5.0 out of 5 stars Crosby's Incandescent Late-Career Masterpiece January 28, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
David Crosby occupies a paradoxical position in American music. He is simultaneously one of the most celebrated and one of the most underappreciated musicians of his gifted generation -- a generation that produced the timeless voices and visions of Bob Dylan, James Taylor, Neil Young, and many others. He is also one of the most quietly influential. By singing Dylan's early songs in the Byrds in crystalline harmony, Crosby gave the folksinger's career a significant boost. After hearing an unknown waif named Joni Mitchell sing in a club, he got her a recording contract that ensured her maximum creative freedom and produced her first record, launching her on her own intimitable career path. Crosby also turned the Beatles on to Ravi Shankar, and the world of pop music was never the same again. His music has been consistently fascinating, stretching the boundaries of pop, informed by jazz and world music as much as folk -- as Miles Davis knew when he recorded Crosby's sublime "Guinnevere" -- but as a result, his songs have never gotten the radio play of the tunes by his gifted bandmates in Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young. [Disclosure: I've been listening to Crosby's music since I was a teenager in 1970, and have had the pleasure of knowing him since the early 1990s.]

From the first bars of "What's Broken," it's obvious that two-time Rock-and-Roll Hall of Famer Crosby is not resting on his Woodstock laurels for a second. This is one of the freshest, most innovative, and most vital albums of the year -- in no small part because Crosby forged an intimate musical collaboration with his brilliant son, James Raymond, whose keyboards and orchestral imagination turn these songs into cinematic landscapes that haunt your dreams.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crosby's first solo album in 20 years has sweet vibe January 28, 2014
By Tom
Format:Audio CD
"Croz," the first solo album in over twenty years from Byrds and CS&N legend, David Crosby, is simply a joy to listen to. The eleven mellow tunes feature Croz in fine singing voice backed by his son, James Raymond, on keyboards, with a number of other fine musicians including Crosby regulars Steve DiStanislao on drums and Shane Fontayne on guitar along with guitarist Marcus Eaton and woodwind virtuoso Steve Tavaglione. There are also appearances from heavyweights, bassist Lee Sklar and Dire Straits' Sultan of Swing, guitarist Mark Knopfler (who lays down a stunning track on "What's Broken"). The songs are primarily gentle melodies with Raymond's jazzy keyboards front and center but there's still enough of a beat and driving lead guitar with plenty of engaging hooks and choruses to keep your foot tapping. Wynton Marsalis's exquisite trumpet solo on "Holding On To Nothing" is a gem. Long-time fans will relish this ethereal collection from Crosby who proves he can still create excellent music at the age of 72. Given his history it's a minor miracle that Croz is still making music.

Fifty years ago David Crosby co-founded The Byrds with Jim (later Roger) McGuinn, Gene Clark, Chris Hillman, and Michael Clarke. The band's distinctive "folk-rock" sound featuring McGuinn's chiming Rickenbacker electric twelve-string and Crosby's sublime high harmonies directly influenced the Beatles and Dylan and launched a myriad of imitators. By the time The Byrds began recording their fifth album, The Notorious Byrd Brothers, Crosby had emerged as the leading creative force within the group but was unceremoniously fired by McGuinn and Hillman due to personal and artistic differences.

5.0 out of 5 stars A prodigal son returns in style January 28, 2014
Format:Audio CD
What a relief! The comeback of a musician I have always admired after 20 years, much of them spent in turmoil and rehab, could have been dreadful but I think this is a really good album. I had an advance copy and it's taken quite a few listens to settle in, but I'd expect that from David Crosby - you don't turn to his music for undemanding comfort food.

It's sobering to realise that it's nearly 45 years since I first heard Guinevere and Wooden Ships, because after all those years they are still among my favourite tracks ever. Those elements which made Crosby's music so brilliant and distinctive back then are still evident in many places on this quite varied album: the modal, broken guitar chords in untypical sequences, the meandering almost recitative-like interludes and the great, often beautiful, often thrillingly singable passages all feature strongly. It doesn't always work for me here (as it didn't always then), but for the great majority of this album it works really well.

There's quite an introspective air over the album. The feel of the tracks varies from the harmonically rich and fairly jazzy like the opener What's Broken and Set That Baggage Down through the quite beat-driven (like The Clearing) to the spare and quite amazing If She Called, a song about the emotional turmoil of a prostitute. The lyrics are diverse and generally very good, often reflecting on the vicissitudes of life and moving on from damage and pain. You know, too, that when he sings "I'm a troubled soul searching for peace in the night," in the lovely Dangerous Night, for example, it comes from deep experience and is a lot more than just another song lyric.

It's amazing that David Crosby has retained his tone-perfect voice for so long, as well as his top-notch songwriting skills. I highly recommend this album.

3.0 out of 5 stars Crosby without the Stills, Nash or Young
I like him best as part of CSN or CSNY. His voice and guitar playing are magical in blending other voices together, but as a solo singer, meh, not as good. Read more

This album is built around the lyrics. There are no amazing riffs or tricky guitar work, it is clearly a Crosby folk type album with autobiographical overtones. Read more

NO audio samples for CROZ ??
You may not order Croz before you hear samples, but you definitely won't order it or hear samples until AFTER it is released on January 28.
