Review: Crosby, Stills & Nash can still create magic

A legendary trio took the stage Tuesday night at the Peace Center to lead a sell-out crowd through a magical three-hour set of classics both old and new. David Crosby sauntered in first, immediately bringing the crowd to its feet. Stephen Stills and a barefoot Graham Nash followed, taking their place on an oriental rug, which served as the stage’s only ornamentation.

Rolling Stone: Crosby, Stills and Nash Work Out With Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra

On January 27th, 1970, Miles Davis recorded a version of the medieval whisper "Guinevere" from Crosby, Stills and Nash's 1969 debut album, Crosby, Stills & Nash. Davis' take was in the manner of his recently-cut, not-yet-released album, Bitches Brew – 18 minutes of electric turmoil with a buzzing current of sitar and only passing references to David Crosby's original melody. It was a rare instance of Davis losing his way in an astutely chosen song. His "Guinevere" stayed in the can until 1979, when it appeared on the anthology Circle in the Round.

The Wall Street Journal: Crosby, Stills, Nash…and Jazz?

Presented last night at the Rose Theater at New York’s Jazz at Lincoln Center: Crosby, Stills, Nash and jazz.

The Hollywood Reporter: The venerable rock trio performs their greatest hits with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra.

Crosby, Stills & Nash were literally jazzed for their performance with Wynton Marsalis’ Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra on Friday night. The venerable rock band has been performing together for over four decades, and it’s not surprising that over the years a certain rote quality might have settled in. But delivering a program called The Crosby, Stills & Nash Songbook featuring their greatest hits as newly arranged by various members of the JALC, they demonstrated a giddy enthusiasm.
