Sheryl Crow jammed with the motley trio of Kid Rock, Keith Richards and Stevie Nicks on Monday night, in the second of what promises to be a regular series of intimate club shows in New York.
The show, at the downtown club Shine, saw Crow cover part of Madonna's "Don't Tell Me" and duet with Kid Rock on Dobie Gray's classic "Drift Away."
Richards joined Crow for covers of Fats Domino's "Ain't That a Shame" and Buddy Holly's "Not Fade Away," while Crow and Nicks took on the latter's duet with Tom Petty, "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around."
Crow will most likely continue to play low-key club dates in New York as she records the follow-up to her 1998 album The Globe Sessions, according to her management.
Well into recording the self-produced new album, Crow is pursuing what her management described as an energetic rock direction.
Crow's written and recorded several songs in collaboration with Kid Rock, but it's not yet known whether those songs will be included on the album, which is due this fall.
The singer/songwriter's last release was 1999's Sheryl Crow and Friends: Live from Central Park, which captured a concert that included guest appearances from both Richards and Nicks.
She also co-produced and performed on several tracks on Nicks' just-released new album, Trouble in Shangri-La, including "It's Only Love," which the duo sang together Monday night.
