With his mother's encouragement, Webb learned piano and organ, and by the age of 12 was playing in the choir of his father's churches, accompanied by his father on guitar and his mother on accordion. During the late s, Webb began applying his creativity to the music he was playing at his father's church, frequently improvising and rearranging the hymns. Webb was drawn to the singer's distinctive voice.
Following the death of his mother inhis father made plans to return to Oklahoma. Webb decided to stay in California to continue his music studies and to pursue a career as a songwriter in Los Angeles. Webb would later recall his father warning him about his musical aspirations, saying, "This songwriting thing is going to break your heart. Webb contributed five songs to their debut album, Up, Up and Awayincluding the title track " Up, Up and Away ", which was released as a single in May and reached the Top Ten.
Webb's success as a new songwriter underscored what became the central dilemma in his career. While his sophisticated melodies and orchestrations were embraced by mainstream audiences, his peers were embracing counterculture sounds. Webb was quickly becoming out of sync with his times. One of the songs, " MacArthur Park ", was a long, complex piece with multiple movements that was originally rejected by the group The Association.
Despite the song's seven minute, twenty-one second length, Harris's version reached 2 on the Hot on 22 June The album A Tramp Shining stayed on the charts for almost a year. Webb and Campbell had first met during the production of a General Motors commercial. Webb arrived at the recording session with his Beatle -length hair and approached the conservative singer, who looked up from his guitar and said, "Get a haircut. Webb finished up the year by writing, arranging, and producing Thelma Houston 's first album, Sunshower.
He began to withdraw from the formulaic process in which he worked and began to experiment with his music. He started work on a semi-autobiographical Broadway musical called His Own Dark City, which reflected the emotional displacement he felt at the time.
He also wrote music for the films How Sweet It Is! According to Webb, the album was produced "by a bunch of ruffians from some old demos of mine and tarted up to sound like 'MacArthur Park'". Words and MusicAnd So: Despite the critical reception that followed each of these projects, Webb has never been as successful as a performer as he has been as a songwriter and arranger. Each album was noted for its inventive music and memorable lyrics.
Rolling Stone writer Jon Landau called one of the album's cuts, "P. Sloan", a "masterpiece [that] could not be improved upon". The album also features the ambitious song trilogy "Music for an Unmade Movie".
Webb's follow up album, And So: Onproved equally appealing to critics. Webb's album Letterswhich features his own rendition of "Galveston", met with similar praise. Music critic Bruce Eder called Letters the "most surprising, diverse, and possibly the most satisfying of all of Jimmy Webb's early solo LPs" and "arguably the best of Webb's solo albums".
Produced, arranged, and conducted by The Beatles ' former producer, George Martinthe album was Webb's "most polished effort yet as a performer". Apart from "Scissors Cut" and "In Cars", which were previously recorded by Art Garfunkelthe album offered few high points, despite its polished production.
Throughout the s and into the s, Webb's songs continued to be recorded by some of the industry's most successful artists. Webb is quoted as saying he had a crush on Mary Wilson when he wrote and produced "I Keep It Hid" featuring her on lead vocals.
Inthe initial release of Art Garfunkel 's Watermark album consisted exclusively of songs by Webb. InDonna Summer 's disco version of "MacArthur Park" became a multi-million selling vinyl single that was number one on the American pop music charts for three weeks. The latter was performed live in by the born-again Bob Dylan. Tanya Tucker recorded "Tennessee Woman" on her album Dreamlovers. Large-scale projects, —92[ edit ] From toWebb turned his focus from solo performing to large-scale projects, such as film scoresBroadway musicals, and classical music.
Inhe produced the soundtrack for the film The Last Unicornan animated children's tale, with the musical group America performing five new Jimmy Webb songs:
