michael McDonald, Mark Knopfler, Brian Wilson, David Crosby, Graham Nash, Lyle Lovett, Keith Urban, and more.

Webb currently tours the world with a variety of concerts, “An Evening with Jimmy Webb” - a humorous master class of songs and stories; “Jimmy Webb: The Glen Campbell Years” - a multimedia musical celebration of his friend and collaborator; and a orchestral pops concert. In October 2016 Webb premiered his “Nocturne for Piano and Orchestra (Nocturne for “Lefty”)”.

Webb is married to Laura Savini, a producer and host for PBS. He has five handsome sons, one beautiful daughter, and recently became a grandfather to precious Josephine.
