Academy Award winner Al Pacino, whose films include the "Godfather" trilogy, "Serpico," "Dog Day Afternoon," "...And Justice for All," "Glengarry Glen Ross" and "Scent of a Woman," will be among the performers recognized in December at the annual Kennedy Center Honors in Washington, D.C. Also named as honorees: singer-songwriter James Taylor, gospel/soul singer Mavis Staples, Argentine pianist Martha Argerich and the rock band The Eagles.

So glad James Taylor is going to be honored.

 

I should have mentioned that The Eagles were scheduled for last year's class, but asked for a deferral because of the illness of Glenn Frey. Unfortunately, he died a month after the 2015 Kennedy Center Honors.
