It’s nice to discover that “Autumn In New York” isn’t just a lovely song – every so often it proves to be a lovely evening as well.  Tonight was one of the latter as a concert featuring performances by the Counting Crows, Gavin DeGraw, Alison Strauss and the incomparable Carole King celebrated the release of Ken Burns’ latest documentary series.

Hosted by the National Parks Conservation Association and PBS, “Feel Free: A National Parks Celebration in Central Park”  featured highlights from Ken Burns’s new PBS documentary, “The National Parks: America’s Best Idea,” (premiering September 27 on PBS) and musical acts by an array of talented performers. The live show from East Meadow in Central Park was shared via satellite to PBS affiliates and other partners assembled in various locations around the country.
