“Sky Trails”, the sixth full-length solo studio release for the singer-songwriter also known as founding members of The Byrds and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, continues fearless folk rock legend David Crosby’s unexpected late-period resurgence. In his eighth decade, Crosby is not only surviving, but thriving personally and creatively. This project contains new material co-written with friends Michael McDonald and Joni Mitchell and produced by his son, James Raymond.
Twenty years of recording silence is an interlude like no other… But that’s what David Crosby decided on before going back solo to the studio to record Croz in 2014… For this unexpected comeback at the age of 72 years old, the ex-member of Byrds and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young invited a few friends along, such as Wynton Marsalis and Mark Knopfler. While Crosby remained one of the sharpest shooter in rock history, his ever so rare solo initiatives were never earth shattering, except for the immense If I Could Only Remember My Name, a forgotten treasure from 1971… But Croz, which combined psychedelic rock, conventional folk and soft jazz, proved to be a quality album one could enjoy a bit more on each new listen. Crosby went back at it in 2016 with the very acoustic Lighthouse! And once again with Sky Trails, proving one more time that the old walrus still has some beautiful stories to tell. With touching vocal harmonies and careful crafted melodies, this fifth solo album, clearly oriented towards jazz, reminds those who may have forgotten, as well as younger listeners, that his voice still counts! Worth pointing out, a beautiful cover of Joni Mitchell’s Amelia.
