  1. CPR

    CPR or Crosby, Pevar & Raymond was a rock/jazz band that consisted of David Crosby, session guitarist Jeff Pevar, and pianist James Raymond. The first song that Crosby and Raymond co-wrote, "Morrison", was performed live for the first time in January 1997. The song recalled Crosby's feelings about the portrayal of Jim Morrison in the movie The Doors. The success of the 1997 tour spawned a record project, CPR, which was released in March 1998. The group disbanded in 2004, though Raymond continues to perform with Crosby as part of the touring bands for Crosby & Nash and Crosby, Stills & Nash. Jeff Pevar sometimes tours with Jefferson Starship.

    We know from the research we've done that Latinos are 30 percent less likely to have CPR performed and what the study really showed it was not that Latinos don't want to do CPR or that they're afraid of it, it's truly, I think, that we haven't gotten the messaging out on how important it is and how easy it is to do, especially now that you can do it without breathing into somebody’s mouth - you can do hands-only CPR.
