Crosby, Stills and Nash are incorporating multimedia more by filming their live concerts. Last month they released, CSN 2012 on DVD/CD and Blu-Ray/CD. I’m thinking the positive results Crosby-Nash achieved with their Crosby-Nash: In Concert (which we saw filmed) prompted CSN to release more concert video packaging.
I have seen various permeation’s of the band, hybrid and solo over the years, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Crosby-Nash, Stephen Stills, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, and Neil Young (with Crazy Horse). Each was an exciting and warm experience. I just love how soothing their harmonies are.
I float back in time to 1969 when the folk rock supergroup first appeared. Their classic first album has never been bettered
I’m thankful for a recorded concert of Crosby, Stills and Nash from their 2012 tour. When I want to hear and see them live again they are as close as my video entertainment system. 🙂
A common question asked about aged bands is who is still in the band from the original group. It just so happens that three of the original Kansas band members still perform together. They are Phil Eheart (drums), Steve Walsh (keyboards and lead vocals), and Rich Williams (guitar).
I sold a lot of their vinyl when I ran the record department at Caldor in 1978 and 1979, especially their double live LP, Two for the Show. It will be nice to have them in the neighborhood on Saturday afternoon 🙂
The International Festival of Arts and Ideas closes out tomorrow night on the New Haven Green with a headliner concert from Rosanne Cash and her band. Its been a fantastic festival this year.
Rosanne Cash will highlight music from her recording, The List. The List is a deeply personal album: a peaen to her father, Johnny Cash. The selections and the album’s title derive from the list of 100 Essential Country Songs that her father had compiled for her and instructed her to learn when she joined his road show after high school graduation.
The American songwriter says The List is “imbued with tremendous life force.”
It bodes being a wonderful evening under the stars in New Haven with one our nation’s gifted singer/songwriters, Rosanne Cash. 🙂
Imagine my joy to learn that I have a premier music performance space right around the corner from my house. Its called Studio 8 and its at 215 Pepe’s Farm Road in Milford, Ct. A friend of mine from my Digital Equipment Corporation days (1983-1992) Kat Sarracco and her brother, Frank own and manage this private party lounge. They have a music production and Web design company, Neko Productions.
It’s been 33 years since we last saw Jeff Lorber Fusion play live. We caught them at the early show in 1979 at The Bitter End in the Village. The album they were featuring in those days was Water Sign(their 3rd album). I had discovered them first on their second album, Soft Space in 1978. I later purchased Wizard Album, their next recording in 1980 and then lost touch with them. It will be nice to get reacquainted with Jeff Lorber Fusion and Kat Sarraco later today. 🙂
