    It’s a pleasure to report that he’s come up with something much more tangible than a mere phoned-in hash of former glories.

    The broader palette suits him. [Nov 2017, p.107]

    Unlike the mostly acoustic-led Lighthouse, Sky Trails finds him in full band mode, engaging in a nuanced blend of folk, soul and jazz that echoes vintage triumphs like Guinnevere and Déjà Vu.

    These songs, masterfully written and delivered with obvious passion from one of America’s most veteran and idiosyncratic composers, show that Crosby is perhaps getting better with age and seems confident in his abilities as a singer and songwriter still willing to take chances.

    This is the kind of record that most aging rockers (and a considerable amount of much younger rockers) would love to have made.

    At times the production is overly slick, but Sky Trails is a strong, sinuous piece of work. [Nov 2017, p.37]

    At 76, Crosby sounds more than comfortable alongside his producer/co-writer son James Raymond and a trio of sympathetic studio musicians who evoke Mitchell's singular sound with echoes of Wayne Shorter from saxophonist Steve Tavaglione and Jaco Pastorius from fretless bassist Mai Agan.
