Review: Crow offers a rocking and exquisite spectacle | Music
Sheryl Crow has written a career of memorable songs and is a wonderful singer.
But deep down, she’s a rock’n’roller.
This was just one of the revelations from Crow’s two-hour show on a beautiful Tuesday night at the Pinewood Bowl.
Taking the stage for a Rolling Stones song, the first clue of what was to come, Crow and his band – a classic Stones-style lineup of two guitars, keyboards, bass and drums – set out on “Every Day is a Winding. Road “.
Sweeping that hit, she followed it up with “All I Wanna Do”, another hit that rocked and rolled harder live than on record.
That rock ‘n’ roll spirit was brought home by a couple of covers: a high-tempo, upbeat rendition of “The First Cut Is The Deepest” by Cat Stevens and a raw version of “Everything is” by Bob Dylan. Broken “which saw Crow exchange lines with bassist Robert Kearns.
Appropriately enough, Crow grabbed a harmonica in the middle of Dylan’s song – one of the few instruments she played and played well.
The acoustic guitar was his main tool, making the band ring and train through âHard to Make a Standâ. The electric piano came out for a beautiful and heartfelt “My Favorite Mistake”.
