CSN Jazzing It Up
Crosby, Stills and Nash will start their spring and summer tour with two benefit shows at New York’s Jazz at Lincoln Center.
The Crosby, Stills & Nash Songbook shows will have the trio backed by the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis, with the proceeds going to Jazz at Lincoln Center. A private Gala Concert is on May 1st, with one for the public on May 3rd. The Gala will honor Mica Ertegun, a Jazz at Lincoln Center board member and the widow of Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun. She’ll receive the Ed Bradley Award for Leadership in Jazz.
Stephen Stills recently paid a visit to the Sunset Strip’s Gibson GuitarTown exhibit. The art guitar was created by local Los Angeles artist Juliana Martinez and features mosaic tile with symbols that are tied to Stills’s first band, Buffalo Springfield, and their song “For What It’s Worth.”
